Presentation Title: Industry 4.0 and Digitalization in Packaging Machines
In the scope of digitization, new motion units and solutions used in machines will be mentioned. It is inevitable that compressed air, which is one of the main parameters in energy consumption of the machines, will be used and monitored more efficiently with Industry 4.0 based devices. By increasing the automation level digitally, it is important to increase their performance even further. Thus, speed increase in machines, cost reduction and energy saving will be provided. In addition, Industry 4.0 compliant secondary and tertiary packaging systems will be described in packaging and flexible packaging solutions will be discussed.
