Part of the session: Sustainable Applications of Printed Electronics
After the industrial revolutions which entailed production automation, now production has become digital, with on-demand processes. This enables customization which was before unthinkable: close to the end-consumer, filling the needs and wishes of the consumer. The talk describes the pathway from analogous production methods into digital production in coating, printing and laminating processes. To enable digital production also there is need for change for advanced data-driven process control to reach this transformation. In the second part of the talk the work by Coatema on Industry 4.0 integration and the use of AI in optimizing coating, printing and laminating processes and equipment is presented. From the integration of analysis methods in R2R production machinery of OPV in past and current EU funded projects, as well as collaboration with and integration of novel sensor platforms and IoT gateways in new machinery and retrofitted in already existing machinery.
