PIA connects people, products and machines

Industry 4.0

The new industrial revolution

Automation is one of the key concepts in the digital transformation process and we believe that this is a new chapter in industrial manufacturing that hasn’t been seen before. High levels of connectivity will make machines – and even entire production facilities – intelligent and, in turn, more controllable, more adaptable, and even capable of autonomous learning. The limitation of “one machine, one product” now belongs to the past. A highly integrated, networked manufacturing process enables greater flexibility and ground breaking improvements in the efficiency of production methods.

The intelligent connection of automated production with the supplier network and the service network will provide immense advantages to all industries. PIA Automation consistently uses the advantage through networking and has integrated „Smart Production“ or also Industry 4.0 as an important asset in the company.
