Description


Polymer Innovation Network – Wednesday 28th February 2018, 6.15pm – 8.30pm

‘The rise of the machines! …. myth busting Automation’

Automation is a cornerstone of the UK's industrial strategy and seen as the cure-all to fix everything; from the productivity gap, to Brexit and our on-going skills and wages crisis. But.... "what does Automation actually mean?" "What is achievable and what is coming next?" "How might I use 'the rise of machines' to my advantage?"

We invite you to come and find out more on Wednesday 28th February 2018.

For those new to the Polymer Innovation Network (PIN), it's part of our wider Digital Manufacturing Network, for all users, makers and processors of plastic and has successfully brought this important community together to help bridge the gap between industry and R&D.

Based at WMG's impressive International Institute for Product and Service Innovation PIN now boats over 500 members.

Find out about the latest materials research from WMG, current industry trends and future technologies, whilst meeting and collaborating with other like-minded businesses and colleagues from the WMG SME Group.

As usual, we invite expressions of interest from those who would like to deliver a two-minute PIN 'hotshot' talk on a particular product or service of their choice, related to the event theme.
