Environmental sustainability

Z-BRE4K will lead to the optimisation of the performance, avoiding waste due to malfunctioning machinery and increased energy consumption due to the presence of failures. the reduction of the electric costs is extimated by 10%.


  • Material efficiency

    The avoidance of defective production and overproduction will lead to a better efficiency in the use of materials.

  • Waste minimisation

    Z-Bre4k will contribute to the optimisation of the manufacturing processesresulting in significantly less waste and scrap. Z-Bre4k will contribute to the reduction of defective production thanks to the optimisation of manufacturing through model-based control and improved accuracy. Moreover, it will allow to avoid overproduction that is to say manufacturing items for which there are no orders thanks to the collection of data that will control the production process producing only what is required and not overproduce.

  • Co-evolution of products-processes-production systems
  • Innovative re-use of equipment
