On Tuesday 27 april we organised the webinar "Machine Upgrading 4.0".

It is very likely that you have machines and installations in your production systems that are in need of an upgrade. These machines have proven their quality but do not offer the technical possibilities or energy efficiency that we expect from a modern state-of-the-art machine park. As a result of the industry 4.0 living lab 'Machine Upgrading 4.0', Flanders Make and the machine builder VINTIV joined forces with VLAIO to produce an inspiring white paper and webinar.


(attention: webinar and white paper are presented and written in Dutch)
