The concept of Industry 4.0 becomes reality in the region with Kern Systems
The magazine Metalmecánica Internacional has published the article Hoja de ruta para transformar tecnológicamente su taller (Roadmap to the technological transformation of your workshop), in which it is evidenced that the industry is moving with a cautious but attentive pace towards the digital manufacturing era, according to a survey between its suscribers in order to know their impressions on 2019's investment panorama. In the article, KERN by PM Tec is highlighted as a solution which " allows us to set down the concept of Industry 4.0 to the production reality of Colombia".
At the end, the purpose of such systems is to get a deep knowledge of the process and shop information to boost competitivity, independently from the technology available.
Success in the TEC DAY Bogotá 2018
The Center of Excelence on Injection Molding, CEI, is commited with the development of the injection molding industry and, by means of seminars and courses, seeks to empower factories with educational tools for boosting efficiency, quality and competitiveness.
