SMC to host its Dynamic Technology Show in Auckland
SMC is hosting a Dynamic Technology Show at its offices in Auckland on 26 February.
Peter Wilson, Auckland Branch Manager, said that the event is a great platform to showcase SMC’s IIoT technologies, with 2020 set to be another big year for the automation industry.
“An increasing number of companies are now incorporating IoT and Industry 4.0 technologies into their systems and processes,” he said. “Pressing issues such as climate change and government regulations around health and safety require companies to continuously evolve. The need for smarter, safer, quieter products with a small environmental footprint is now critical.”
The Dynamic Technology Show is being presented as a platform for education and engagement around SMC technologies.
“SMC innovates and develops customer-centric solutions based on their feedback and business needs,” Wilson said. “SMC invests heavily into R&D globally and our head office in Japan relies on feedback from markets such as ours to develop new solutions.
“This event gives us the opportunity to connect with our customers, demonstrate our products and to answer any questions in an engaged environment.”
SMC will use this platform to showcase its latest IIoT technologies, and while the adoption rate in New Zealand has been slow to date, Wilson notes that things are picking up.
“I am particularly excited about our new range of wireless controlled manifolds. These have seen great success in the robotics industry thanks to improved reliability and weight reductions on robot heads.”
SMC will host workshops on the day to run customers through their range of online tools. The company has software available for sizing, valve configurators, CAD downloads, dryer sizing and energy saving among others.
“We treat our customers like our business partners; their success is our success,” Wilson said. “I’m excited to show customers our range of innovative products and the potential for more collaboration and closer relations with all stakeholders.”
The event takes place on 26 February 2020 at the SMC Auckland branch.
