How Industry 4.0 becomes Casting 4.0

We are in the middle of a new industrial revolution: the fourth one. It’s called Industry 4.0. This term, used for the first time in Germany in 2010, is related to the digitalization of information.

Over the last 20 years, thanks to research and technological innovation, more and more people started to be everyday connected among them through the net and, at the same time, in manufacturing companies machines have been connected to software able to collect a big amount of data.

The importance of automation: optimize the production time


The term automation defines the introduction in a manufacturing company of technical tools and processes aimed at reducing or even eliminating human operations. The incorporation of automatic equipment produces several advantages, such as time saving, costs reduction and better quality outputs, thus achieving customers' satisfaction.

The most relevant benefit of automation is the reduction of workload for the operators, but it proves also beneficial in terms of energy and materials savings.  Automation can therefore lead to production process improvement, enhancing accuracy, precision, productivity, robustness, consistency of outputs and quality.

Automation can be implemented through different tools, such as mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic devices and computers, usually used together.
