HoskeSmart manufacturing and its implications for production environments will be the focal point of The Center for Trends and Technology (CTT) at Pack Expo Las Vegas and Pharma Expo 2015 at Las Vegas from Sept. 28-30. The booth, exclusive to Pack Expo, uses educational sessions, ask-the-expert kiosks and informational displays to present technologies for serialization, machinery safety, mobility, cloud computing, networking security, line integration, and line optimization. Attendees can also request a tour of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) booths where they can see the CTT technologies in action.

"CTT is a one-stop-shop for understanding issues surrounding smart manufacturing," said Rockwell Automation commercial program manager Cheryl Lange. "We want attendees to leave our exhibit with the understanding and insights they need to consider how they'll implement the Internet of Things in their plants."
