Configit to Host 9th Annual Configuration Lifecycle Management Virtual Summit

Industry pros to explore best practices for orchestrating your product configuration data

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - April 30, 2024 - Configit, the global leader in Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM), today announced the company will hold its 9th annual Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) Virtual Summit on May 15 - 16, 2024. To register and see the full schedule, go here.


In today's economy, customers expect more than off-the-shelf products; they're increasingly seeking customized options that are configured to precisely meet their individual requirements. That's having a significant impact on how manufacturers operate and is driving them to seek out better ways to navigate these changes. In fact, Gartner, Inc. predicts that "by 2026, configuration life cycle management will transform 40% of manufacturers, reducing the amount of customer-specific engineering required to deliver products."1

The 2024 Configuration Lifecycle Management Summit will explore how the integration of product data across enterprises can streamline configuration procedures and enhance visibility across the value stream. Through the establishment of a shared source of truth, organizations can dismantle barriers between sales, service, engineering and manufacturing, fostering cross-functional collaboration based on shared data.

The event brings together over 300+ industry professionals to share insights with peers about how to effectively manage product complexity, leverage current tech stacks to make better-informed decisions and the impact AI/generative AI are having on manufacturing.

The first day of the summit will feature presentations from experts at NVIDIA, Premier Tech and PwC, sharing how their companies are using data to better drive innovation, sustainability and AI advancements. The second day will focus more on technology, with sessions led by experts exploring the importance of centralized configuration data management in supporting effective digital transformation efforts.

Johan Salenstedt, CEO, Configit, said: "As customer expectations and market requirements continue to evolve, it's clear that personalized solutions tailored to individual needs are paramount in today's market. To meet this demand, manufacturing organizations need to look for new ways to improve configuration processes, break down silos between departments, foster cross-functional collaboration and drive innovation. Our annual summit provides an opportunity for industry professionals to learn from their peers and share their own insights amid a rapidly changing landscape."

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
