27 October 2020: Get ready for Digital Manufacturing

The rising rate of Corona infections has made us worry in the last days. Now it is certain: Due to the negative development of the corona incidence rates, the GrindTec cannot be carried out in November this year.

We are sad about it. We have been looking forward to finally see each other again. However, the reason for it is 100% Plausible. In the first place, we now have to Protect the people around us and ourselves and thus help to contain the Corona Pandemic as good as possible.

Cheer up!

No reason for us to stick our heads in the sand: We from ISBE take it now more than ever as a reason to push your business towards Digital Manufacturing and so prepare you for the current time and for the Future. Because this is exactly what is demanded of us now!

Digital Manufacturing now!

Be excited about a Revival of our Web Seminars and many more Digital Surprises! We show you how Digitization is possible in your company. Are you ready for it?
