OUR HISTORY

Industry 4.0

Data, technology and digitalization for process improvement and sustainability.

In a demanding and competitive environment, Solera is committed to technology and the digitisation of its processes. As shown, the recent implementation of Industry 4.0 —including the application of tools focused on transforming and digitising business models and operations— has one objective: value generation.  ​

Transforming Solera’s production centres into smart factories, where established indicators can be monitored in real-time, makes it possible to achieve significant improvements in decision-making and its results.

More than 142 automatic machines equipped with PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), monitors and touch screens connected to the MES. (Manufacturing Execution System), production sequencing tools and comprehensive maintenance management allow for high production capacity and a quick and flexible response.
