Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific: Asia Pacific new trade platform for Industry 4.0

The inaugural Industry 4.0 tradeshow, a Hannover Messe event, will take place in Singapore, Asia’s thriving hub for high value and advance manufacturing. The platform will bring together global industrial leaders and experts in support of the region’s manufacturing industry growth and transformative initiatives. Industry 4.0 unifies technologies such as advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, and data analytics to transform the manufacturing floor.

Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific is supported by government agencies that forms the steering committee, and strategic stakeholders of the industry to provide advice and guidance for the delivery and achievement of the strategic objectives set out for the event.

Singapore government has been driving and encouraging the manufacturing sector in Singapore to adopt Industry 4.0, which will help companies to address high costs, stagnant productivity and an ageing workforce in a slowing global economy. A*STAR, Singapore’s leading science and technology agency together with Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), the Economic Development Board (EDB) Singapore and SPRING Singapore, has initiated a Future of Manufacturing (FoM) to encourage Industry 4.0 adoption among Singapore manufacturing companies1.

Konica Minolta will be showcasing solutions that will bring forth new value to the manufacturing process within the supply chain through collaboration between robots and people, optimization of processes and preventive measures, leveraging artificial intelligence, big data and translating data into actionable insights with analysis and ease of sharing.
