Prod-IQ · SmartPress

More autonomy for your wood-based panel plant: Together with the Israeli high-tech company SMARTECH, we offer the AI-based solution Prod-IQ · SmartPress, which provides your wood-based panel plant with a groundbreaking autonomous process control.

Our closed-loop solution Prod-IQ · SmartPress leverages all potentials by means of Artificial Intelligence in your wood-based panel plant: It uses machine learning algorithms as well as AI methods to increase press performance, ensure board quality and reduce your production costs at the same time. The Prod-IQ · SmartPress architecture combines real-time production parameters with operator’s actions to generate higher levels of performance at all levels. Whereas the decision-making process used to lie with the machine operator, Prod-IQ · SmartPress now shifts autonomous decision-making to the plant itself. The concept synchronizes the performance of machines, processes and operators in real time.

Together with SMARTECH, we have already validated the unprecedented capabilities of Prod-IQ · SmartPress on a complete production line at a world-leading wood-based panel manufacturer.


  • Acquisition and analysis of (material flow tracked) process and production data and operator interactions - how do they influence quality and plant performance?
  • Application of AI-based algorithms and methods.
  • Online quality control through machine learning-based online quality predictions via the integrated Prod-IQ.quality module
  • Determination of set value suggestions in real time to increase plant performance while ensuring quality
  • Autonomous process control of the press by integrating the set value suggestions into the input systems of the line
  • Stabilization of further process areas, e.g. for moisture control (as far as influence is technically possible)
