The composite industry has been experiencing a recent increase in demand, but global challenges such as supply chain disruptions and workforce shortages are still holding back. Industry 4.0 solutions based on AI and IIoT technologies are widely addressed and discussed as important tools to helping factories meet production targets, increase productivity, and reduce waste of carbon fiber materials. But how can companies, especially SME, get in touch with these technologies and make the first steps towards the described benefits they have to offer?

During this Innovation Day, you will learn about:

  • The first steps of implementing AI and IIoT technologies at your factory
  • The latest innovations and advancements in data collection, connectivity of data processes and AI for subsequent data analysis
  • How can Industry 4.0 solutions provide a significant contribution to lowering the carbon footprint, leading to higher factory sustainability and circularity.


Besides the interesting content, highlights of the event are a nice evening event with good food and networking as well as a visit of the production site of the A350 upper wing cover, the largest flying CFRP part.

The event will take place in English.
