The wind blowing in favor of the naval sector is called Industry 4.0

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has long since created an extensive network using innovation and technological progress to take advantage of all the capabilities offered to us. For some time now, it has also been proved that it brings many benefits to enterprises in all sectors, including those that may seem more complex and laborious to transform, such as the naval sector.

Extended Digital Transformation, when the collaborative environment becomes a business model

The digital ecosystem leads us to create collaborative environments in which we can grow as technological partners, sharing ideas from internal sources (the company itself) and external ones (customers, suppliers, the competition, the market) to develop advanced technological solutions. This is what we call Extended Digital Transformation, a concept that combines the best value propositions of all the agents involved in the process of innovation, with the aim of being more efficient and more productive in the competitive era of Industry 4.0.

Adaptation and customization, beyond software

In the age of digitization, a company’s ability to customize their offer is crucial to enable them to become the preferred choice of current and future customers. This is an adaptation which is necessary in every sector, and the metal industry is not exempt: how do you differentiate yourself from the competition? The key is not in the product, nor in the software per se, but in the processes and in the way that the various pieces of software are adapted to them.

What Will the Machines of the Future Be Like?

If we look back in time, we will see that the machines of the future will follow the same paradigm as previous industrial revolutions, producing more at a lower cost.

Moving towards a Smart Factory

Industry 4.0 requires the provision of intelligence and technology to the entire supply and value chain. Lantek has become a partner of reference in this area of innovation, without sacrificing progress in other state of the art projects, as Asier Ortiz, Lantek Technological Director, announced in this interview. Big data or virtual reality are important tools for meeting the challenge of anticipation.
