Putting Industry 4.0 into Practice

14 November, 2019

Download Datalogic’s whitepaper to discover the many reasons why seamless traceability is fundamental for future success.

With greater product liability, rising quality standards and more complex customer requirements, traceability is a subject that is increasingly important and developing into a fundamental prerequisite to be able to conduct business at all in future. In more and more cases, traceability is an absolute must, since it is required by law, standards or supply chain agreements.

Industry 4.0 technologies provide companies not just with the possibility of quickly and systematically determining errors but avoiding errors during the manufacturing processes and thus improving quality. Businesses will also make significant improvements and streamline the way in which their products are created and released to the everyday consumer.

This, of course, means that business leaders have a responsibility to ascertain exactly what Industry 4.0 brings to their sector, and take steps to implement the best processes and train their employees to work alongside these developments for the foreseeable future.

When implemented correctly, Industry 4.0 can pose several key benefits, including:

  • Improved efficiency
  • New Opportunities
  • Reduced costs
  • Gaining an edge over competitors

In Datalogic’s whitepaper you will discover that the basis for traceability is the marking and identification of products. Consumers need safe solutions that ensure traceability across the entire product lifecycle. That is why this whitepaper focuses on laser marking as a permanent marking procedure and the safe visual identification and analysis of codes. Download the white paper here.
