Over the last decade, the evolution of the Internet of Things, Big Data and the desire for ever-increasing productivity has driven the smart manufacturing movement. The growing need for education, alongside increased offerings and adoption, has provided us with the opportunity to lead the discussion on the future of making things. We have developed a dynamic area on the show floor to showcase the industry’s most advanced smart technologies: the Smart Manufacturing Hub. The Smart Manufacturing Hub will feature several advanced manufacturing technologies, including automation, advanced materials, 3D printing, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), 3D scanning, and more. Technical presentations from industry-leading smart technology providers will provide insight on recent developments in this rapidly evolving field.
