The first Virtual Manufacturing Day 2020 on November 24 is aimed at manufacturing companies from the automotive, medical or electronics industries that are looking for automation solutions specifically for product tracking. The exhibitors will showcase innovations in optical quality control, robot-supported production, analysis and diagnostics, in the use of materials such as metal or plastic, and in laser marking.

 Learn more about the importance of traceability in manufacturing and product application as well as about current developments in automation engineering by means of code reading and vision systems.


We look forward to welcoming you at the Virtual Manufacturing Day!

Double Feature

Digital events are very easy to attend. So why not take advantage of this and sport a double feature? No Problem with the 3d-platform ToM.

The „Smart automation“, a specialized fair for the industrial automation sector, complements the „Virtual Manufacturing Day“ for the visitor’s benefit.

To call a solution truly smart, it will have to solve more than one issue. That is why the  „Smart Automation“ is focussing on intelligent production, on integrated asset solutions.
