Digitization is a topic that almost no one in the glass industry can avoid. For many companies that want to complete the digital transformation, however, the first question is where to start the digitization process. And what benefits will result from it?
The challenges facing the industry exist in many areas: whether it's a shortage of skilled workers, processes that don't interlock optimally, a high need for internal coordination, or increasing deadline and cost pressure. A holistic view of automated processes, machines, employees and products offers solutions for using existing resources more effectively and achieving a smoother flow of materials.
Artificial intelligence is also an important design approach for the future of automation in the glass industry. In the future, scalable solutions will be possible that can be flexibly adapted as required with regard to their environment and their application target.
