On the path to Industry 4.0
Thanks to the top-level production system A+W SmartFactory, the glass flow is optimized by coordinating the process flows fully automatically.
With A+W SmartFactory, key production data can be read out from the machines, making their production planning much more accurate and enabling conclusions to be drawn about machine performance, bottlenecks, etc. – your planning basis is what is actually happening in your production. With the A+W IoT Smart Trace data platform, you can combine all data supplied by the machine on one platform, enrich it with data from the PDC and evaluate it on a clear dashboard. Your company becomes more transparent.
The modular structure of A+W SmartFactory minimizes the risks associated with a system changeover. The modular principle makes it possible to convert a production environment only in parts or step-by-step.
A+W SmartFactory connects human, machine, software and product. If there are no possibilities for direct machine communication, A+W SmartFactory clients function as imitation machines that can determine status and capacity per machine thanks to the integrated plant data collection.
A+W SmartFactory is therefore helping smaller companies to grow and is driving automation forward in large operations.Recording of the A+W SmartFactory Web Session
