Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technologies and methodologies are a growing area of interest amongst manufacturing businesses of all sizes. Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) typically have less finance and expertise amongst their existing workforce, than larger organisations, to introduce digital manufacturing technologies into their businesses and subsequently miss out on innovation and productivity opportunities.

These interactive webinars will provide an introduction to everything Digital Manufacturing and attendees will come away with a better understanding of the technologies, the opportunities they present, and how they can be implemented into businesses today.

The webinar is split over two days from 10am to 4pm each day on the following dates:

Friday 5th March 2021
