The International Coil Winding Expo and Conference – Coiltech – was held in Pordenone, Italy from 23th to 24th of September 2015. This exhibition is one of the fastest growing events for the coil and winding industry. Consequently audience, guests and companies attended are from a type of industry, where optimization and development of the working place is a major topic.
The key message of the conference was that the industry has made first steps to make the working place more user friendly and effective at the same time. Even though FACTS4WORKERS is built upon the specific use cases of the industrial partners, the principles of working and the nature of operations performed there can be generalized to many other companies and also to coil and winding industry.
With presenting FACTS4WORKERS at the Coiltech, we got into a fruitful dialogue with representatives from other companies on the topic of worker-centric workplaces and work optimization. We raised the awareness for our activities in the project, which attracted the huge interest of the participants to which we talked too.
