Juntas Industriales y Navales S.L. from Spain
Juntas Industriales y Navales is a company specialised in the manufacturing of tailor-made sealing gaskets from a wide range of materials that are applied to different industries, such as energy, oil & gas, steel, maritime, concrete, chemical & pharmaceutical, water treatment.
The digital twin will serve for the predictive maintenance of the machines used for cutting and pressing, for the manufacturing of gaskets. The system monitors several variables that are relevant for the shelf life and functioning of machines and give alerts when a parameter is out of the established range, or a machine is reaching the end of its shelf life and can cause important losses or problems to the company.

Legumbres la Tierrina Vaqueira S.L.U. from Spain
Company funded in 2005, dedicated to the cultivation, manufacturing and packaging of fresh and dry beans belonging to the Protected Geographical Indication “Faba de Asturias” and other legumes, some of them with ecological label (agrifood sector).
The digital twin is used for the monitoring of the process of the fresh beans pods that the company harvested: the entrance and the passage to the warehouse, including the environmental conditions of the storage. The company also developed a web application which is able to predict the amount of material that will be entering the storage using historical data. The system includes a traceability module to register the batches and all the stages and incidences associated with them, and also a dashboard for visualisation.

Marina Textil, S.L. from Spain
Marina Textil is a Spanish company, founded in 1995 with a production plant near Barcelona, whose activity is focused on the manufacturing and commercialization of technical protective fabrics (woven fabrics, knitted fabrics) to produce personal protective equipment (PPEs) for a wide range of industrial sectors (chemical, foundries, electrical petrochemical, clean rooms, automotive, electronics, etc.), but also for the services sector (firefighters, police).
The company was already collecting real-time insights from its production plant. In this experiment they further developed their Extranet to optimise the purchase process and offer new features to the clients. This includes a dynamic interface in which clients can consult the foreseen delivery times of their recurring items in real time. The digital twin should reduce production costs and order lead-times and optimise delivering times which at the end lead to increased customer satisfaction.
PLANETA Technology D.O.O. from Serbia
The company Planeta Technology was established in 2007. The company designs and manufactures furniture and furnishes residential and commercial interiors.
The digital twin system developed for Planeta Technology allows to monitor the dynamics of the production system and predict its behaviour in the digital environment. The system consists of two main elements: 1) the collection of production data, energy, emission and waste related data and 2) complex modelling of their relations to understand when small deviations in process data will indicate “big” problems in the environment-related quality aspects. The goal was to enable proactive detection of problems and avoiding that environment-related effects will escalate.
