The focus on Toolmaking Day was devoted to networking - both with B2B meetings and a mini tool fair. The latter enabled companies not only to connect with potential partners, but also to enhance the meeting with presentations of their products to easily provide for the finding of mutual challenges.
The professional focus of the meeting was again given to Industry 4.0, illustrating practical application of it into companies. In his presentation, Paul Peeters (AGORIA, Belgium) gave a simulated view of what companies could achieve with the introduction of Industry 4.0 in his lecture Transforming Companies into Future Factories. “The discussion about the Slovenian experience and examples of good practices continued at the round table, where we focused on the personnel aspect of the introduction of Industry 4.0. With very specific guidance and advice, we advised participants on how to achieve optimum personnel performance and make employees satisfied with their work and achievements," concluded TECOS Director Dr. Aleš Hančič, at the end of Toolmaking Day 2019..
After the meeting, we will also visit two companies in Škofja Loka: LTH Castings - Trata Tool Shop and POLYCOM Škofja Loka. The event successfully brought together members of SRIP ACS +, SRIP ToP and members of the TECOS toolmaking association and companies from the Slovenian-Austrian association Advantage Austria Ljubljana, Slovenian and German members of the Slovenian-German Chamber of Commerce in Ljubljana and members of the Technology Park Ljubljana.
We would like to thank all participants for co-creating a successful event, which gets better and better year. We invite you to join us again next year!
