Producing effectively with a digital twin
Marcel de Klein, Technical Manager bij Cadmes
15 september 11:30-12:15

The demand for the production of small series will increase even more. Unfortunately, converting an automated production cell or line has a lot of impact. After all, production stops for a while. With a digital twin of the production environment, it is possible to do this in parallel. Advantages include more room for experimentation towards an optimal setting, simulation options for training and safety and, above all, a more optimal use of valuable production resources. The lecture takes a closer look at different ways in which a digital twin of a production process can be approached and what this can look like in a virtual environment.

Single piece production at the cost of series production

How do you remove barriers to single piece production
Many entrepreneurs and employees still have the prejudice that you have to produce large series to be able to work cost-effectively. While this was often true in the time of mass production, it is no longer necessary in today’s time. Unnecessarily large series are still being created and products that are not yet required are then put in stock. Modern machines and techniques, combined with smart organization, make single-piece production possible at the cost of series production. To achieve this, a different way of working is needed. During this lecture, the most important points of attention will be discussed and you will be inspired to get started with these yourself.

Eliminating actions that don’t add value

By working specifically on eliminating such activities that do not add value, productivity can be significantly improved.
The current use of paper in your organization is often an indication of non-value adding actions. By looking specifically at the use of paper in the company, these activities that do not add value come into the picture, after which they can be eliminated in a targeted manner. During this lecture, tools are offered to get a grip on this.

Your customers demand flexibility: series are becoming smaller, manufacturing technologies are changing, delivery times are shortening and the professionals are increasingly difficult to find.
The daily challenge of connecting all the lines in the production ensures that the people in particular are busy and the spindle actually runs about 30%.
Cellro wants to take inventive entrepreneurs into the new world. Acting in your production at a quarter to twelve instead of noticing at a quarter past twelve.
Real-time insights and access to production data relieve your operator when planning and organizing production. Not of one piece, not of a series, but dozens of series in a row, unmanned.
Essential for those who want to increase production capacity and turnover with the same people and resources. Cellro offers unique tools to help you start today and be prepared for the future.

Innovative entrepreneurs want to start today and often have already started. They show vision and courage, you want to know that you are taking the right steps to robotize, digitize and integrate your production.

The road to fast and profitable robotization
Many companies are interested in the possibilities of robotization of their production process. In order to successfully robotize, it is very important to approach the robotization process in a structured and step-by-step manner. If one invests in a robot without first taking the right steps, the robot will yield less than would be possible.
During this lecture you will gain insight into how you can go through the 8 steps from the ‘Practical and profitable robotization for industrial SMEs’ step-by-step plan in order to arrive at a fast and profitable robotization solution.

Artificial Intelligent

17 september 11:30-12:15

What is artificial intelligence and what can industrial SMEs do with it?
Research institutes, large high-tech companies and professional literature have paid a lot of attention in recent years to the unprecedented possibilities of artificial intelligence. On the one hand, this creates the impression that every company must thoroughly delve into the possibilities of artificial intelligence. On the other hand, the impression is created that smaller industrial suppliers in particular cannot make use of the possibilities of artificial intelligence. The reality, however, is much more nuanced.
During this lecture you will gain insight into what artificial intelligence really is and what you can do with it as an industrial SME.
