Smart Manufacturing Week in 10 quotes

Here are 10 highlights of the 5th edition of the Smart Manufacturing Week, organised by Luxinnovation from 8 to 10 June 2022 at the Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg.

Gérard Zoller, CEO of Peintures Robin SA:

Are we ready to change our way of life? The transition will be slow, we won’t be able to change the world in 2 days…



Franz Fayot, Minister of the Economy:

More than ever, sustainability and competitiveness must go hand in hand. It is essential to think collaboratively about the manufacturing industry of tomorrow.



Andy Schmidt, Chief Community Officer at Seismic:

Put people and the planet at the very front of your product design. If you can see the opportunities, you can capitalise on them. If you are not doing it – others are. Your competitors will spot the potential and try to become disruptive.



Professor Olivier Vassart, CEO of Steligence, ArcelorMittal:

We need to calculate environmental impacts across the entire life cycle, meaning what happens before us and after us. We all have a role to play.




Regis Heyberger, COO at Molecular Plasma Group:

Sustainability in manufacturing comes from implementing industry 4.0 principles by design.




Kris Van Heurck and Bart Demaegdt at Siemens:

Data is the new oil, but the real difficulty is to valorise these data.




Joost van Oorschot, Founder & CEO of Maana Electric:

We need to reinvent manufacturing and produce as close as possible to the customer and the resources needed. This helps us overcome logistics hurdles and is a much more sustainable approach.




Guillaume Boisot, Head of Materials & ICME Center of Excellence et Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence:

Manufacturing design always starts with a material. There is no material innovation without centralised data.




Arnaud Lambert, Director – Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub at Luxinnovation:

The future is about collaborative and responsible automation.




Dr Maiya Shibasaki, Head of Corporate Sustainability at Siemens Healthineers:

All companies need to assess what areas they can influence in terms of sustainability and where they can play the biggest role, and develop their strategies accordingly.
