Industry 4.0 Summit 2017: Software solutions for the Smart Factory

At the Industry 4.0 Summit, 4-5 April, we will be showcasing our Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology and Smart Factory solutions. The conference will be held at the Manchester Convention Centre and will run parallel to the Factories of the Future Expo where you can find us at booth R35. Alongside an exhibition of the latest technologies and services available for the smart factory, the summit includes a series of seminars from industry experts.

Visitors to our booth will get to see the technologies and functionality within zenon that support smart infrastructures and factories throughout the world.


By combining zenon and Microsoft Azure, many of our customers have been able to realise the full potential of their production. Our success in the smart grid and smart city fields has enabled us to win the 2016 Microsoft Partner award for the ‘Public Sector: Microsoft CityNext’ category, recognising COPA-DATA as prolific figure in Industry 4.0.


Our customers will already be familiar with zenon’s strength in open and reliable communication for heterogeneous production facilities, at the exhibition, we will demonstrate to visitors how existing projects in zenon are highly scalable, allowing for continuous implementation of the Industrial IoT and the Smart Factory.


“The ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ and ‘Industry 4.0’ are two terms that are increasingly used in industry discussions, specialist trade publications and the mainstream media,” explains Martyn Williams, Managing Director of COPA-DATA UK. “However, many organisations are yet to realise the full potential of connected technology both inside and outside of the factory walls.


“Traditionally, operational technology and information technology function in isolated systems, but with the introduction of innovative, affordable and scalable technologies, there is an increased level of connectivity on the factory floor, meaning that these technologies are converging. At the summit, COPA-DATA will demonstrate how manufacturers can embrace these technologies using our intelligent automation platform, zenon.”


The exhibition will be attended by manufacturing professionals from across the UK and Europe, register your interest on the Industry 4.0 Summit website, below, and come and see what the world of zenon has to offer -
