In order to make packaging line operations better, faster and more efficient, key players in the Industry 4.0 movement have to commit to innovation by creating Smart Factories where computerised systems can be used to design, simulate, monitor and safeguard physical processes, said Gebo Cermex.
The Factory of the Future is the latest addition to this, and the company now rolls out a portfolio of 4.0 solutions.
Described as innovative, intuitive and fully integrated with the company’s existing industrial and design processes, the tools are:
- 3D Scan – the most accurate field survey of an existing environment to perfectly secure supply fits, according to Gebo Cermex
- Virtual Reality Simulation – to visualise new installations with immersive 360° models
- Energy Simulation – to assess or forecast consumption and emissions
- Remote video technical support service – taking assistance up to the Factory of the Future level with the exclusive addition of Augmented Reality technology.
As the packaging industry continues to evolve and accelerate, there is currently a strong need in industry for firms to commit to creating value for clients. With this in mind, Gebo Cermex is aiming to provide 360° solutions which boost productivity while driving down operational expenditure (OPEX) and total cost of ownership.
Jean-Claude Waeldin, advanced production system manager at Gebo Cermex, said: “Simulation is one of the keys to cost control. Our clients require the ability to both visualise and forecast, so that they make all the right decisions and thus keep their OPEX to an absolute minimum. Our simulation solutions have been devised to meet that need.”
