For GBE, Objective 4.0: the fourth industrial revolution
With the advent of the so-called fourth industrial revolution, thanks to the diffusion of new digital and non-digital technology, the industry is undergoing a profound transformation of the mechanisms that have produced value, innovation and well-being. Once again, GBE is not satisfied to just sit back and wait. We are eager to invest in continuous growth and increased productivity with maximum efficiency, so we have made the most of existing opportunities in the form of major tax breaks for investments in the type of technology envisaged by Industry 4.0. In particular, the area that interests us is that of an “advanced connectivity”, with the creation of a new generation data network that interfaces the key machinery for the production of the transformer up to the final test.
The GBE IT team, in collaboration with the internal software company, has implemented a data interconnection system between the technical department and the production department that allows the entire winding department to be programmed automatically. Data is uploaded to the machines directly by the department, with the planning and roll-out of the order. During the production process, the operator is required to identify the protocol number and authorisation to execute the work. The result is excellent: reduction in paperwork, elimination of machine setting errors, reduction of working time and, above all, of indirect times, standardization of mass production, and much more. At any given time, the state of progress of the production process, the material used, material in stock and waste can be viewed. All this is made possible by a simple “click”, even at the final inspection, each test and measurement is transformed into a list of data and values that can be consulted from your desk.
