Across the last 12 months, our industry has experienced change and transformation that presents many challenges and opportunities to local businesses.
From an APS Industrial perspective, this has meant further strengthening our ability to service local industry by partnering with leading global manufacturers and delivering a range of new product releases. From a broader industry point of view this has seen acceleration of digitalisation and industry 4.0 technologies and much more!
To ensure local business are as well-equipped as they can be to take advantage of the opportunities that are upon us all in 2020, we have carefully constructed 3 keynote presentations that each detail an emerging trend that will impact industry. These not to be missed key notes will be delivered at the New Choice Experience Tour brought to you by APS Industrial and it is our pleasure to invite you to join us.
KEYNOTE 1: NEW TECHNOLOGIES DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF AUTOMATION
Digitalisation opens up undreamed-of potentials to raise productivity, but what does it mean to Australian business? To benefit from the digital enterprise it’s crucial to utilise the best of automation, digitalisation and IT. When innovation can be adapted to fulfil the demanding requirements of industry, they can drive productivity and availability to new heights. This presentation will discuss emerging technologies such as Edge Computing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and how these futuristic topics are now being realised to provide new possibilities to solve traditional problems in our work places.
KEYNOTE 2: CYBERSECURITY FOR INDUSTRY 4.0 – MITIGATING CYBER THREATS FOR CRITICAL OT INFRASTRUCTURE
The fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, is creating a paradigm shift in virtually all industries on a global scale. The digitalisation and interconnectivity of industrial and process control systems underpins a myriad of business and operational efficiencies; however, these efficiencies do not come without their own set of challenges. In particular, digitalisation and greater interconnectivity increases cybersecurity threat vectors which must be managed in order to ensure the availability, performance, safety and reliability of mission-critical OT infrastructure.
KEYNOTE 3: REDUCING DESIGN, MANUFACTURING AND ASSEMBLY TIMES THROUGH DIGITALISATION
The digitalisation and automation of industrial control and switchgear design and manufacturing creates consistency throughout all processes and systems, increasing quality whilst significantly reducing manufacturing and assembly time. Rittal and EPLAN help industrial companies to add value to their processes and make them faster, more economical and more precise.
In addition to the keynote presentations from leading industry experts, you’ll also have exclusive access to an interactive trade show featuring our global manufacturing partners complete with live product displays and demonstrations as well as giveaways and pop-up training!
For added flexibility and to ensure you don’t miss out, we’re inviting you to choose between a Day Session or Evening Session – each packed full of valuable training and learnings as well as networking opportunities.
