Round table: "The future of manufacturing".

In collaboration with IBARMIA, Borja Rodrigo (CEO of RINGSPANN Ibérica) brings together 5 guests to talk about innovations in manufacturing, future trends (new systems, materials, sustainability, communication, flexibility, ...) and robotics.

Jose Castellanos, Managing Director of SMARTPM shares our vision of the factory of the future, the technologies available today and the expected returns in companies. Together with him, four other luxury guests from the field of robotics, additive manufacturing and other activities related to machine tools: Arrate Olaiz, Director of Innovation at Ibarmia; Eleazar Raya, Dtor. Business Development at Ibarmia; Iñaki Goitia, Project Engineer at Bosch Rexroth; and Mikel Niño, Head of Smart Manufacturing Strategy at Tecnalia.

✔ You will enjoy listening to a natural and transparent talk with interesting views on manufacturing.

Some questions that arise:

  • What are machine tool customers demanding today?
  • Is the end user willing to pay more for machines that are more efficient?
  • The technology already exists. How to explain it? How to take the first step? What profiles are needed?
  • Where are industrial companies evolving towards? What technological solutions can we provide?
  • Augmented reality to avoid machine errors and downtime?
  • What telediagnostic solutions are being implemented for preventive maintenance and failure prediction?
  • What influence can robotics and automation have on the future of employment?
  • Do we have a good education system to guarantee us the imminent digital transformation of industries?

The discussion "The new industrial revolution" was broadcasted live from IBARMIA's stand at the Bilbao Machine Tool Biennial 2022, the most important national machine tool event.
