A new conference focused entirely on digital manufacturing has been launched by Steel Times International magazine.

The event, which will concentrate solely on the subject of Industry 4.0 – or ‘smart manufacturing’ as it is known in the USA – is aimed at senior level steel executives, particularly chief technology officers, who want to know more about the philosophy behind the topic and get involved in the live discussion.

Future Steel Forum will take place at the Sheraton Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, between 14 -15 June 2017 and promises to be an informative event.

Major steelmakers have already expressed an interest in taking part as speakers and there are a number of leading technology companies eager to explain the theoretical and practical elements of digital manufacturing and its relationship to steel production in the 21st century.

What is Industry 4.0 and how can it assist the global steel industry in its quest for greater efficiencies? These are two key questions, among many others, that will be answered by the experts in Warsaw next summer.
