THE VIRTUAL FACTORY
A mix of legacy and start-up companies, the simulated factory is the “show” part of the Tell & Show format of MT360. The simulated factory floor is where you will go to see hands-on demonstrations of the technologies being presented in the Tech Theater. This is where the four foundational product categories of MT360 – Additive Manufacturing, Cognitive Automation/AI, Digital Thread, and AR/VR – come to life.
