Piovan has launched a new verison of its supervision software in line with the ‘smart factory’ concept of Industry 4.0.

The new version of the company’s ‘Winfactory’ process control and management software, which it first launched in 2008, has evolved to enable communication between various parts of a technology system that brings benefits such as energy and cost savings.

Winfactory 4.0 uses OPC - UA (Open Platform Communication - Unified Architecture), which Piovan says makes it possible to supervise and enable dialogue between Piovan machines and machines of other manufacturers (OEM). There is no longer the need for an interface that “translates” the data provided by each device into a common format, the company says, as the information exchange becomes immediate and the various systems can interact independently.
