The latest issue of Heat Processing is here!
The ongoing, devastating Russia-Ukraine war and the ensuing global energy and cost-of-living crisis have only underscored the importance of energy transition and the need to find sustainable, long-term solutions to tackle the climate crisis.
In a way, this is the strength but also the main challenge of digitalization – it requires a more interactive relationship between customer and supplier. By sharing data, we can optimize the processes as well as help our customers transform the data into valuable information. Armed with this information,
they can go on to make key decisions like when to perform maintenance activities or how to organize the scheduling of their production.
In this issue of heat processing you will find technical reports about the main topic digitalization. Till Schreiter, CEO of ABP Induction Systems GmbH and President of the THERMPROCESS trade fair, states in his Interview: “Decarbonization is the leading theme, digitalization is the enabler”.
We wish you an inspiring read!
