Trailblazing in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Manufacturing 4.0 Seminar    6 December 9am-12pm          AFRC, InchinnanMACO performance

The Royal Bank of Scotland in conjunction with Martin Aitken & Co, Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS) and Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) are delighted to present this Manufacturing Event at the AFRC, Inchinnan.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 is a profound change – a period of upheaval and disruption. Industry 4.0 is the name given to the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies.

Existing business models are being tested and the challenge is to ensure firms are sufficiently robust and adaptable to plan for the future’s disruptive threats, and can capitalise on the new opportunities that will arise.

This event will give you the opportunity to understand these challenges in more detail and hear from industry experts the support available to get your company ‘future fit’.

We are delighted to be hosting this event in the ARFC which is a globally recognised centre of excellence in innovative manufacturing technologies.

There will be an opportunity to have a tour of the AFRC following the presentation, please advise in your response if you wish to join the tour. > Find out more about the AFRC
