4.0 AREA

Over the years, BIE has progressively reinforced its vocation for 4.0 with the aim to inform entrepreneurs about 4.0 and explain them all the real advantages.

In 2020, their will to shed light and clarify what can guarantee the 4.0 to companies has emerged again, even if the focus has been moved from the current communication to the real advantages: it is not just taking advantage of the Hyper Depreciation in buying machineries, which are difficult to integrate into production without taking advantage of their potentialities; it is not a simple reading and data acquisition; it is not just make machines work in their own network, matter that we have been putting into practice in our companies since several years.

4.0 looks to the possibility to certify works and environments in order to: not consume resources, increase the security and its own fringes, improve the management and prevention of wastefulness, verify the making production cycle and making predictive maintenance. Moreover, with an eye towards predictive maintenance, at BIE we are going to organise the 4.0 area, which is a very interesting topic according to the same entrepreneurs who already are within the enabling technologies of 4.0.  

So, the fair has increased the initiatives dedicated to 4.0:

The digitalization of processes and adaptation to the industry 4.0 plan, provides for organization of remarkable complexities, so they are fundamental for the strategies to involve strategic partners in order to obtain functional services by qualified who simplify their adoption. .
