It is part of the 'Factories of the Future' initiative, dedicated to the development of high value-added technologies for so-called factories of the future.
CREMA seeks to develop a cloud hosted platform in order to provide to the presses an intelligent maintenance process. This process, based on the management and coordination of suppliers, technicians and client machines, aims to reduce unwanted downtime machine, reducing intervention time and providing to machines an intelligent service that will increase the productivity and the availability.
