At the International Conference on Training in the Industrial Sector and Digitalization on September 13, speakers from Bulgaria and abroad will present their visions and ideas.
The exhibition occupies 10,000 square meters, uniting two areas - MachTech and InnoTech. MachTech features metal cutting and machining, machine design and heat treatment and welding, laser technology, hydraulics and pneumatics. InnoTech focuses on software and industrial networks, 3D technologies, automation systems, electronics, robotics and design.
Adaptive robots are "present" in the halls to optimize internal logistics. Collaborative robots demonstrate their ability to work in harsh manufacturing environments. Robotic specialists show trends in welding, and 3D technologies demonstrate their advantages for creating functional solutions for electronic components, mechanical engineering, digital dentistry, education and more. Health protection and a healthy working environment, industrial aspiration, CNC metalworking machines, latest generation engines, etc. are also an emphasis.
Education is the focus of the International Conference
An international conference prepared jointly by the Bulgarian Chamber of Industry - Mechanical Engineering and the Inter Expo Center focuses on staffing.
The international conference "New skills and requirements in the education and qualification of personnel in the conditions of the digitization of companies from the engineering sector" gathers speakers from the country and abroad. Isabelle Sobrino Mate - Senior Policy Advisor at CEEMET, the largest employers' organization for companies in the metal, engineering and technology industries, starts. Eng.
