Europe’s largest container glass manufacturers attended the Glassman Europe event in Lyon, France last week.
Renowned container glass manufacturers such as O-I, Verallia, and Ardagh were in attendance at the combined exhibition and conference which took place on September 6 and 7.
The European manufacturers were joined by visitors from glassmaking facilities around the world, including Siam Glass in Thailand, Nihon Yamamura Glass from Japan, Turkey’s Sisecam and Vical from Costa Rica.
Companies among the 831 visitors to the event included BA Glass from Portugal, Vidrala from Spain, Stoelzle from sites across Europe, Wiegand Glass from Germany, Steklarna Hrastnik of Slovenia, Anheuser-Busch InBEV from Belgium, Kuwait’s Gulf Glass Manufacturing, Bormioli Rocco of Italy and Gurallar Glass Packaging from Turkey.
Glassman Europe will be held again in Lyon in this September following the success of the event in 2015. This niche event brings together international experts, glass container manufacturers and businesses that use glass containers to discover the latest innovations which include energy efficiency, quality control, packaging, logistics and decorative possibilities.
For the first time, the 2017 event will also feature a fringe programme of event with a new Future Glass Forum looking at how Industry 4.0 can be applied to the Glass Industry. The free-to-attend programme will be relevant to both flat and hollow glass manufacturers and suppliers and will encompass many subjects including Big Data, the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and Cyber Security.
There will also be a FEVE Policy and Environment Meeting and a Glass Service training course running as part of the fringe programme.
The inaugural Future Steel Forum, Steel Times International’s first (and highly successful) foray into the world of Industry 4.0 and steel manufacturing took place on 14-15 June 2017 at the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel in Poland.
Delegates and speakers met to discuss an increasingly important aspect of the steel manufacturing process, that of digitalisation, ‘smart’ production, however you wish to describe it. It was good to hear that delegates enjoyed the conference and that they felt an event on the subject of Industry 4.0 was long overdue – especially an event focused on steel.
