Russula presented its automation know-how and latest smart technology developments at the Future Steel Forum in Warsaw, Poland, this past June.
Industry experts, academia and the top equipment suppliers all presented their perspectives on Industry 4.0 and the future steel factory. Cyber-security,
big data and the creation of digital twins, were all topics that prompted lively discussions.
While many of the presentations focused on the future impact of smart manufacturing, the Russula Sales Director, Daniel Sanchez, gave a refreshing presentation grounded in the reality of automation in steel plants today. When he reflected on the large number of legacy automation equipment that is still working in our steel factories, his point was well received among the steel producers.
When we talk about Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, big data and other innovative features we have to think first about creating the right foundations, upgrading or retrofitting the existing equipment before the plant can take full advantage of what information driven manufacturing has to offer.
Daniel Sanchez, Russula Sales Director
