The event focused on new production technologies based on the digital evolution and Industry 4.0 concepts to which companies in our industry have shown commitment in recent years.

Hundreds of industry professionals have flocked to the Hub to experience for themselves the immersive augmented reality wearing the SCM-designed smart glasses, which allow SCM service technicians to offer remote and interactive assistance to customers. A thousand visitors havee attended demonstrations of SCM software applications (in Italian, English and German). And a preview of an IoT (Internet of Things) network has been a major success during this three-day event among representatives of companies that seek to adopt the "Factory 4.0" principles.
