    A move towards Smart Plant Concepts in the container glass industry

    Glass Wordwide March/April 2018


    The application of state-of-the-art information technology in factories is the core of the fourth industrial revolution. Industry 4.0 includes intelligent, digitally networked systems that use highly developed sensors and intelligently link production processes. Heye is about to transfer the best concepts to the processes in the glass container industry. The focus is on vertical information networks within a glass plant but also on the cross-company value chain. Important elements are the intelligent use of sensor technology, as well as the combination of robotics with extended safety standards.
