Alfa Laval recently opened a new greenfield manufacturing site in San Bonifacio, Italy, for the production of brazed heat exchangers. The new highly advanced facility includes research and customer training areas and will mainly supply heat exchangers to customers in Europe.

The new factory in Italy is Alfa Laval’s most modern and sustainable production facility yet, with rooftop solar panels supplying energy. It has a digitalized warehouse management system to oversee the flow of materials and goods, an advanced automated production set-up, an on-site training centre – and a lab for the research and development of new innovative products for heat pumping, air conditioning and refrigeration.

“The new facility marks an important milestone in our strategy to move towards Industry 4.0 and make manufacturing both smarter and more efficient, across the whole production line. With this state-of-the-art facility we are better equipped to meet our customers’ needs, and together with them we will drive the development of tomorrow’s product range,” said Mikael Tydén, President of the Operations Division, Alfa Laval.

Industry 4.0 refers to the integration of smart digital technology and manufacturing – with an emphasis on automation, machine learning and real-time data to take production to the next level.
