May’s Interwire exhibition in Atlanta may have drawn to a close but the conversation on innovative cable and wire manufacture has only amplified for key sponsor Cimteq.
There were a number of objectives for Cimteq’s support of this event:
- Sponsorship of the Georgia Tech visit: 40 lucky delegates were invited to join Cimteq to view the new Georgia Institute of Technology Advanced Manufacturing Pilot Facility (AMPF). This new joint research and development facility between Georgia Tech, Delta Airlines and Boeing showcases some incredible work on digital manufacturing
- Providing best practice on enabling innovative cable production as part of the Innovation Operations Panel
- Delivery of the Smart Factory presentation and how this evolution goes hand in hand with communication, continuous improvement and collaboration
- Live demonstrations of Cable Builder and CableMES on the Cimteq exhibition stand.
As Ali Shehab, Cimteq CEO describes, the biennial Interwire conference continues to be a not-to-be-missed event in the Cimteq calendar: “There are few events that allow such in-depth engagement with over 4,000 cable and wire manufacturers from across the globe. Our months of preparation never fail to pay off. Meeting inspiring people who are truly transforming technology gives me the same vigour for our work that I enjoyed some 20 years ago.
We thoroughly enjoyed contributing to the debate on the Smart Factory and it’s a topic we’re wholly committed to at Cimteq. So much so that we’ve created a resource and learning centre dedicated to companies looking for support in this area. We look forward to sharing more information on that and an exciting announcement on our work in China over the coming weeks.”
