Unlocking the Hidden Value in Your Production with IIoT: Connect, Monitor, Diagnose, Improve

Learn how to get the most out of your production system IIoT technologies. This 3-hour workshop will explore not just how to get connected, but how to use the data collected at the point of operation to maximize the value in your production processes – at every level. The session will include:

  • An overview of IoT / I4.0 and the Bosch experience as both a lead user and lead provider of connected technologies;
  • How to know whether production monitoring is right for you using OEE, and online tools that can help you get started;
  • Leveraging the data – through process monitoring, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance; and finally,
  • Getting connected and use cases – in both brown field and green field situations.

The workshop will include a variety of live demonstrations to give participants a good understanding of available tools, practical applications and benefits, and how to get started. Participants will also have an opportunity to speak with Bosch and Bosch Rexroth experts who have been involved in implementing Industry 4.0 in Bosch manufacturing facilities.

Latest Advancements in Additive Manufacturing

How to take full advantage of the capabilities of additive manufacturing such as reduction of multipart assemblies into single components, which in turn, reduces product weight and assembly time. Or the ability to build complex features and internal channels that are otherwise impossible to manufacture. To achieve this, it is necessary to put aside some of the conventional manufacturing design rules, and look for ways to take advantage of the additive manufacturing processes.

Focusing best practices and material properties for stereolithograph and laser sintering, and also latest printing technologies including HP Multi Jet printers and XJet Nano Particle Jetting true benefits of “connecting.”

The Future of Making Things Through the Product Innovation Platform

We are in the midst of the next industrial revolution which is being fueled by next generation technology. Technology is driving disruption into the manufacturing marketplace at breakneck speed. In this environment, companies must rethink their innovation strategies to remain competitive and profitable. Product Designers and Manufacturers are now able to conceptualize, design, produce, sell and operate their products dramatically faster and in different ways than previously imagined. By harnessing the power of the disruptive forces at play, Manufacturing Leaders can find new ways to innovate leading to new value creation, new revenue streams, and creation of competitive separation. This is the future of making things. It is a time of great opportunity if you're prepared to take advantage. You don’t want to miss this informative workshop which will combine information with interactive learning to give you the information you need to capitalize on the disruption and thrive, not just survive.

In the Future of Making Things, manufacturers must embrace new, sometimes disruptive technologies to open new innovation streams and maintain competitive advantage. they need to increase agility and innovation across all stages of manufacturing.

You will understand how product design and manufacturing is changing, how to take advantage of the disrupters to increase value, and the importance of a product innovation platform as a means to take advantage of the rapidly changing landscape. You will learn about companies who have embraced the product innovation platform to transform their businesses. And you will be part of a hands-on interactive demo to see how the production innovation platform can give your business unprecedented levels of agility, connection & collaboration, iteration and validation to fuel innovation and capture value.

Room: 11

How to Embed Wireless Charging Into Next-Gen Products

Magnetic resonance technology allows wireless charging over distance, multiple device charging, charging through materials and high efficiency power transfer, and these benefits create a next-generation, seamless “drop and go” charging experience for end users. Enabled by magnetic resonance, the use cases for wireless charging that we can expect in the near future are endless; consider: consumer electronics, electric and autonomous vehicles, medical and implantable devices, industrial devices like underwater drilling or automated guided vehicles.

Making the Most of Metal 3D Printing

All signs are pointing to 2017 being an important year for 3D printing with innovative new technologies, new printers and new applications emerging. 3D printing has been a cost-effective prototyping option for some time now, but it is rapidly gaining steam as a production option as well.  With all of this change and innovation can also come confusion. 

In this deep dive presentation, Cullen Hilkene will provide a roadmap to making the most of 3D printing in this time of change. He will present the technologies, materials, and the economics of 3D printing with a goal of helping attendees become versed in the technology and know which technologies to choose for various projects.  The presentation will cover the major printing technologies and materials, with an emphasis on metal 3D printing.  He will provide perspective on best practices for weighing the purchase of 3D printing technology relative to outsourcing parts as a service.  He will also lend perspective gleaned from 3Diligent’s recent State of Professional and Industrial 3D Printing report.  

Participants in the presentation will leave with a clearer sense of the state of the 3D printing market and equipped with the knowhow to save time and money by utilizing the right 3D printing technology and sourcing approach for their project needs.

Wednesday Conference Sessions


Assisted Engineering Track:


Wednesday May 10, 2017

8:00am - 10:00am
Room: 11

Robotics and the Work Environment

Collaborative robotic applications are fundamentally changing the way people and machines interact on the plant floor. People and robots are working in closer proximity and more collaboratively than ever before. This is reducing physical burdens on workers, freeing floor space, saving money, improving production efficiency and increasing flexibility in the way robots are used.

A collaborative robot is only one part of a collaborative robot application, and it does not achieve safety compliance on its own. The way the system is designed is critical for optimizing worker safety and meeting compliance requirements. In this session, George will provide best practices for implementing collaborative robots and explain which safety standards to follow in the process

How Simulation Can Help Advance Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM), also popularly known as 3D printing, is a manufacturing technology that has been evolving since the late 1980s—but can finally be said to be proving its worth in many fields. Hardly a day goes by when you do not see an article in the news about a novel use of the technology in a variety of industries. But significant challenges still exist in the reliability and predictability of a number of AM processes that act as barriers to part certification and a much more widespread adoption in industry. This talk will discuss how simulation can help driving the adoption of Additive Manufacturing.
