Think Smart Factory 2019

November 11-13, Kyoto, Japan

The Think Smart Factory (TSF2019) event will be held in the beautiful and vibrant city of Kyoto, Japan, November 11-13, 2019. TSF2019 is sponsored by the Think Smart Factory consortium of print technology leaders, including digital print vendors, software providers, and Horizon and Hunkeler, whose feeding and finishing solutions Standard distributes in North America.  At this exciting event, every system in the hall will be connected via a digital workflow, automatic transport systems, and in-feeding and off-loading systems will be incorporated to demonstrate a fully automated Smart Factory operation. Within the 43,000 square feet of floor space, the end-to-end automated workflow will be demonstrated with a focus on improving efficiencies and reducing labor cost. Horizon’s solutions will be used for the finishing process and they will be connected from order entry to delivery.  A unique concept of this event is the elimination of individual vendor booths. The entire floor is presented as a working factory to show real Smart Factory concepts from order placement to shipping. During the 3 days vendors and customers will also participate in several different live presentations in the Think Smart Factory theatre, featuring input from technology leaders and print innovators from around the globe.
