Apprenticeships with a Modern Twist - Addressing the Skills Gap

Wednesday, September 27 from 2-3 pm

Conference Center

Ray Buxton, general manager of Mazak Corporation Canada, will participate in a panel discussion on the role of modern apprenticeships in developing a new generation of workers to close the skills gap. The panel will explore how companies and associations are engaging their local municipalities and government to build a pipeline and leverage apprenticeships, external funding and other external partners to address their workforce requirements. A mechanical engineer, Ray began his career 44 years ago with an apprenticeship in aerospace prototyping and R& D in the UK.


Smart Manufacturing Hub - Roadmap for IIoT

Daily, Time: TBD

Building on SME’s new magazine, Smart Manufacturing, the Smart Manufacturing Hub is a dynamic area featuring advanced manufacturing technologies like automation, advanced materials, additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), 3D scanning and more. Insightful technical presentations combined with resources from leading technology providers will bring attendees up to speed quickly on developments in this rapidly changing field.

Neil Desrosiers, Mazak Corporation Application Engineer, will provide a “Roadmap for IIoT” at the Smart Manufacturing Hub. Below is a short summary of Neil’s discussion.

So, we have all decided that factory data is now mission critical. And, to harvest this data, you need to make your legacy equipment first class citizens on your secure network. You’re looking for a way to enable today’s use cases and yet not restrict future projects. Intellectual property and DFARS compliance is haunting you as you read about factories being held ransom. You need an open, royalty free way to meet your IIOT / Industry 4.0 needs. Mazak, in collaboration with Cisco, has laid out a roadmap for the future.

Join Neil at Smart Manufacturing Hub to learn more about how to safely and securely take your shop to the next level. Neil will be presenting on a rotating schedule each day during CMTS. 

Schedule subject to change.
