Such as recruitment and knowledge within the industry especially in equipment maintenance.

Industry 4.0

The MAT Foundry Group central support team presented on the latest developments within Industry 4.0 including the development of Norican’s Monitizer Discover at Eurac Poole and the powerful live data it displays or the virtual training that can be provided by ABP.

Sustainability

Which was a hot topic of conversation across the three days, with detailed discussions on how we measure our carbon footprint, our commitment to carbon reduction and pending commitment to Science Based Targets. The sand reclamation project at Eurac Poole was also reviewed in detail including a plant too of the facility as this project can reduce the use of virgin materials such as sand, resin and catalyst whilst also reducing waste disposal and transport emissions to and from the site.
