For Ceratizit, moving towards Industry 4.0 represents the promise of true flexibility in manufacturing, mass customisation, greater speed, better quality and improved productivity. The company aims to provide its customers with ever more efficient solutions in the fields of carbide cutting tools. In order to achieve this, it will digitalise its processes in order to leverage new, smarter control models. The big data collected via ultra-precise 3D optical measurement systems will make it possible to perform new types of analyses, such as provisional models on parts distortion during manufacturing. This will allow for the significant, continuous improvement of existing processes drawing on self-learning techniques.

To assist Ceratizit with its transformation, LIST aims to draw on the latest data analytics and big data architecture technologies. The two partners intend to use different statistical analytics and machine learning approaches and exploit big data in order to automate, optimise and enhance the reliability of manufacturing processes. While helping Ceratizit build and strengthen its position as leader in its core business though this digital transformation project, LIST is also fulfilling its own goal of helping Luxembourg companies adopt artificial intelligence technology for data analytics.
