OVERVIEW

In the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), the impact of smart technologies is changing the way manufacturing companies operate. Today, they must focus on creating agile, adaptive and intelligent processes enabling them to pivot and adapt to the constantly changing conditions and making manufacturing smarter and greener. 

The new Smart Manufacturing Zone at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC) bridges the gap between energy, manufacturing and high tech sectors to accelerate economic development and diversification. 

Co-located with ADIPEC, it is the ultimate platform for the manufacturing sector to engage with energy decision-makers, as well as leading manufacturers, intent on developing smart ecosystems, as they focus on building resilient, sustainable businesses and leveraging future growth opportunities. 

The Smart Manufacturing Zone invites buyers and sellers to meet, learn, network and discover new products, solutions and technologies from exhibitors across core event sectors, including Materials Management 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Supply Chain and Logistics, Computer-aided Manufacturing, and many more.

The Make it in the Emirates campaign is an open invitation to local and international investors and innovators to engage with MoIAT and to benefit from the UAE's exceptional value proposition of SMEs and entrepreneurship programs to fulfill their ambitions of developing, manufacturing and exporting their products from the UAE.

Event Core Sectors

MATERIALS MANAGEMENT 4.0

The materials sector is being rapidly digitised and interconnected through Industry 4.0. New materials are being adopted and 4IR technologies are being used in material management, handling, and processing.

INDUSTRIAL INTERNET OF THINGS (IIOT)

The Industrial Internet of Things is revolutionising many aspects of manufacturing operations. By taking networked sensors and intelligent devices and putting those technologies to use directly on the manufacturing floor, IIoT is making factories more efficient, safer and more cost-efficient.

SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS

In an era of Supply Chain 4.0, data optimisation using artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain across supply chains drives better efficiencies, better value and cost savings, and offers faster and leaner global logistics.

COMPUTER-AIDED MANUFACTURING

Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software is utilised to reduce the time required to design and prototype without reconfiguring or retooling the manufacturing line. CAM is now taking on a wider role in all operations of a manufacturing plant, including planning, management, transportation and storage.

INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL

Customisation of instrumentation and control systems, paired with evolving technologies, allows for turnkey, precise solutions that enhance efficiency, improve production or operations, and create long-term cost savings for owners and operators.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION, ROBOTICS AND LASERS

With the Middle East robotics market forecast to grow by $166.18 million between 2020 and 2024, robotics in industrial automation bridges traditional manufacturing with the latest smart technology, offering increased reliability, precision, consistency, and durability.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

The manufacturing sector is integrating sustainable materials and involving renewable energy sources into their processes to lessen the burden of waste on the planet and allow for the implementation of a circular economy.

NANOTECHNOLOGY

By leveraging the power of nanotechnology, the manufacturing sector will benefit from an almost infinite source of value-addition, in the form of strengthened performance of industrial products, retained at an atomic level.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Additive manufacturing such as 3D printing and rapid prototyping brings digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations by creating lighter and stronger parts and system.

MATERIAL INFORMATICS

By employing a data-driven approach for the design and discovery of materials, enhanced by principles of informatics, computational techniques, and machine learning and artificial intelligence, material informatics optimises the arrangement and modelling of materials data.

RESPONSIVE AND SMART MATERIALS

Advancements in materials science allow for creating smart materials and products with programmable properties and diverse qualities, from thermo-, electro-, and photochromism to piezoelectricity, shape memory, self-healing, and phase-change attributes, among other characteristics.

ADVANCED COMPOSITES

With the global advanced composites market projected to grow by $51.8 billion by 2027, manufacturers are continuing to innovate within resins, fibres, substrates, matrices, and finishes to build custom composites for improved performance and regulatory compliance and reducing cost.

SURFACE ENGINEERING

The process of modifying or coating the surface of a component to enhance and protect its properties has a vital role to play in modern manufacturing. Research and applications development is helping the industry meet the dual challenges of improving the performance characteristics and durability of components and address sustainability challenges.
