If we want to imagine what the next generation factory will look like in ten years, we can check out what is happening at the Airbus factory in Toulouse. Plane assembly in 2025 will take place in a high-tech factory with cutting-edge technologies currently in development or already being used: laser-targeting with RFID* for adjusting parts, cobot (collaborative robot) and augmented reality for operators, liquid electronic circuits integrated in the fuselage, crab robots for riveting, circular gantries for automated painting, tablets for guiding the assembly stages. Production costs and production time could be reduced by half! The cleaning, or rather extreme-cleaning, of such a factory must be of the same calibre! *An RFID chip (Radio Frequency Identification) is a computer chip connected to an antenna for remote activation by a reader and communication with said reader.
