IoT is revolutionizing the food industry
Internet of Things (IoT) is an umbrella term for a wide range of new digital technologies that allow processing and manufacturing companies to interconnect their different production and control systems in order to increase efficiency and customer value. IoT is one of the cornerstones of Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution (the first three revolutions being the introduction of steam, electricity and electronics). Industry 4.0 combines IoT, new production methods, artificial intelligence, vision systems, etc. and will revolutionize all types of manufacturing and processing plants in the coming years. Alfa Laval is taking an active part in this development. With our IoT services for food & beverage plants, our customers get new possibilities to increase operating reliability and yield while reducing service costs. We are investing heavily in R&D and we will continue to release new IoT services as technology progresses.
