Industry 4.0: glasstec 2018 shows the trends

Smart glass, intelligent processes:
Secure first-hand knowledge at first hand


Industry 4.0 has made its way into glasstec 2018 through digitisation and networking along the entire value chain. It is not only the material glass that is becoming smarter and smarter as a result of new properties. The fourth industrial revolution is also currently taking place in the glass industry as well as in processing and finishing.

The so-called "Smart Factories" play a central role here, intelligent factories in which work processes are supported or even completely taken over by digital technologies. This topic is trend-setting and therefore also an important focus of glasstec 2018: for exhibitors and the supporting programme.

For example, the VDMA conference "Cross-linked production and new technologies" on Wednesday, 24 October, will be dominated by Industry 4.0. Renowned experts from German and international companies will be available for free presentations in Hall 10/C18-F18. For example, Roland Jenning from Grenzebach Maschinenbau GmbH will give a lecture on "Automation 4.0 in the world of glass". Thomas Fehringer and Hannes Pils from LiSEC Austria will show "Digitalization in practical application" using the example of a LiSEC service in the entire life cycle of a flat glass processing plant.
