Aluminum: 4 industrial Revolution


From 8 by 9 May 2018 in the Italian city of Milan will host the International Forum Future Aluminium - FUTURE ALUMINIUM FORUME. This forum is dedicated to the introduction of the aluminum industry in the concept of "Industry 4.0" - the concept of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Our site is the official media partner of the Forum.


What is the Industry 4.0

The fourth industrial revolution - the predicted mass introduction kiberfizicheskih systems in industrial production. commonly used term to refer to this concept Industry 4.0. In Russian is most commonly used expression of Industry 4.0, and Industry 4.0. The fourth industrial revolution is objectively caused by economic expediency and the desire for better quality of life. At the same time, it can carry a certain social problems, that have to be addressed.

The fourth industrial revolution is a continuation of the previous three industrial revolutions:

  • First Industrial Revolution (late 18th century): machine production based on the steam engine
  • Second industrial revolution (early 20th century): mass production of machines based on electrical energy
  • Third Industrial Revolution (1970s): Automation of Manufacturing with Electronics and Information Technology.

by Industry Conference 4.0 Forum on the Future Aluminium

As part of the Future Aluminium Forum conference to be held, where speakers from academia, as well as leading experts and managers of the largest companies of the aluminum industry, innovative companies, and IT-companies will explain the key points of the theory and practice of the concept of implementation Industry 4.0 in aluminum production.
