The Galician Food Cluster within the framework of the Pilot Projects Factory 4.0 promotes that small and medium-sized companies in the food sector adapt and modernize their production processes to the possibilities offered by new technologies, improving their competitiveness.
During the three editions Prizes to the Factory Pilot Projects 4.0, organized by the IGAPE and co-financed with FEDER funds, Clusaga has coordinated and advised 15 companies in the development and advancement of their initiatives so that they develop this pioneering program of adaptation to the food industry from the future.
In this way, the Galician Food Cluster, in collaboration with technological centers and companies, promotes innovation in the sector, through the application of the Factory 4.0 concept, to incorporate new productive technologies in an early stage.
Factory Pilot Projects 4. 0
In the Pilot Projects Factory 4.0 Awards, initiatives have been developed by the following companies: Bodegas Martín Códax (1st Edition), Innolact - Quescrem (1st Edition), Atlantic Kiwi (1st Edition), Lago Aves (2nd Edition), Queizúar (2nd Edition) ), Quival - El Nogal (II Edition), ViniGalicia (II Edition), Portomuiños (II Edition), Cofrico (III Edition), Lugar da Veiga (III Edition), Quival - El Nogal (III Edition), Lambone en Casa ( III Edition), Manufacturas Ibéricas (III Edition), Panadería Toñito (III Edition) and ViniGalicia (III Edition).

- Robotization and collaborative robotization.
- Additive manufacturing.
- Sensors and mechatronic actuators.
- Cyber-physical systems.
- Total or extended automation.
- Machine-machine intercommunication.
- Total or extended connectivity.
- Personalization of products.
- Internet of things, internet of equipment and machines.
- Big data, cloud computing and cybersecurity applied to the industry.
- Logistics 4.0 to integrate two logistic processes.
- Modeling and simulation of industrial, operational and logistic processes.
In total, with the three editions of the Industry 4.0 Awards, companies have mobilized around 2.5 million euros of investment in Galicia.
The different measures promoted in these pilot projects highlight the need to focus on innovation and digitalization in order to continue growing and generating better productivity and competitiveness, as well as to anticipate the changes and needs of an increasingly digitalized environment. In addition, the projects have been complemented with the completion of two training cycles in 4.0 technologies and business missions to the main technology fairs.
