CIBUS TEC DIGITAL FACTORY - Put on the VR headset and step into the 5.0 factory

At Cibus Tec 2023, within the CIBUS TEC DIGITAL FACTORY area, the future of the food industry comes to life. Visitors had the opportunity to interact with a model of Food Factory 5.0, where digital technologies such as Industrial IoT (Internet of Things), VR (Virtual Reality), and Artificial Intelligence enable the optimization of production efficiency, simplification of maintenance and training operations, making production more sustainable, and enabling new post-sale business models for machine manufacturers.

Thanks to the new digital factory model it is possible to monitor the efficiency of connected machines and identify any bottlenecks by accessing real-time operational data, to perform maintenance and training operations in virtual reality, to order spare parts directly from the machine's interactive 3D catalog and to know the production costs and energy consumption of your facilities at any time.

Finally, the cognitive artificial intelligence simplifies technical support for facilities and access to corporate knowledge, thanks to a virtual assistant based on Chat-GPT.

Food Factory 5.0 is be based on the technology of 40Factory; in particular, the Industrial IoT solutions MAT and MAT XR by Linkersys, together with the virtual assistant WILSON.AI, have been connected to the machines of participating exhibitors who have already embarked on a successful path of digitizing their offerings.

The goal is to demonstrate how the proper integration of new digital technologies in a collaborative ecosystem logic brings significant advantages to both plant manufacturers, who can expand their service offerings and improve their relationship with customers, and to users of the facilities, who can significantly increase their operational efficiency and optimize asset management costs.

But the surprises don't end there: the Food Factory 5.0 model is constantly evolving and we can't wait to show you future innovations at Cibus Tec 2026!
