Industry Guide Manufacturing, Processing, Finishing


Glass industry 4.0

Is digitalisation the magic word for a one hundred per cent optimisation of the glass value chain?
Fact is, in smart systems, the way to a high quality product can already be made more transparent and safer today through the data interlinking of the processes. By way of the constant exchange of data, machines can learn from mistakes and are able to avoid them in future. The production already keeps on improving during the process. In particular, thermally prestressed thin glass and functional glass demand exact technical specifications during production as well as constant quality controls. You can experience at glasstec, which technological innovations for manufacturing, processing and finishing of glass are available today and tomorrow, in order to be even smarter and more efficient.
