Intelligent Manufacturing

We are immersed in the fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, which represents a challenge and a great opportunity for companies. With this revolution, among other things, companies must reach a state of advanced digitalization, which allows horizontal and vertical integration of processes.

All the information generated in the different stages of the chain from the design to the use of the product by the client is available not only in the generation stage itself, but in all of them. And not only at plant level, but also vertically crossed in business management systems. A paradigm shift that leaves isolated processes aside and focuses on a concept that makes it possible for all existing knowledge from the early stages of the design process to be available when it is needed, where it is needed and in the most useful format. It also allows the automation of processes and decision making with artificial intelligence tools.

This global connection enables the development of automated flexible manufacturing processes (multioperational) for parts processing with multimaterials (multifunctionality), with embedded sensing, both in the process and the product.

It also includes the development of virtual and augmented reality systems that allow advanced ‘Man-Machine’ interfaces. This section also includes advanced collaborative environments between people and robots, with modelling, simulation and advanced programming of collaborative scenarios, and the development of sensory systems to guarantee operational safety. Digitization also allows an interconnection between the physical and digital worlds, between the system or the real product and its digital twin.
