From November 11-13th, 2019, print technology leaders and industry professionals will be traveling to Kyoto, Japan for Think Smart Factory 2019 (TSF2019). The inaugural event will be sponsored by digital print vendors, software providers, and Standard Finishing System’s manufacturers Horizon and Hunkeler.
TSF2019 will be one of the most unique trade shows of its kind. In lieu of vendor booths, the 43,000 square foot show space will be transformed into a fully automated working factory from order entry to delivery. Every system in the hall will be connected via a digital workflow, and automatic transport and in-feeding and off-loading will be incorporated to demonstrate a true “smart factory”. Horizon’s solutions, which Standard distributes in North America, will be used for finishing processes.
During the 3-day show, attendees will also be able to sit in on live demonstrations, seminars, and panels from industry leaders, print vendors, and technology innovators.
“Innovation and automation are two of the biggest buzzwords in the industry at the moment,” says Don Dubuque, Director of Marketing at Standard. “Think Smart Factory 2019’s unique event truly captures the essence of both of those ideas. The event will be the perfect opportunity for those in the industry to see first-hand how technology innovation and end-to-end automation can transform a factory in real-time.”
