• Industry 4.0
THE FIRST INDUSTRY 4.0 BAR FEEDER.

IEMCA shall promote Industry 4.0 solutions and technologies for the digital factory of the future.


Since 2009, IEMCA has launched a renewal process for the redefinition of technical standards and products range.

The idea behind this project is to increase the bar feeders’ performance, reliability and ability to work independently by providing them with adequate equipment, so that they can ask for assistance when needed and what is more, be remotely controlled.

On Genuary 2017, IEMCA is the first and only Italian company manufacturer of bar feeders delivering Industry 4.0 machines which satisfy the conditions for benefiting from the hyper amortization of 250% related to Industry 4.0 Plan.

The new IEMCA bar feeders are 40% quicker, highly reliable, flexible can offer all Industry 4.0 services in plug&play mode (just power supply needed).

IEMCA Industry 4.0 solution consists of:

  • E-mailing and texting in the event of a machine alert;
  • Telecontrol (with camera as well);
  • Remote control;
  • Global teleassistance on the machines’ equipment.

Furthermore, IEMCA devices are able to gather and share data with other customer’s production chain’s machines, (lathes above all), and facilitate an exchange of information unimaginable in the past.

These machines not only contribute to shape the digital factory of the future but also to constantly improve the customer production process: the analysis of collected data is aimed at the preventive maintenance and the development of geolocation services in order to improve the factory’s logistics and production system.
