Why are you exhibiting at DTU High Tech Summit 2019? “IHFood is a developing company situated in Copenhagen. Several of our engineers are educated at DTU, so like the two previous years at the DTU High Tech Summit, we aim at attracting a lot of talented people, and we will be looking for new partnerships. For IHFood, it is also an ideal opportunity to follow the latest trends and ideas in automation.”
Jacob Dilling-Hansen, VP Sales & Product Management
Which main themes interest you the most?
“IHFood develops quality inspection systems and vision-guided robotics for the food industry. This part of automation is fundamental to succeed with Industry 4.0. We are, of course, interested in all the machine learning techniques, spectrometry, etc.”
What role do digitalization and robotic technology play in your company?
“Both are key elements in what we do every day at IHFood. The use of data or digitalization is what drives quality inspection. Used in the right way all the gathered data can help to optimize production, reduce downtime, make efficient production planning, etc. The entire supply chain can benefit from digitalization
Robotic technology, of course, plays a major role for IHFood being a company developing vision-guided robots. We see robotics as a necessity to improve automation, reduce repetitive manual work, reduce maintenance and robots can be reprogrammed for other purposes, it’s a dynamic product.”
What holds the most value for you at the summit?
“It is very interesting to meet all the new start-ups, but meeting with new potential employees is what makes us exhibit every year.”
What can we expect from IHFood at DTU High Tech Summit 2019?
“We will have an information stand displaying the different vision products we have developed and the technologies we have used to achieve our success.”
“It’s no use closing your eyes to the changes. We need to constantly keep up and try to influence the process.”
