Voith presents its vision for future user interface


Voith presents its vision for future user interfaces with paper machines. Developed for the paper production of tomorrow, the innovative user interface significantly increases plant productivity, ensures paper quality and reduces operating costs. Based on artificial intelligence and the latest digital technologies, Voith’s interface design significantly simplifies plant operation and maintenance and increases the degree of networking. As a full-line supplier, Voith will introduce the user interface across the entire papermaking process from stock preparation to reeling. The individual conditions on site will be flexibly taken into account. In addition, the new user interface convinces with an appealing design.

Many new smart capabilities and digital solutions are integrated into the future interface, providing an excellent user experience. With the new design, users can see at a glance all the information and key performance indicators (KPIs) relevant to their work. This allows the operator to use artificial intelligence to intuitively optimize production settings, assign tasks individually and track them. Guided operating steps prevent information overload and incorrect operation. At the same time, smart functions optimize communication and ensure a smooth process. After shift handover, all data is archived so that a complete handover and documentation can take place. Voith developed the new concept together with the digitalization agency Ray Sono.
