Industry 4.0 Experience

Industry 4.0 Experience

2022 Highlights

2022 marked the fifth year of PMA and MetalForming magazine’s Internet of Things conference. New this year was an update to the name—from the Internet of Things Experience to the Industry 4.0 Experience for Metal Formers and Fabricators—to reflect the expanded scope of the conference to include more of the newest technologies in manufacturing. More than 60 participants joined us in Schaumburg, IL, with many more taking part virtually.

Participants heard eight presentations from industry leaders plus three case studies to learn how metal formers and fabricators are using the latest technologies to increase efficiencies, quality and profitability. In addition to all of the learning, participants took part in a cocktail reception to network with the speakers, sponsors and other attendees.

Thank you to our host, Amada Schaumburg Solution Center! With the conference taking place at Amada’s facility, we were able to tour the plant to see the latest machine tool technologies in action.

Information about the 2023 Industry 4.0 conference will be available in spring 2023.
