The IoT4DigitalTwin project is presented at the Advanced Factories 2020 fair

11 March 2020

On March 3-5, the Advanced Factories fair took place at the CCIB in Barcelona. For the third consecutive year, Geprom, as a member of the consortium of the IoT4DigitalTwin project, presented their innovations for the digitalization of the industry. Celsa Group also had a prominent presence at the event. On this occasion, more than 17,000 visitors were able to see first-hand the latest solutions and systems for the Smart Factory.

For three days, Barcelona became the epicentre of industrial innovation, thanks to the more than 650 solutions in automation, robotics, digital twin, industrial software, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing, artificial vision and virtual reality presented by the more than 350 exhibiting companies.

Geprom participated one more year showing all their latest solutions and innovation focuses, among which stood out:

  • Monitoring and control of production in real time: development and integration of MES / MOM / SCADA / WMS platforms in the most demanding industrial sectors. The Legato Sapient MES system, key technology for the IoT4DigitalTwin project, allows monitoring and controlling in real time everything that is happening in the production process (breakdowns, alarms, incidents, efficiencies, etc.). All this data can be viewed later through a customizable and editable report.

  • Process flow simulation (digital twin): the main task is to work on the union of the physical and virtual world through the capture and simulation of data and assets with the aim of improving the efficiency of new investments, without altering the real production process. Several success stories were shown, including the presentation of the IoT4DigitalTwin project at Celsa Group.
  • Talent and culture 4.0: participation and integration of the human team to ensure the success of Industry 4.0, inspiring society and young people to be part of the fourth industrial revolution.

As part of the conferences and congresses organized by Advanced Factories, Dario Cesena, CEO of Geprom, gave a presentation on the importance of data accuracy for real-time decision making. In it he shared success stories and future projects of Geprom, among them IoT4DigitalTwin.
