CEAGA received yesterday, from the hands of the Regional Minister of Economy, Employment and Industry, Francisco Conde, the first prize for a grouped project with 12 SMEs. The project was established with the objectives of raising awareness, support and promote the Galician automotive transition to the Industry 4.0. It also covers 12 industrial areas because each company poses different investment to adapt to the industry of the future. In total, the companies have proposed an investment of about three million euros, investing an average of 227,000 euros each one.
The investments proposals for the small and medium-sized enterprises for this project cover a variety of technologies such as: full or extended automation, machine-machine intercommunication, robotics and collaborative robotics, scanning, sensing and mechatronic actuators, internet of things, equipment and machinery or customization of products, among others.
The 12 participating companies illustrate the heterogeneity that characterizes the Cluster, which represents the entire value chain of the Galician automotive. It also has the participation of the Automotive Technology Centre of Galicia, as well as other agents in the environment, as service providers 4.0. Thus, all CEAGA companies can see reflected its potential for implementation of the new measures focused on advanced manufacturing.
