SIR to present at Institute of Engineering and Technology Event
New Opportunities in Manufacturing: Developing a competitive and sustainable business through maintenance and remanufacture
Wednesday 25th January 1530 – 2000
Strathclyde Business School, 199 Cathedral Street, Glasgow
The IET proudly presents a unique collaboration between The Scottish Institute for Remanufacture (SIR) and the University of Sunderland’s AMAP showcasing the benefits of remanufacturing and effective maintenance in developing a sustainable business plan.
Proactive maintenance enables companies to perform maintenance based upon intelligence provided by preventive and predictive maintenance data. Peter Usher from Technip Umbilical will present the findings from the introduction of a number advanced maintenance tools and techniques which support autonomous maintenance and data collection techniques aimed at reducing operating costs and improving equipment availability.
The Scottish Institute for Remanufacture (SIR) along with IBM will showcase remanufacturing in action as part of the circular economy and highlight potential economic and environmental benefits available to companies.
Also attending the event will be Hexagon, a leading manufacturing solution specialist who combine technologies and ideas to enable closed loop manufacturing. They will be on hand to provide practical demonstrations of equipment including laser scanners and trackers that can boost productivity in manufacturing operations by identifying the right balance of speed, efficiency, cost and quality.
