Geprom participated this week in the third edition of Advanced Factories, the national benchmark fair on industrial innovation. During this edition, Geprom presented their most innovative solutions in industrial automation and industry 4.0 to the more than 16,000 attendees hosted by the CCIB of Barcelona.
For 3 days, Barcelona became the meeting point of industrial leaders, thanks to solutions in digital manufacturing, machine tools, Artificial Intelligence, additive manufacturing, automation, 3D printing, Big Data, Internet of Things, and Analysis or Blockchain that were shown by the more than 300 participating exhibitors.
Geprom presented on their stand their latest developments and solutions in the industrial intelligence environment –including virtual reality, MES Legato Sapient, digital twin and QDA quality software, among others– which visitors were able to experience first-hand.
One of the highlighted elements of the stand was the Lego model that represented the end of the line of a productive process, and its subsequent monitoring/management of production in real time. Thanks to the MES system Legato Sapient, all the processes, efficiencies, and real-time stoppages of the Lego line were shown.
Another solution offered at the stand was the Virtalis virtual reality software application. Through it, visitors were able to enter the virtual factory, observing all processes from up close, from conceptual design, training, to the optimization of production layouts.
The stand also showcased the success story of SEAT, where Geprom controls and manages production in real time at the Martorell and Zona Franca plants through the MES system LEGATO as the central axis. The project is also completed with the implementation of new tools such as the simulation of production flows (digital twin) and applications for digitalization and optimization of maintenance. Through the technology of the Digital Twin we can create a virtual copy of our factory and thus be able to study its movements, possible problems, and consequent solutions.
The magazine infoPLC ++ has published in its special issue for Advanced Factories an article explaining in depth our success case. You can read it here.
On the other hand, the stand included a demonstration of our quality software, which digitizes and optimizes all the processes for the detection of faults in the products, and their rapid resolution.
Parallel to the fair itself, within the agenda of the event is the Industry 4.0 Congress, where more than 180 international speakers participated in talks, conferences and debates on industry 4.0, its equipment and its processes. Dario Cesena, CEO of Geprom, was part of the session “Decisions based on data: a threat or an opportunity?”, where he discussed the importance of the accuracy of the data in real time.
Dario Cesena also had the opportunity to participate as speaker in the Factory Innovation Theater and in the Brokerage Stage (in the latter with Secartys), where he shared his vision of digitalisation and the factory of the future.
The third edition of the fair ended with 360 innovations presented, 120 hours of inspiring conferences and 50 hours of complementary activities. Advanced Factories is already preparing its next edition for May 3, 4 and 5, 2020.
Once again, we want to thank our partners Gefasoft, Objective, QDA, New Solutions, Telefónica Empresas and Virtalis for their support and collaboration. It would not have been possible to participate in Advanced Factories without them and to continue moving forward towards the factory of the future.
