PI UK is announcing its support for Connected Manufacturing, part of Advanced Engineering 2018 which will take place at the NEC on 31 October/1st November.
Bob Squirrell, Chairman, PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI UK), says: "Connected Manufacturing 2017 was a great success, providing us with the ideal platform to present PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link. It was indeed a busy time for us, where we were able to meet, educate and inform many key buyers and specifiers from all over the UK during the two-day event.
"The exhibition and accompanying conference gave us the perfect opportunity to introduce these and show how they are fundamental to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things by providing deterministic control, data access, and uptime in an open platform.
We are looking forward to continuing our support for the Connected Manufacturing exhibition and conference this year, as it the perfect vehicle for our members to show how PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link are the three most important enabling technologies in automation today."
Already expanding as a result of its highly successful 2017 launch, Connected Manufacturing is the UK's largest trade show and forum bringing together manufacturers and suppliers of all sizes to further automate their planning, design, test, manufacturing and logistics processes - reducing costs and gaining more competitive advantage worldwide.
