By installing instrumentation connected throughout the production chain, we collect data in real time that allows us to regulate, stabilize and improve our industrial process automatically, to improve the quality of our glass packaging and, above all, to optimize the consumption of energy and raw materials. We involve our teams in the design of each digitization project. Industry 4.0 allows them to focus on managing more strategic tasks by generating more security and comfort as well as better operational flexibility.
We have set up an advanced control system called “Systems Experts III” (or “ESIII”) in all of our Business Units. The ESIII relies on connected instrumentation, data analysis, machine learning and the experience of our foundry operators for quasi-automatic control of our furnaces. The majority of our furnaces are now equipped with it.
On September 24, 2020, Patrice Siatchoua, Data Scientist at Verallia, received the Artificial Intelligence and Enterprise Trophy on behalf of the Group. This award, organized by the RH&M Group, highlights the transformative role of Artificial Intelligence in organizations.
Our teams support our customers around the world by proposing, developing and delivering healthy, aesthetic and sustainable packaging solutions that enhance the value of their products while reducing their environmental impact.
