Industry 4.0 is gradually disrupting manufacturing as whole. It is creating unprecedented production and labor optimization, so manufacturers are creating parts and products more efficiently with less waste and downtime than ever before.

The result is a new industrial revolution - hence the namesake of the trend.

At the heart of this change lie a few key technologies. Sensors. Robots. Test and measurement. Machine-to-machine communication.

GlobalSpec and Rockwell Automation have put together four different roundtable events with experts in these areas. Participating standards organizations include CSA Group, AMT and ISA.

We are excited to share their knowledge and insights in a webinar format. Registrants who cannot attend the live date will be able to watch the sessions on-demand.

Register for the The Industry 4.0 Effect roundtable webinars.
