Moretto at Fakuma

Moretto at Fakuma

On the occasion of Fakuma 2023, one of the most important international exhibitions for the different working technology of plastics materials, Moretto will participate with a stand of over 230 sqm and over 40 machines showcased at the edition scheduled from 17 to 21 October in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The fair will give the opportunity to address the main topic in the world of plastics processing, such as digitalization, the circular economy and energy efficiency from the perspective of processes and products. It will be possible to take stock of a sector which has been facing for years a phase of radical change due to new technologies, renewed consumer trends and the needs of an ever-evolving market.

Energy efficiency becomes a driver of development

One of Moretto's strategic development drivers is energy efficiency guaranteed through its products. Electricity is one of the highest costs of the manufacturing industry sector and have solutions capable of significantly reducing these costs represent an indispensable competitive advantage.

The OTX hopper is the result of sophisticated mathematical simulations that allows the analysis of the geometry, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and material flow of the plastic granule with the support of the super computer Leonardo, an exceptional computer capable of 22 trillion operations per second. OTX ensures a regular material flow, guaranteeing correct drying of each individual granule being processed. In addition, the optimisation of the process parameters has enabled the hopper , technological airflow and treatment time to be reduced by 40% for the same hourly throughput guaranteeing a better energy efficiency of 66%. Because OTX is not a simple hopper but a concentrate of 7 patents that ensures a full control of all working parameters. OTX can be considered a 'Hopper Machine' in its own right by virtue of its features.

The human at the centre

Following the signals of the market, Moretto, has oriented its business model, investing in the Human-Machine relationship to be always competitive and innovative allowing the transition towards the so-called 'Industry 5.0'. With the previous model of 'Industry 4.0', the focus was on digitalization and the interconnection of systems, while now the focus is on the development of technologies that simplify the interaction between human and machine. Humans improve their skills and the effectiveness of their actions by technology, reducing the repetitiveness of operations and improving the user experience. The human being maintains an essential role in planning, organizing and managing production activities with the support of automated machinery and state-of-the-art robots. The full integration of human talent and technology enables the company to produce innovative, state-of-the-art products that meet customers' needs in terms of quality and reliability.

The central role of human is at the base of Moretto's philosophy, which for years has endowed its most technologically advanced products with the ethical OMS&P trademark, whose symbol is represented by Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian man, an expression of the values of creativity and genius that also characterize the activity of the Massanzago-based company. These values guided Moretto towards the development of an offer that enhances the creativity and intelligence of human capital, which has always been the driving force behind the company's innovation and success.

The digitalization that enhances the customer service

In addition to the central role of human, the digitalization of processes and services is another cornerstone of Moretto's business strategy. The continuous evolutions of the modern world, combined with the need to provide customers with a quick response, have accelerated the need to have digital tools to further improve the service. The after-sales service is a real commitment to customers for Moretto and this is why the company guarantees it worldwide, through trained technicians and specialists and thanks to automated warehouses, management software and online platforms.

Part of the process of digital evolution and service improvement is QR Code project, which aims to provide customers with some useful information by supporting them from the very first stages of their purchase. Its functioning is simple and intuitive: using the mobile phone and framing the QR Code on the machine, the user can access to a series of services with high added value, such as useful information on the machine, tutorial videos, the possibility to request the list of recommended spare parts and much more.

The digitalization process started by Moretto is bringing enormous benefits to the after-sales service.
