‘New Bureba´ food processing smart facility puts into practice key principles of Industry 4.0 to deliver a more efficient, agile, flexible manufacturing operation
Campofrío Food Group, the leading international producer of branded processed meats, headquartered in Madrid, Spain, has cut the ribbon on a brand-new plant that boasts the latest in digital technology.
With a gross surface area expanding 99,000 square meters and an estimated production of 101,400 tons a year, the ‘New Bureba’ plant is located in Burgos, in Northern Spain. It replaces the previous facilities, destroyed by a fire in November 2014, but is far from a standard rebuild, incorporating the industrial sector’s very latest innovations.
From the beginning of the design process, Campofrío seized the opportunity to create a ‘smart’ factory that connects machines, devices, sensors and people in real-time. The company selected Cisco Connected Factory solution to create a ‘Factory 4.0’ that would enable to manage and optimize its business processes and make well-informed decisions.
This is the first implementation of the Cisco Connected Factory in Spain. With Cisco Connected Factory, manufacturing customers are able to benefit from a validated, complete solution to securely connect machines and sensors and gain insights from IoT data. The solution is already in use by international manufacturers globally, including General Motors, Stanley Black & Decker, and Daimler Trucks North America.
