Digital Factory / Industry 4.0

The Digital Factory is the best example of the practical implementation of Industry 4.0. The 3D digitalisation of assets is the first step to creating an intelligent production environment that is fully connected, operates autonomously and self-optimises. In this way, you effectively reduce costs, increase competitiveness and create new products without expanding your infrastructure. In addition, you become independent of workforce instability, flexibly adapt your business to changing market needs, and reprogramming production will not generate losses. Take advantage of 3D scanning to build a new production model and optimise an existing one.

3D scanning for the Digital Factory

Digital Factory combines the latest manufacturing, data management and spatial management technologies. We use 3D scanning technology to acquire spatial data about the facility. Based on this, we prepare an accurate digital copy of the factory/manufacturing facility in the form of a 3D BIM model with updated 2D documentation. Our model can be integrated with Internet of Things (IoT) assets – i.e. sensors, sensors, and cameras. In this way, it becomes the basis for a Digital Factory and a Digital Twin. Such a solution provides the ability to collect, instantly process and make business use of up-to-date data from your factory.

How do we create your Digital Factory?

Learn about the basic steps in the process of creating a Digital Factory:


  • We individually analyse the needs of each customer.
  • Using our many years of restoration experience, we propose the optimum solutions and the most favourable technologies for the digitalisation of the company.
  • We specify the budget and present a tailored offer.

Reproduction of 2D and 3D documentation, 3D BIM models - the basis for a Digital Twin for the factory in various levels of detail.

  • 3D scanning for a precise inventory of the entire site including infrastructure.
  • 3D BIM modelling of assets with separately defined properties for each object element.
  • Verification and structuring of existing 2D documentation.
  • Preparation of a 3D model based on 2D documentation (e.g. detailed design).

Systems integration - ensuring seamless working within the Digital Plant.

  • Integration of the 3D model with the Internet of Things (IoT).
  • Access to real and up-to-date data in the cloud.
  • In the Digital Factory, all processes are under the control of IoT systems, allowing them to be monitored, analysed and optimised on an ongoing basis.

How will you benefit from this? Benefits of the Digital Factory

Improving productivity

  • Quick calculations for key production parameters (delivery times of components between production line sections, level of machine energy consumption, and the collision of transport routes).
  • Generation of various analyses and variants of production layouts based on algorithms and assigned data. These scenarios produce automatic reports with appropriately defined KPIs.
  • A network of interconnections enables intelligent devices to work together to respond more quickly to changes.

Transparency and production control

  • Virtual inspection of the factory, communication of inspection dates, alarming of defects, level of resource consumption, continuous monitoring of the process in each work section.
  • Creation of a digital work instruction that facilitates employee induction into a new position as part of a flexible team rotation.
  • Constant availability of updated data on the performance and exploitation level of equipment, material, and human resources.

Archiving and permanent access to editing resources

  • All of the factory’s assets are digitised and archived in a digital library in the form of 3D models with a defined level of detail (LOD). These can be used for modernisation work, redesigning the facility and streamlining current processes.
  • The parameters of the individual digitised assets can be freely configured (copying, and modifying from a template) in the virtual factory model.

Design and modernisation

  • Precise digital reconstruction of the planned spatial layout of the facility, thanks to the flexible positioning of 3D models on the virtual factory floor plan.
  • Obtaining complete and verified architectural documentation makes it possible to expand the facility and can be the starting point for designing subsequent realisations based on the initial model.
  • Minimisation of collisions between functioning and designed equipment, communication routes, and machinery. Modification of the layout of installations, cable routes, and production lines.
