Cimteq were among the exhibitors showcasing their software products at the WAI's (Wire Association International) Interwire Trade Exposition 2017 held at the Georgia World Congress Centre, Georgia, Atlanta on 8-11th May 2017 , including the trade show, the Global Ferrous Rod & Cable Symposium, technical programmes and 87th Annual Convention.

A year in today's fast moving technological society is a long time. The cable industry is now starting to adopt the principles of Industry 4.0, or the "smart factory". Ali Shehab, CEO, Cimteq joined three other industry experts from Shoplogix, InnoVites and Oden Technologies, on Tuesday 9th May to share their expertise on Industry 4.0 in a panel discussion.

Ali Shehab, CEO at Cimteq comments: "This was a good opportunity for industry experts to share their expertise and opinions on Industry 4.0. It was positive to see that the panel discussion was very well attended with over 60 people. The panellist provided different interpretations of Industry 4.0 from their own outlook."

"There were lots of questions regarding the implementation of Industry 4.0, including concerns about deskilling the work force and the cost. Cimteq’s message was that although the cost of collecting and storing information had not significantly changed, the information has become much more valuable with the introduction of intelligent controls and the interconnectivity of systems. Industry 4.0 is not the future, it is here and yielding benefits by those that adopt its concept. It strengthens the idea of cooperation between systems. The principle is to leverage the strength of each supplier in the digital thread".

Cimteq exhibited its most advanced cable design software, CableBuilder, and its Manufacturing Execution System, CableMES.

Ali Shehab expands, "Cimteq has been exhibiting at Interwire for several years, Interwire 2017 is one of the most successful shows we have exhibited at in terms of referrals and the number of exhibitors. We were pleased to meet existing customers who told us how much CableBuilder continues to improve their design and quotation processes. They also recommended some improvements and new features which we have taken on board. So, look out for announcements in the near future. Our Manufacturing Execution System, CableMES, received very positive feedback, the combination of the modern platform, the simplicity and the powerful analytics and the scalability were the main desirable features. As always, the organisation of the show was superb and the key note speaker was inspirational with a dive into the world of 3D printing".
