Participation in the "Industry of the future" program by GIFAS
On Tuesday January 4, 2022, Exxelia participated in the launch of the second wave around the "Industry of the future" program for the Grand Est region at the Bologna site of LISI AEROSPACE.
"Industry of the Future" Program
Launched in 2019, for four years, financed by the government, as well as the Regions, OPCO2i, companies and GIFAS: the "Industry of the Future" program aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the sector through the introduction of new 4.0 technologies. This program, which is the result of close collaboration between the Industrial Committee, the GEAD and the AERO-PME Committee, is a continuation of the "Industrial Performance" program. Its objective is to use new digital and production technologies in all phases of a product's life. In this respect, the Exxelia sites of Illange and Marmoutier are concerned.
Frédéric BOIS, in his capacity as Director of the Exxelia site of Illange, was able to actively participate in the exchanges. The objectives were numerous, namely :
- Inventory of the industrial maturity of our site of Illange.
- Recommendation and deployment of Industry 4.0 tools best suited to the situation of each company.
Thanks to the Grand Est region which contributes to the financing of the program, to the partners: Cetim - Technical center of mechanical industries, BoostAeroSpace SAS, UIMM, DREETS, OPCO 2i, and of course to AERIADES as a facilitator of the aeronautical sector in the region.
