One of the industry's major talking points in recent months has been Industry 4.0. The term encompasses many subjects including Big Data, the Internet of Things and cloud computing. This free-to-attend programme will review how the glass manufacturing industry (flat and hollow) needs to adapt to the new industrial revolution and the opportunities for the future.
FEVE the Federation of European Container Glass Manufacturers, is once again participating in Glassman Europe. The organisation is hosting its Policy and Environment (P&E) meeting at the CCC Lyon, 6-7 September. All attendees are invited to also attend the exhibition and network with other attendees. This meeting is by invitation only.
The Czech Republic's Glass Service will host a condensed training event at the CCC in collaboration with Glassman Europe. This half day event will be entitled 'Glass defects and the possible sources, heat balance and benchmarking' and will be available at the reduced rate of €399 to Glassman visitors.
