Smart Measurements - Humidity Parameters Explained.
30 mins
In addition to relative humidity, there are other humidity parameters, such as dew point, ppm, absolute humidity, wet bulb temperature, enthalpy…
What is the theory behind these terms, how to choose the most relevant? How can I take advantage of it, in my industry, my application?
During this 30 min presentation, we will go over the theory of humidity and the different measurement parameters as well as practical examples to optimize your process, reduce energy consumption and improve quality.

10:30 a.m.

How to define and express your need correctly for a measuring device.
30 mins
“In industry, needing a measuring device is common. But correctly defining your needs and expectations is much less so. The various commercial proposals reflect this.
In order to obtain suitable technical solutions from your various suppliers, we will approach the key stages to correctly express your needs. »


Do you have problems with fouling, corrosion or foam formation in your processes?
30 mins
We know that some of your processes do not necessarily behave as expected and that certain events can lead to unexpected production stoppages. This is for example the case of the formation of deposits which can lead to clogging, or of corrosion which can lead to deterioration of the pipes. Foaming can also be dangerous if the level is not measured correctly.
Today, measuring devices such as flowmeters, level or pressure sensors bring you much more than a simple measurement and make it possible to highlight these phenomena.

11:30 a.m.

Hyperspectral, polarization, hypercentric… Alternative solutions when classic industrial vision is no longer enough.
30 mins
Classic industrial vision (machine vision) has undergone changes in recent years: the use of faster, more sensitive cameras, associated with image processing and artificial intelligence algorithms. The use of these technologies around conventional vision cameras has made it possible to access more advanced and automated diagnostics. However, some industrial problems still do not find their solution on the shelf, even with these techniques.
New camera technologies and specialized optics, such as hyperspectral imaging, polarized cameras or even hypercentric optics, have already been industrialized and make it possible to meet other production or control challenges. Through examples in the pharmaceutical, automotive and food industries, we will show you that we can go very far in solving what still seemed insoluble with conventional equipment.

12:00 p.m.

 Cybersecurity of industrial systems and the need for OT / IT reconciliation.
30 mins
We see it every day, it is difficult for an industrial system to remain completely isolated from the rest of the world. However, we find this isolation in the recommendations and directives for securing industrial systems of the ANSSI or in the IEC 62443 standard.
Historically, industrial systems were not designed to be interconnected with corporate IT systems.
So why ultimately want to interconnect these industrial systems?
Always seeking to optimize production costs and maintain their competitiveness, our industries seek to reduce teams and standardize technologies.
Current IT needs thus appear today in OT: remote access for remote management, remote maintenance, centralization of authentication directories, time server, update, access from one's office workstation, nomadic access or even tablet / smartphone, etc. Whether IT departments or industrial services, there is a strong demand for the interconnection of all IT systems in a company.
What are the new risks in global digital security?
Systems with different security needs (confidentiality in IT; availability and integrity in OT) face increased exposure to ever more active threats.
How to interconnect these environments while maintaining an acceptable level of risk?
We will discuss the different solutions depending on the use cases: Firewall, Data diode, security gateway, DMZ, network probe, VPN, multi-factor authentication, etc. These solutions, sometimes generalized in IT environments, must be carefully chosen and suitable for integration into OT environments without degrading operations.
We will present ideas, recommendations and solutions to reduce the attack surface while keeping the benefits of this necessary OT / IT interconnection.

The QbD / PAT / Modeling & Capability approach: To understand, optimize & control your industrial processes: Concrete cases in pharma & chemistry.
30 mins
The combination of the QbD approach combined with PAT to optimize your production processes The pharmaceutical industry is going through a period of intense transformation. There is a growing trend to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Process Analytical Technologies (PAT) in the production of drugs, with in particular a continuous acceleration of manufacturing processes. Based on this observation, it is useful to have a global strategy serving R&D, Industrialization and Pharmaceutical and Chemical Production.
Combine the pragmatic approach of "Quality by Design", to define the critical sources of process variability, with PAT (including NIR & RAMAN spectroscopy), to monitor, manage and improve processes to ensure that finished products are produced with the desired quality.
  • Implementation of a "Quality by Design" approach for the development and control of processes, from R & D to routine operations.
  • Implementation of effective process monitoring via PAT systems using NIR technology tools.
  • Assistance on control methods and their modifications so that they comply with EMA and FDA requirements.

3:00 p.m.

Micro and nano liquid flows: metrology at the service of health and innovation.
30 mins
In hospitals, the delivery of liquid medication by infusion is ubiquitous, from the most benign to the most serious pathologies.
But how can you be sure that the patient receives the desired dose?
Until 2012, the measurement of liquid micro-flows was very difficult to calibrate with sufficient accuracy.
Since 2012, CETIAT and a few other national reference laboratories have created calibration benches for liquid microflows, from one drop per second to one drop per minute.
But not all needs have yet been met: what about insulin pumps and other implanted devices, delivering drug flow rates that can be as low as a few nanoliters per minute, or one drop per week?
How to measure these minute flows accurately?
CETIAT within the framework of a European research project, will design and implement a new primary calibration bench (national standard) in liquid nano-flowmetry.
The applications in micro and nano-fluidics are numerous: medical and industrial, from pharmaceuticals to food and automotive, chemistry, etc.
Through its thematic presentation, CETIAT will present the challenges, current developments and perspectives of nano-fluidics, which are in full swing.

3:30 p.m.

Why use a camera as part of the automation of the control and verification process of thermometers by a temperature generator / calibrator?
30 mins
Verification of thermometers is a time-consuming action that requires entering data: significant time spent therefore cost of the service which is related to the time spent, manual entry therefore risk of errors.
Sika offers to address this topic and find solutions…

4:00 p.m.

Balancing rigid and flexible rotors: the key points to successfully reduce unbalance.
30 mins
From diagnosis to correction, including vibration measurement, the balancing steps must be managed methodically, using the right tools. Discover them during this presentation!

4:30 p.m.

Latest organizational responses to sustain your normative transition.
30 mins
But how could we have perceived, in 1937, that a simple Petri dish under the eye of a biologist, Karl Ludwig von Bertalanffy, was going to upset our understanding of humans and their relationship to their environment? Theorizing what he first called “open system”, he wrote it later under the name of “General Systems Theory” and is today considered as one of the founders of the systemic approach.
Conferences of Macy, school of Palo Alto, the consequences and the advances are multiple and that whatever the field of application.
However, there are still many gray areas and misunderstandings for organizations faced with the false simplicity of this approach.
How might this relate to an organization moving to a new normal?
It is appropriate today to take stock of the latest advances in the systemic approach and its applications, its organizational logic and its responses for your company, first and foremost, a real sustainability of your approach.

5:00 p.m.

 Calibration/characterization of Mems.
30 mins
“The use of 'low cost' MEMS-type sensors in so-called test and measurement applications is becoming more and more common. With performances that are similar to more conventional sensors, this legitimate enthusiasm raises new issues regarding the characterization and calibration of these new sensors. For several years, AllianTech has been studying these issues and offers you through this presentation to discuss some examples of the work carried out, in particular on accelerometers or MEMS pressure sensors. »
