Experts gather for SPS Automation Middle East 2019
SPS Automation Middle East covers 14 product groups
SPS Automation Middle East, the regional exhibition for the automation industry, will showcase the latest in automation technology for the design, manufacturing and construction sectors
The show will run at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 3-4 September 2019.
“Visitors will get the keenest of insights into the region’s design houses, factories and construction sites of the future,” explained Andreas Rex, show director of SPS Automation Middle East, which is organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East.
SPS Automation Middle East covers 14 product groups including drive systems and components; mechanical infrastructure; sensor technology; control technology; IPCs; software & IT in manufacturing; interface technology and power supplies; low voltage switching devices; human-machine interface devices; industrial communication; building automation; future factory system integrators as well as training and consulting.
The show’s profile includes global digital and automation names from the USA, Europe, the Middle East and Sub-continent. “These are the guys in the vanguard of making Manufacturing 4.0 a reality,” explained Rex.
Italian industrial automation software provider PROGEA plans to use the show for the release of its SCADA Movicon.NExT enterprise-wide information software with features such as augmented reality through wearable devices.
Germany’s SICK Sensor Intelligence says they will live demo 2D & 3D vision, safety scanner and LiDAR sensors at the show. The market product manager Vikrant Kulkarni said the sensor technology will form the cornerstone of the region’s Manufacturing 4.0 development.
“Sensors no longer just ‘sense’. With the beginnings of digitisation, they are also starting to ‘think’. From this point onwards, the transmission of the produced information becomes a key technology. The success of networked value creation chains is heavily dependent on the successful integration of sensors in the overall architecture of an application.”
Running alongside the exhibition, the SPS Automation Middle East Conference will include 28 sessions and more than 30 expert speakers who will provide over 20 hours of learning.
