X Platform employed to Unifarco SpA case: a controlled production chain, along with a focus on customers and optimized distribution, serve as the foundation for achieving success.

The system gives a good view of the machines functionality, and its ease of use has given the possibility to the operators of the packaging part to be immediately familiar with the instrument. The support staff is certainly available and quick in answering.

Unifarco’s challenge: a product-service system

The objective of the digitization project is to make the production process more effective and efficient by applying integrated Lean methodology and the latest technologies in the field of Industry 4.0. The departments involved have primarily been bulk production and packaging.

The points of convergence with customer requirements, identified as potential areas for optimization and addressed through interventions, are primarily related to the operational functions of the machinery:

  • Automatic acquisition of machine times and operational states of the production line

  • Production digitization with management system integration

  • Monitoring and data collection of the production process and subsequent archiving

  • Line digitization: communication between operator, maintenance personnel, and production manager

  • Elimination of paper and visualization of Lean process indicators

Unifarco’s Solution: Digitization
