Subcontracting Fair (Alihankintamessut) 2024

Tampere Exhibition Center / Tampereen messukeskus

Making Sense of Automation, Digitalization, and AI in Manufacturing

Fastems is the main partner of Alihankinta (Subcontracting) fair 2024! The exhibition takes place in Tampere exhibition Center during 1-3.10.2024. You can find us from the hall B.

As the main sponsor, our aim is to make sense of the discussion around manufacturing automation, digitalization and AI. There’s much inflation and hype around these keywords. The antidote for this problem is to connect the technical opportunities to daily manufacturing challenges.

To help you thinking, we’ve summarized five essential features of smart manufacturing below. The list might look plain and simple. For that reason it makes an important point: whatever  technology has to offer, needs to make sense in your production environment. To realize the value in novel technology, one needs to start from manufacturing goals. With the right direction and requirements, one can proceed in selecting the right tools, technologies and partners.

Key characteristics of intelligent manufacturing

  1. Production status information is always available and in active use
  2. People don’t do jobs that are more suited for automation (that often runs close to 24/7)
  3. Processes are reliable, yet capable of reacting to sudden changes
  4. Company culture and structure support continuous learning and improvement.
  5. Besides profits, the manufacturing business is also driven by customer satisfaction, employee engagement and environmental impact.


We invite you to discuss the above characteristics and how intelligent machine shop automation, digitalization and services can help! At our booth, you can get introduced with:

  • The latest CNC automation solutions via our Living Factory and control software MMS demos.
  • myFastems: our digital service platform for Fastems automation systems.
  • Our MES, Work Cell Operations (WCO), designed for machine shops. WCO manages work queues of standalone machines and/or connects stand-alone machines and processes into a larger automation system.
  • Our data-driven manufacturing platform Factory Cockpit, enabling situational awareness for non-automated machine shop operations
