Thanks to digitalization and industry 4.0, valve manufacturers can look forward to a promising future. A future with extremely decreasing defect rates, higher cost savings and most importantly improved competitiveness.
Digitalization and industry 4.0 have picked pace long ago. Many companies in the valves sector have already jumped onto the bandwagon enthusiastically, and while on it, they want to strengthen their competitiveness with big impact and most importantly huge volumes of relevant data. This ride into the future is moving fast nearly all across the industry. Even though no one exactly knows what to expect from industry 4.0. But it seems promising and encouraging. Is there really a Utopia waiting out there?
Digitalization and industry 4.0 surely influence customer products, in the sense that they must be ready for industry 4.0, but they also influence the internal processes of valve manufacturers.
Innovations in the fields of valves and pumps will be presented at VALVE WORLD EXPO, No 1 fair for industrial valves, from December, 1 to 3, 2020 in halls 1, 3 and 4 at Düsseldorf Fairgrounds.
