As part of a growing commitment to revolutionise Malaysia’s palm oil industry through technology, Fusionex, an established multi-award-winning intelligent technology provider, today launched a ‘Smart Milling Workshop via IR 4.0’ with the Malaysian Oil Scientists’ and Technologists’ Association (MOSTA) called ‘The Future of Palm Oil Industry – Revolutionizing Mill Operations and Widening Markets’, which places importance on enhancing the palm oil sector with cutting edge, transformative technology.
The ‘Smart Milling Workshop via IR 4.0’ is one of the initiatives Fusionex is organising, where Industry Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) technologies are brought to the forefront of Malaysia’s palm oil industry to serve as a catalyst for enhancing the performance of industry players through innovation and continuous intelligence.
The workshop provided a platform for business owners, operations personnel and technologists to exchange ideas and share experiences regarding new research and innovative palm oil technology. Fusionex also took to the stage to share powerful case studies and relevant techniques that have helped the industry better its standards so far. The session also provided an opportunity for deliberation of issues, challenges and some of the latest developments in the palm oil industry.
The event’s theme reflected future trends that need to be adopted by the palm oil industry to overcome existing and emerging challenges, especially in the areas of technology deployment in plantations and smart mills, as well as sustainability and marketable products. Fusionex’s technology raises the bar for best practices in plantations, as well as the milling and processing of palm oil.
