Stölzle Glass Group has introduced smart software solutions for its Austrian and Czech Republic production facilities.

The digitalisation project took one year to complete and allows users to access all relevant production parameters or machinery calibration data in real time through various mobile devices.

The company said it means employees and engineers no longer have to get the data from a desktop PC and save time. Also, production and efficiency analysis material can be generated effortlessly in order to identify potentials for improvement.

The software was installed at its Stölzle-Oberglas (pictured) in Koflach, Austria and its Stölzle-Union site in the Czech Republic.

Stölzle-Oberglas manufactures 3.25 billion units of glass a year for the pharmaceutical, perfumery and cosmetics, spirits and tableware sectors.
