Conference organized by CETIM - Workshop area B1


How can we implement concrete solutions with extremely short payback times? Essentially, it's a matter of significantly reducing machining center energy consumption by detecting and reducing periods of non-production, and making the most of standby or shutdown modes without impacting production. Come and discover how, without investment, it is possible to make substantial energy savings by reducing your energy impact on all machining center consumption items. 


4pm-5pm : How to develop your commitment to an activity ?

Conference organized by Robin GAILLARDET - Auditorium


Robin Gaillardet's ambition is to encourage as many people as possible to take part in physical and sporting activities in the great outdoors. To this end, he has set up Origine, a company based in Annecy. At SIMODEC, he will discuss the complex balance between DOING and BEING, the reasons for engaging in an activity, accepting constraints, taking on new challenges, finding one's "place"... Through the intermediary of his ultra trail world, and thanks to exchanges with several industrialists, he will draw parallels with industrial technological innovation.
