Once you begin to grapple with the issue of sustainability, you quickly realize that everything is connected. Which makes holistic thinking essential. Some of the considerations that must be addressed are as follows:

These questions form part of our process-oriented management system, which we use to evaluate and improve all our process on an ongoing basis. However, it is also very important to us at VITRONIC that we help our customers to do business in a more sustainable way. After all, our solutions are capable of making production and automation processes more energy-efficient and less resource-intensive.

In this way, VITRONIC machine vision systems help focus the attention of users and operators in the relevant industries more sharply on the issue of sustainability. 

For VITRONIC, sustainability is not just a buzzword that is only relevant to the company's environmental management system. In fact, it forms part of our current corporate strategy. And we continue to strive to ensure that our solutions contribute to greater sustainability for our customers.

For example, our solutions guarantee that incorrect or defective items are filtered out of the production processes at an early stage. This reduces waste and avoids resource-intensive downstream processes and rework. Our systems optimize transport capacities and routes, and reduce energy consumption.
