Industry 4

An Industry 4.0 peer group dedicated to sharing knowledge on Industry 4.0 type technologies and digitisation.

The peer group meet regularly to learn what technologies are available to improve efficiencies and gain hands-on support in the application of these technologies in the business. All members of the groups work for progressive companies that are constantly seeking to improve.

We are excited to announce that the September meeting is to be held at Factory 2050 and welcome the industry’s most accessible and affordable manufacturing analytics software platform creators –  FourJaw to share their innovations in manufacturing.
