The Cimteq team are exhibiting at the IWCS 2019 Cable and Connectivity Symposium, which is taking place at the Charlotte Convention Centre in North Carolina next month (29 September – 2 October).  The company will also be part of the Symposium’s poster presentation, with a paper – ‘Applying Industry 4.0 to the Cable Factory Environment’ – prepared by Yufei Du, Cimteq’s Software Implementation Manager.

The presentation, based on Yufei’s paper, examines Industry 4.0 and explores its application to the cable industry at every level – from the shop floor through to product design, R&D, sales and finance – forms part of the wider conference.  In addition to the presentation at the symposium, accepted papers will be available in the symposium proceedings book and in the IWCS online archive.

IWCS is viewed as one of the premier events for exploring new technologies in cable and connectivity materials, products, processes and applications.  Delegates can explore the latest technologies within a symposium format and there is the opportunity to attend professional development courses with tutorials on basic and emerging technologies.  There will also be the chance to speak with leading industry suppliers at the exhibition and network with other industry professionals.
