Manufacturing automation

Increase of quality and efficiency

In the manufacturing sector, digital transformation has long been an important topic for increasing quality and efficiency. Automation in the sense of Industry 4.0 occupies a key position. As a company for innovative automation technologies, PIA successfully networks people, products and machines and continuously develops intelligent solutions. Because the more versatile a manufacturing process is networked, the more flexible and efficient the production processes become.

PIA production automation stands for individuality and flexibility.

The experience of several decades in the complex field of production automation gives PIA a high level of competence in the realization of automation solutions with a high degree of individualization. This is an indispensable feature, especially in view of the continuously changing demands of the market. This is because production-relevant changing framework conditions are just as much an issue as changing manufacturing and assembly processes in the form of changing quantities or horizontal diversification of products.

Development, implementation and support

The four elements of successful production automation

The development of a highly individualized PIA automation solution is based on various influencing factors. However, the product is always at the center of the concept. Because its individual properties ultimately determine the required processes and PIA elements. Only the perfectly coordinated interaction of product requirements, framework conditions, PIA system elements and processes enables an economically and technically optimized automation.

Interdisciplinary cooperation for project success


Individual requirements characterize the automation projects of PIA. PIA's employees attach great importance to close cooperation with our customers in order to meet these requirements successfully and reliably. The interdisciplinary cooperation of the PIA experts across continents is just as relevant a component as the personal contact person during a project.
