Efficiency in modern production systems is increasingly driven by digital solutions. The new i Series features the technical connectivity for state-of-the-art production environments, up to “Pharmaceutical production 4.0”. Process equipment can be easily integrated via plug-and-play and open standard interfaces (OPC UA) This includes process equipment integrated via plug-and-play and open interfaces allow to connect the new i Series to modern manufacturing execution system (MES) as well as Internet of Things platforms (IoT).
While being digital ready the new i Series has retained its cross-generation system compatibility. While machines, drives and electrical equipment have been re-designed from the ground up, practically all components with contact to the product have remained unchanged. The new tablet presses fit perfectly into existing production environments and can work efficiently side by side with existing machines.
