This week La Voz de Cadiz has organized a conference of 'La Mirada Económica' in which they gave some of the keys to what has come to be called ' Industry 4.0 ' were given. Our CEO, Borja Martínez-Laredo, participated in them, where he talks about the guidelines that must be followed for the modernization of companies and not lose the train of the future.
Industry 4.0 is the complete digitalization of the value chain through the integration of the data processing technologies, intelligent software, robots, and sensors, including suppliers and customers throughout the production process in order to predict, control, plan and produce intelligently.
Carbures has been involved in this transformation for months and is positioned in this Industry. Across the automated systems, they have been implanted in our plants. The investment in these systems is an element of competitiveness absolutely necessary as this year was demonstrated on having gained the contract with SABCA, a Tier 1 Belgian of world reference. One of the projects in which Carbures is already working in the cloud computing with which a reduction wants to achieve a reduction in costs, time and efficiency in our factories.
In the section of collaborative robots, the work that has been done has given his fruits from the area of the Mobility, with the export even to The United States and Japan, of this type of equipment for Tier 1 global that work for the brands of the most important cars of the world. In the same line we are going forward and working with artificial vision, using cameras built into the robots themselves, the team is designed to be able to recognize positions, objects and even correct elements whose position in the production chain is altered. We also have 3D printers that we use to make design prototypes and simulate parts for customers, with lower cost and higher reliability to later build.
The effort of innovation and technology of that small workgroup of the University of Cadiz has managed to lead to being a technological company global leader in composites, and the same effort is the one that has placed as pioneers in Industry his 4.0, and that opens a stage us, the jump the Constant Market, which predictably will take place next year.
Welcome to the fourth industrial revolution...
