Digital Manufacturing promises a higher degree of automation and repeatable quality, continually striving for improvements and to eliminate defects. Much talked-about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) promise to transform the world of manufacturing and help to fill the skills gap which has opened up in the past decade. As well as techniques to improve throughput, consistency and quality, the rise of advanced modelling allows processes to be proven virtually before committing to the application of hardware. Smart factories and the Internet of Things are applications of Industry 4.0 (the fourth industrial revolution), and a post-pandemic world will no doubt wish to invest in increased automation and building resilience to guard against future vulnerabilities in the supply chain and resources required to manufacture tomorrow’s products.

This workshop is suited to anyone seeking to build knowledge or add to their network, by meeting and hearing experts in the field of Digital Manufacturing with lasers. The event is scheduled to be a live event, with hybrid access options for remote presentations.
