Machine digitalization: from Digital Twin to Blockchain

Published: 30/10/2023

In the mechanical engineering industry, digitalization is also known as ‘Industry 4.0’, referring to the interconnection of machines, processes and people enabled by the use of new technologies. In this context, data are set to play an ever-increasing role, just as crucial are partnerships within true digital ecosystems. Furthermore, the boundaries between hardware, software and IT tend to blur in what is called Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and know-how in programming and processing is shared thanks to the cloud.

Find out what ‘Industry 4.0’ means and analyse some concrete cases, problems and solutions presented by the companies of the Smart Packaging Hub, a virtual meeting place where you can find answers to needs in terms of production efficiency, configuration flexibility, product safety and quality, traceability, ROI calculation, eco-sustainability and energy saving.
