Quantillion was present at TMS2019 and talked about autonomous process optimization for the light metal industry.
San Antonio (TX, USA) was the stage for the 148th Annual Meeting & Exhibition of the global minerals, metals, and materials community, where the latest developments in the industry are discussed.
Of course, one of the hot topics was Industry 4.0 and multiple test cases, examples and developments where shared.
We have shared our views on the difference between automation and ‘autonomation’, the importance and principles of information security in an increasingly interconnected IoT-ecosystem. Furthermore, we have explored several use cases for automation in core smelter operations.
We enjoyed thoroughly the very interesting discussions and lectures of the main conference. In particular, we are very happy about the informal and personal meetings – and the occassional beer – with so many open-minded people who are pushing the industry forward!
