Registration closes on 2 November 2018!

HBM Prenscia invites you to attend the 2018 HBM Prenscia Technology Day: Addressing Analysis Challenges in a Digitally Driven World.

This one-day event introduces some challenges and solutions for storing, analysing, and interpreting the ever-increasing quantities of data. Guest speakers representing a number of industries will present their solutions for understanding operational usage, managing and maintaining highly sensitive assets, and improving product design, durability, and reliability.

In addition, HBM Prenscia technical staff will share an in-depth look at solutions for ensuring the reliability and durability of welded structures, using web analysis to improve productivity, and predicting fatigue life of structures in a virtual environment.
