Fabio Perini is to boost its Industry 4.0 data-driven offering with the opening of three additional “PIVOT” laboratories.

PIVOT is the supplier’s global database that uses data to support tissue customers in growing their business.

Its first laboratory opened in Lucca, Italy, in 2016; a facility in Green Bay, US, opened in July 2017, and subsequent facilities will open in Joinville in Brazil towards the end of 2017 and a fourth site in Shanghai, China, in 2018.

The in-house laboratories will offer support for tissue customers, from tissue jumbo rolls to finished product.

Dario Giannini, Fabio Perini business development manager, said: “This provides a high-level of information helping to optimise manufacturing for maximum profitability.

“The result is actionable information at every stage of the tissue converting process.”
