Green energy and full digitization mean savings for companies' budgets. Foundry Goes Green seminar
Many foundry industry specialists participated in the Foundry Goes Green technical seminar held within the scope of the Metal exhibition at Targi Kielce. The talks about the benefits of full digitization and renewable energy sources were at the heart of the discussions. The presentation of Anna Dębowska from Luneos Polska on how much can be saved as a result of the energy transformation and why it is a strategic necessity for enterprises today attracted the attention of a wide audience. - A company can take advantage of a wide range of opportunities as part of the energy transformation. The full implementation leads to a complete transition to green energy, which generates enormous savings - she said. She offered the example of a company that installed the full Energy Transformation 360 package, including a heat pump, photovoltaics, cogeneration, and LED lighting. Thus the company saved PLN 28 million in 15 years. Complete digitization improves workflow and allows for quick decision-making processes, including the firm's finances.

Digital transformation of manufacturing companies discussed at METAL
Companies' development and strengthening market position depend on the implementation of digital transformation in a given company. This long-term process requires proper preparation; otherwise, digital transformation projects fail. "How to introduce an effective digital transformation in a production company? " - the seminar organized by the Enterprise Europe Network Centre at the Staropolska Chamber of Industry and Commerce was chaired by Michał Żelichowski, who emphasized that digital transformation is a necessity, but it can only be achieved in small steps. The insight into digital expansion was supplemented by a webinar "The industry of the future and the metal industry". The participants learned, inter alia, what is the industry of the future and whether the metal industry can be modern.
The autumn event, which brings together companies professionally involved in the metallurgical market, still welcomes exhibitors. The expo accompanying seminar can be an excellent opportunity to present modern solutions designed for the industry. The sessions offered an immense dose of practical knowledge.
The upcoming meeting of the metallurgical industry companies will be held at Targi Kielce in autumn 2024.
