According to this FOAM EXPO Show poll in 2018 the majority of the audience (80%) indicated that they perceived automation to be a critical driver in the success of their business and that digitisation in this industry is nascent. The consensus was that the biggest challenge of implementation is component and software integration.
As a consequence, for this year edition at Stuttgart, FOAM EXPO Show organised last 10th September a Panel Discussion over the Industry 4.0 approach of the flexible foam industry and IPF General Manger, Mr. Angel Viñas, was invited to take part of it as expert in this field.
IPF developed MYFOAMPLANT, the first secured industry 4.0 platform dedicated to the foaming industry – to connect and to collect data from all your machines, from the tank farm to the cutting machines – to measure your efficiency and your quality at all stages of the foaming /converting process – to convert your data in information to improve your process and to save money.
The potential of digitalisation in foam manufacturing and converting process is huge. Are you ready to start working on it?
