Peer–to–Peer Network Forum
Advancing Industry 4.0 Solutions
Peer-to-Peer Network is an invite-only forum for Indiana manufacturers and logistics companies to share knowledge and best practices about the advanced technology they have utilized or are considering. Our hope is that when stakeholders learn about technology among engaged and informed peers, it will drive greater adoption of these technologies.
We assemble a vetted peer network (i.e., no sales or business development interests) and host each 90-minute session. Sessions usually consist of one or two companies presenting about how they are using an Industry 4.0 technology, followed by a group discussion where peers can share experiences, thoughts, questions, successes, and challenges.
AR/VR/MR In Manufacturing
Conexus Indiana hosted a Peer-to-Peer Network Forum to explore emerging use cases in manufacturing and logistics for augmented-, mixed-, and virtual reality. Samtec and Rolls-Royce provided insights into their journeys with these technologies, sharing specific examples in electrical connector manufacturing and aerospace and defense.
Emerging Technology Due Diligence
Conexus Indiana and Heartland Ventures held a Peer-to-Peer Network Forum to explore and collect feedback on a collaborative approach to providing Indiana advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML) firms with enhanced knowledge, influence and access to emerging technologies in Industry 4.0.
Cummins and Praxair Surface Technologies led a discussion on March 30, 2021, during Conexus Indiana’s Peer-to-Peer Network forum on the topic of additive manufacturing. Peer participants representing six organizations contributed to the dialogue, which resulted in a number of key learnings and insights on the complexity, costs and human resources needed for success.
A group of attendees representing five organizations participated in a conversation hosted by manufacturer Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies. The conversation opened with Freudenberg’s recent purchase of a 3D printer for prototyping purposes and their interest in exploring 3D printing as a resource for tool making. The discussion covered a broad scope and scale of additive related topics.
