RINC 2019, themed, “Connected Solutions for a Smart Factory in AM”, will be held on 6 Nov 2019. The Regional Industry Networking Conference (RINC) is an iconic industry conference organised by the Singapore Polytechnic since 2002. In this conference, local and regional participants are provided with a platform to discuss trends, developments and innovative solutions in various areas of engineering technologies. Offered also as part of SP’s contribution to our nation’s life-long learning initiative, RINC has been well-received over the years by more than 4800 delegates. One of SP’s current areas of focus is Advanced Manufacturing (AM) and its solutions for industry. RINC2019 will look at the connectivity issues in a factory and the solutions available for the factory to become “Smart” and more productive. The conference will also be discussing the workflow design and essential equipment required for a Smart factory. It also aims to encourage the adoption of AM technologies required to upgrade enterprises in the local industry to meet the global i4.0 standards. A number of distinguished speakers who are leading the technology domains and solutions implemented in a smart factory, have been lined up to share their expertise and experience gained through applications and case studies. A “first” in the history of RINC is the special Learning Journey programme this year. Aimed to enhance participants’ understanding of the AM platforms and technologies, the Learning Journey programme provides participants an opportunity to visit a company that will demonstrate relevant technologies in the connectivity solutions mentioned in the conference.
