engineered connectors and sensors, will talk about smart connectivity as the building block for Internet of Things (IoT). His goal at present is to drive business and technology incubation with a focus on automation that will increase energy efficiency, productivity, and convenience, and ultimately shape the future of factories, buildings or mass transportation systems. Sven Wolf, Managing Director of Leistritz Extrusion- stechnik, designers and manufacturers of customised extruders and turnkey extrusion lines for plastics compounding, will conclude the session with a focus on how to apply Industry 4.0 in real world plastics compounding operations.

businesses, as well as some of the potential challenges that must be faced. It will look at how Smart Factory principles can be applied to existing manufacturing methods, as well as how they may change the plastics processing supply chain.

Benefits for plastics The third session will provide an opportunity for delegates to find out about what Industry 4.0 means for the plastics sector. Industry 4.0 consigns today’s monitoring and fault diagnosis approach to manufactur- ing to history, replacing it with an environment within which individual items of equipment become “self- aware” and have the capacity to not only detect but to predict change and respond accordingly. It moves from a focus on the product to the entire product life cycle. Antonio Molina Coleto, Sales and Marketing Director for customized IML systems company IML Solutions, will look at intelligence applied to moulds and how predictive maintenance can achieve zero downtime. Benjamin Sutch, Chief Marketing Officer for global plastics automations manufacturer Moretto, will aid understanding of the benefits of Industry 4.0 in everyday plastics processing. Stefan Hoppe, Global Vice Presi- dent of the OPC Foundation, will wrap up the session with a presentation on OPC UA as a global standard for industrial interoperability and how the plastics industry needs to adopt the cloud. Hoppe has been the President of the OPC Europe organisation since 2010 and the catalyst for initiating liaisons with other industrial consortiums, resulting in OPC working groups develop- ing companion specifications for the organisation’s respective information models.


Connecting and security The final session of the conference will explore connectivity and security of Industry 4.0. Dr-Ing Thomas Uslaender, Head of Department ILT at Europe´s largest research institute in the field of image acquisition, processing and analysis Fraunhofer IOSB, will drill down into the details of architecture, standards and technologies. Susan Reiblein, an independent consul- tant, will close the conference with a presentation covering protection of the intellectual asset in the digital manufacturing process.
