Welcome to Digi Demo Day 2020

For the fourth year in a row, you are invited to an inspirational day on smart digital industry, this time with special theme: test beds for digitalised production systems. The focus is on challenges and opportunities of using digital tools to create competitive production of lightweight products with shorter lead times and reduced costs.

During the day, experts in sustainable production from research institutes, industry and research agencies give their view on digitalised production systems, from smart value chains to skills development and distance testing of lightweight structures in metal and composites.

Several industrial case studies will be presented. Among others, Christer Bäckdahl, AP&T och Thommy Rosberg, Ljungby Komposit will tell you on cost-efficient digitalisation of manufacturing.

Skills development through connected test beds

  • Circular material flows in lightweight products
  • Large-scale components with additive manufacturing
  • Hybrid joining test beds
  • Digitialisation of the value chain
