Successful PROFIdag in Veenendaal, the Netherlands
15 November 2017
On November 9th 2017, PROCENTEC participated at the PROFIdag in Veenendaal, the Netherlands. Members of PI Holland were present and more than 160 visitors were able to explore the latest industry trends and technological developments.
PROCENTEC was present with its own table top and our experts showed several of our innovative solutions for PROFIBUS, PROFINET and Industrial Ethernet. Due to the new location, a lot of fresh faces showed up, followed by interesting conversations about technological development, innovations and the services provided by PROCENTEC. At the same time, PROCENTEC’s experts were able to strengthen the relationships with LEONI, Festo and Weidmüller.
Industrial Automation students from the Avans University of Applied Sciences were present to show several pilot plant projects. PROCENTEC supported one of the groups by providing a PROCENTEC Atlas for their project. They used it to do a short demonstration, which showed the user friendliness of the PROCENTEC Atlas.
The event also included several workshops and lectures. PROCENTEC’s CTO Paulo Silva hosted one of the lectures and talked about the blind spot in predictive maintenance and asset management. He talked about how the growing complexity of systems asks for predictive maintenance in order to minimize downtime in production processes. His lecture was well received by more than 20 interested visitors.
