Factory of the Future at a Glance

Factor participates in the XXIII Advanced Manufacturing Congress.

A few days after the XXIII Advanced Manufacturing Congress, masterfully organized by AFM Cluster and held from October 25 to 27 at the Science and Technology Park of Guipúzkoa, it is time to take stock of what we experienced there.

The Congress brought together brilliant minds and industry leaders to reflect on the future of manufacturing and the disruptive technologies that will shape it. Figures such as Iñaki Gabilondo and Pedro Echenique inspired us with their vision. Exciting topics were explored, from 5G to robotics and sustainability, with speakers from leading companies such as IE Business School, Microsoft, Teléfonica, IBM and Siemens, among others.

The second day was equally exciting, with examples of success in additive technology and discussions on the challenges of strategic sectors such as aeronautics, rail, automotive, energy and defense.

At the close of the congress, we highlighted two elements that we believe are crucial for the future of advanced manufacturing: sustainability and talent management. We learned from the best practices of companies such as Fagor, Ihobe, Airbus and Nidec Arisa. In addition, leaders in people management, such as Lantek, Nidec Arisa and MIK, shared strategies for attracting young talent to their organizations. And Xavier Marcet closed the congress by highlighting the importance of leadership as a catalyst for this talent.

The Congress is undoubtedly a must for all companies looking for a roadmap on strategy, technology and people management for the factories of the 21st century.

Are you ready for the future of advanced manufacturing?
