In this anniversary year, Siemens also participated in the meeting of experts and supported the event as a gold-level sponsor.

The Glass Performance Days Conference (GPD) celebrated its 25-year anniversary on June 28-30, 2017, in Tampere, Finland.

GPD can look back at an impressive record of collecting and sharing glass industry essentials. Since its inception in 1992, a total of over 12,000 delegates have attended 3,000 presentations, listened to 1,000 speakers, and made over 30,000 new contacts.

In this anniversary year, Siemens also participated in the meeting of experts and supported the event as a gold-level sponsor.

In addition, Bernhard Saftig appeared as a speaker. As head of the vertical glass business at Siemens, he discussed the advantages of digitalization in the glass industry with the GPD industry experts.

His summary: Digitalized solutions along the entire value chain allow glass plant operators and equipment suppliers to be faster, more efficient, and more flexible. Digitalization will change the face of the glass industry as much as electrification and automation did in earlier times.

The result will be huge leaps forward in productivity. Take the first step and start with a small, easy-to-follow data analysis and then review the benefits.

After all, theres no manual for digitalization: It requires daring players among plant operators and equipment suppliers who are prepared to test things at a small level and then build step by step to larger and larger tasks.
