Once again, the canning industry is at the head of the technological evolution. In the quest for the maximum efficiency and quality, and the minimumenvironmental impact, canneries are evolving to this so called industry 4.0.
Robotics and R&D experts working alongside managers and directors are preparing the path to adapt to technological revolution while preserving the touch and importance of the human hand. Since the human factor will still be important, human resources are to bring up-to-date day a day to go in ‘this new industrial era. Robotics and human collaborative work is the key’, ANFACO declares.
Only in 2015, ANFACO has developed 15 collaborative projects with a 22M€ budget and 33 direct contracts with the industry to develop 4.0 solutions. These projects led to 6 patents in this area. ANFACO wants its companies to be updated, flexible and to make ‘possible the impossible’.
