Carrara is proud to celebrate the first five years of the VALVEcampus Association of which it is a founding member.
VALVEcampus is an Italian association of manufacturers of industrial valves and components used in the Oil&Gas and Power Industries.
Founded in 2014, by five original promoting manufacturing companies, it has the aim to promote and share the technical culture of industrial valves technologies among all relevant stakeholders, highlighting the role of excellence and international presence of the Italian leading industries.
VALVEcampus gives the opportunity to share knowledge, experience and ideas with other leading industry professionals and organizations.
Responsible for the organization of the fair's technical events IVS - Industrial Valve Summit, VALVEcampus will continue to offer training sessions to all stakeholders with the introduction of an innovative knowledge sharing platform: IVS - VALVEcampus Knowledge Platform.
The main scope of this platform is to extend the IVS event and its contributions, with no time and physical boundaries, to become a permanent and growing knowledge tool, excellent and dynamic: “A continuous knowledge sharing platform for a successful future”.
Every market has its own peculiarities in order to meet the different requirements coming from Customers and Suppliers which depend primarily by a number of dominating factors, such as effective and real technological content, capacity to properly qualify values among clients, willingness of End Users to properly evaluate and accept qualities of products and services.
Digitalization is a typical example.
Processes covered by Industry 4.0 are affecting not only the manufacturing side but also the Oil & Gas extraction, production, treatment and distribution, particularly in the downstream sector where production data gathering - thanks to the increased use of sensors, included in valves and actuators – guarantees control optimizations and tangible production savings.
This trend, present already in the control valve sector, will shortly represent a new opportunity also for the designers and manufacturers of other valve types: Big Data Management will offer them a concrete and innovative way to improve their products’ offer.
Additionally, as markets are constantly and rapidly evolving, all stakeholders within their responsibilities, will face new challenges for their entire working force. We forecast increasing needs of continuous professional formative trainings and courses to allow the adoption of new opportunities, induced by emerging progress and technological accelerations.
With a good degree of foresight, already in 2006, the European Union introduced the “Life-long Learning Program” to endorse and sustain the education and formation essential, particularly for new generations which will form a basis for their professional growth and success.
