Discovering a new vision on automation
Industry 4.0 Workshop
REGNER® EDITORIAL TEAM
In early 2020 we received an invitation to attend an event led by six companies in the field of Industry 4.0.
The aim of the workshop was to present technological advances – accompanied by real-world applications – in the areas of automation, digitalisation and industrial safety.
The event was to take place at La Fortalesa in Sant Julià de Ramis, which is less than ten kilometres from Girona.
In addition to our interest in the event itself, the location was an additional attraction, since La Fortalesa is an iconic site that amazes everyone who visits.
As well as being architecturally unique, the fortress houses a jewellery museum and an art gallery. It also has a large oval hall with a high vaulted ceiling for events. This large auditorium is where the series of lectures on the latest innovations in Industry 4.0 were to be take place.
On 20.02.2020, a REGNER® team made up of technical experts and engineers arrived at La Fortalesa hoping to gain a broader vision of the latest intelligent industry products and solutions.
The group of companies that exhibited their products for industry in the Girona region were:
- ESA AUTOMATION
- SEIS ADECUACIONES INDUSTRIALES
