4. Improved efficiency through connectivity
We have entered the fourth phase of industrial development: Industry 4.0. Machines in factories are connected to each other and to other factories. This development makes it possible to achieve an even higher level of efficiency. The latest technologies result in the constant exchange of useful data at Rompa.
5. Global plastic production continues to grow
The demand for plastic products continues to grow on an annual basis. With the innovative solutions suppliers develop when it comes to design and materials, it is possible to replace all kinds of metals in more and more finished products with plastic. A perfect example is a new Nylon 6 material for electronics.
6. Lightweight plastics
The market for lightweight plastics is constantly developing. The plastics industry is a leader when it comes to innovations in lightweight solutions. Major industries such as the automotive industry are already moving from steel to plastic for certain applications. That also improves sustainability, because lighter cars use less fuel. Rompa’s engineers consider the possibility of using lightweight plastics early on in the design process.
