Knowing how to manage the process of innovation
The 1st industrial revolution
He mainly dealt with the textile and metallurgical sectors, with the introduction of the steam engine in the second half of the 18th century.
The 2nd industrial revolution
It started from 1870 with the introduction of electricity, chemicals and oil. It refers normally to the effects of the massive introduction of electronics, telecommunications and information technology in industry as the third industrial revolution, which was started around 1950.
The 3rd industrial revolution
Also known as the digital revolution, it coincides with the transition from mechanics, electrical and analog technologies to digital technology, linked to the birth of computers, robots, the first spacecraft and satellites.
The 4th industrial revolution
Known as “Factory 4.0” or “Business 4.0”, it owes its name to a 2011 initiative by large companies and research centers with the aim of increasing the competitiveness of manufacturing industries, through the growing integration of “cyber-physical systems” (as know as CPS), in industrial processes.
How CZ+ interprets the 4th industrial revolution
CRIOTHERM ZETA PLUS, always watching to customer requests and constantly looking for new technological solutions, has already integrated into its Professional systems all the features necessary to comply with the 4th Industrial Revolution already in place.
- Interaction between Systems/Plants
- BigData and Cloud Computing
- Integration with the MES and ERP IT processes
- Monitoring and Energy Efficiency
These features make the CRIOTHERM ZETA PLUS Professional Series systems fully compliant with the provisions of MISE in the Italian Industry 4.0 Plan.
The 4th Industrial Revolution is implemented through three basic steps that are:
SOCIAL COLLABORATION = Interconnection of People
BUSINESS 4.0 = Interconnection of Machines
INTERNET OF THINGS IoT = Interconnection of objects
But what are the elements that allow the Digital Transformation of the Company:
- Connectivity: All the steps in the value chain through which the product/service takes shape are interconnected with the Internet, with the company LAN and with the new WAN networks for sensors and IoT.
- Robotics and advanced automation: new forms of interaction between Man/Machine, Machine/Machine and the surrounding environment that allow:
- Guarantee the quality of the product;
- Increase worker safety;
- Reduce production time and costs.
- Big Data: The continuous acquisition, processing and analysis of data collected (big data), through sensors, and centralized in the cloud, allow to make the right decisions to revise production processes and to build new business models.
With the integration of the CRIOTHERM ZETA PLUS Professional series systems with the CRIOTHERM ZETA PLUS plantManager system, you get the maximum interaction between the air conditioning and the company IT infrastructure with the possibility of:
- Adjust and adapt the environmental conditions to the processes
- Analyze the environmental and operating data of the machines
- Networking different systems and systems (Networking)
- Acquire Data to be able to share with Customers and Suppliers
Through such a large amount of acquired information it is possible to guarantee the highest quality of processing and the full traceability of the transformation process by constantly checking the costs of air conditioning.
