Industry 4.0, digital glassmaking and smart manufacturing have become established talking points in the glass sector in recent years. The Future Glass Forum focused in the aplication of Industry 4.0 with an emphasis on glassmaking and the digitalisation of the hot and cold ends.
Speakers focused on each of the glassmaking processes such as furnaces, forming and inspection and discuss the benefits digitalisation has to glass manufacturers.
The Glassman Conference, organised in partnership with the Brazilian Glass Commission, addressed the latest trends in glassmaking with high-level speakers. The conference ran alongside the exhibition and gave an inside perspective of the Brazilian approach to the glass industry's progress.
