TIM San Marino and ROBOPAC have signed an agreement to develop the first 5G Smart Factory in San Marino.

ROBOPAC, founded in 1982, is a world leader in stretch film wrapping technology, producing over 10,000 machines a year, 90% of which are exported to the main international markets. 

The aim  of  the  partnership is to analyse and evaluate the potential of 5G networks by identifying "use cases" related to the development of innovative services and solutions for Industry 4.0.

According to TIM, the “Smart Factory” will be one of the main drivers of 5G. Fifth generation mobile technologies provide levels of service and performance that are ideal for the development of robotics and self-drive vehicles in the logistics and goods handling sector.  The availability of advanced sensors and the development of IoT platforms, together with cloud-based solutions and big data analysis, will ensure the greater efficiency of production processes, thus creating a competitive advantage for companies. Only real time communication between people, robots, production processes and systems can maximise activities and make industrial activity more efficient and profitable, said TIM.

Cesare Pisani, CEO, TIM San Marino
With the introduction of fifth generation mobile networks, this new industrial revolution will take even better shape, radically transforming production activities. Our objective is to guide companies through this transformation process, demonstrating how industrial and digital production plants can leverage the potential of 5G.

Enrico Aureli, CEO, ROBOPAC
Thanks to TIM, we can optimise the production process, identifying the new horizons we can reach with 5G technoogy. The simultaneous use of sophisticated sensors and high capacity communication networks, like 4G and 5G, and the transfer of data to cloud systems for constant monitoring, will represent a new ecosystem with which to review the whole production chain.
