The SMARTENPAL project ends to investigate an advanced collaborative industrial process and IoT technologies

Submitted by Judith Marti on 12 April 2024


The purpose of the project is the industrial research of advanced intelligent technologies for Monitoring and Robotization of the end-of-line palletizing and wrapping processes.

Infosa, Pentamatik, Controlpack, Tepsis, BertIA and the Packaging Cluster, complete the SMARTENPAL collaborative innovation project, with the objective of investigating an advanced collaborative industrial palletizing process, and the digital transformation of wrapping equipment, to automate and optimize the ends of lines. The SMARTENPAL project focused on addressing important challenges within the field of digitalization/industry 4.0, automation, prediction and sustainability, for the transformation of the packaging sector. The project intended to, in the first instance, launch a pilot to validate the effectiveness of an advanced collaborative robotic system for palletizing. Secondly, address the control and prediction of consumption, performance and maintenance of the balers.

The success of this project has allowed us to obtain new technologies in the fields of automation, IoT, energy efficiency, flexibility and quality, which will represent a technological leap for the sector and will enhance its transformation. The project has a subsidy of €181,107 from the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism on a budget of €242,762, financing that will help obtain advanced technologies for line ends, through collaboration between companies and agents in the sector. The SMARTENPAL project is financed by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism through the support program for Innovative Business Groups (AEI), within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, with the aim of improving the competitiveness of the small and medium businesses.
