Robots, smart technology, augmented reality… what technology is in store for the factory of the future?

Gebo Cermex takes us through its Agility 4.0 concept and how various technologies can be used in F&B production.

Today’s factories are focused on producing large quantities in bulk. Tomorrow’s factories will be smaller but far more agile, reflecting the overarching consumer trends of personalization and customization, explains Gebo Cermex (which you can read about here).

Gebo Cermex’s Agility 4.0 concept has five pillars:

Virtual factory:​ for example, envisioning how planned production lines will operate

Smart factory systems​: the use of automation and robotics, maximising efficiency.

Connected factory:​ communicates information across the factory, detecting and alerting managers to incidents in the production schedule

Eco-friendly:​ smart energy consumption will help factories become more efficient

Extended factory:​ switching from mass production to smaller sites

Gebo Cermex was talking to BeverageDaily at Brau Beviale in Germany this month.
