The technological evolution undertaken by Piovan consists of solutions able to auto-adjust their working conditions according to specific processes. Equipment such as the Genesys and Modula dryers, Quantum's line of blenders, and Easylink and Varyo feeding and conveying solutions, are all self-adaptive and exemplify Piovan's "smart" technological development, in place since 2010. An authentic anticipation of the Smart Factory, a new reality on which the structure of Industry 4.0. is based.
The practical demonstration on display at the Parma Mecspe fair, put together by an Arburg-Piovan partnership, highlights two of the key elements that distinguish a 4.0 enterprise: decentralization, essentially the ability of various systems within a Smart Factory to make decisions independently, and modularity, intended as advanced flexibility that allows the company to adapt to changing requirements. Giorgio Santella talks about this at Mecspe.
