Against the backdrop of rapid changes in expectations and preferences, in the accepted time to market, a sphere where loyalty has become rather slippery; where technologies are developing much faster than our understanding of them, we feel we need to grab something, and that something is Flexibility.
After several years already working through Industry 4,0, Factory of the Future, Smart Factory, Digitalisation, you name it, have taught us that the added value we could offer to our customer, to you, is to assist in building flexible enough machines. As simple and as complicated as that.
Through a close partnership with you, SMC’s Smart Flexibility is based on making your machines Industry 4.0-proof, in order to equip them with the necessary flexibility that markets are calling for. Smart Flexibility combines what works best; expertise in automation and the passion of working shoulder-to-shoulder with you.
