In the metal industry, European companies are increasingly losing orders to global competitors despite increased global market sales. Relying solely on quality, delivery time and price as indicators of success will no longer be sufficient, to secure competitive advantages in the future. The technological lead, especially for European companies, is continuously shrinking. Across all segments, companies are also confronted with new technologies, some of which are alien to the industry; the keywords are: digital transformation and Industry 4.0. Due to the digitalization of the market, mechanical engineering for the rolling mill industry will have to continue to adapt, in order to cope with the disruptive changes and secure its position in global competition. The DIRKRA Group team supports you in making processes more flexible, designing production steps more efficiently and developing a mission from your digital vision.
