Leading partner in the world of metals

Digitalization and Industrie 4.0 are key challenges to the aluminium industry in the years to come. We will turn the spotlight on these topics at Aluminium 2018 and will present our answers to important future questions:  

⇒ How do we make production processes more transparent, more flexible, and more efficient by using intelligent sensors and algorithms?
What significance do new digital construction and manufacturing processes have regarding the design of plants or the availability of spare parts?
How does service benefit from digitalization? How is a more efficient maintenance of plants possible?
How can digital platforms simplify processes? What added value do they have?

However it is not just technological boundaries that will be redefined by digitalization. The way we work with customers and other partners will change, with cooperation becoming even closer in the future. As this "Leading Partner in the World of Metals", SMS group is getting together with customers to present projects at this fair that highlight this successful cooperation.
