Siemens PLM hosts half-day Machinery Academies

Siemens PLM is hosting a series of Machinery Academies in Manchester. These half-day events start at 10:00, finish at 14:00 and include a networking lunch. Forthcoming dates are:

  • 11 September
  • 6 November

Over the next decade, automation is set to take one in every three jobs in the UK's industrial centres. Companies that do not transform their operations to embrace digital technology will be at risk.

To ensure the UK remains at the heart of digital transformation, it is essential that industry and educational bodies - both public and independent - work together to make technology accessible for all. If you want to know more, join one of the half-day Machinery Academies in Manchester where Siemens will investigate industry challenges and facilitate open discussions so you can share your ideas with your peers and benefit from their ideas.

The questions that will be explored in each Machinery Academy are:

  • What is meant by 'digital twins' and how can they benefit your business?
  • What skills do you need to develop to gain maximum returns from next-generation machine design?
  • Where can your business get support in transforming your approach using digitalisation?
  • How can machines/lines/factories be designed to deliver optimised quality and efficiency?
  • How can digital technology enable flexibility and innovation to reduce time-to-market?

About the Machinery Academies

Siemens recognises that education is the key for the UK to address the challenge of automation. The academies are a new initiative being launched by Siemens PLM to bring together diverse machine builders in a collaborative environment to discuss the impact of digitalisation and automation. The events provide an opportunity to discuss what can be realised from new technologies relating to design, build and operation of machinery. In addition, a wide range of topics will be explored, with time allocated to openly discuss areas that are important to attendees and to share ideas.

The workshops include a tour of the new factory automation demonstration suite in Manchester (pictured right). A networking lunch is also provided.
