“POM, VIA!”: a project financed by CIM4.0

EPF is proud to announce that the Competence Centre – CIM4.0. will finance the technological development project “POM, VIA!”


POM is an EPF automation solution designed for the apple packaging sector. It stands out for being a modular and flexible solution that is also fully integrable on existing lines.
POM was conceived and implemented as a plant engineering investment aimed at achieving return times compatible with industry requirements.

The purpose of the “POM, VIA!” project is to bring EPF’s automation solution to the maximum level of technological maturity, ultimately preparing it to be introduced into the market.

Innovative artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for industrial vision and new three-dimensional digital image acquisition technologies will be employed for the completion of the hardware and software architecture, allowing for the creation of an automation solution that fully satisfies the needs of the fruit packaging sector.

“POM, VIA!” meets all the industry-specific requirements using top-quality and innovative tools. The identification of a development and industrial application framework for real-time AI applications is at the root of EPF’s decision to work on this project and it is also fundamental for the correct use of technologies available on the market today and the development of strategic skills and know-how. This confirms the increasingly marked trend of convergence of IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) solutions in the development of 4.0 technologies.


In line with the company’s desire to take on challenging Industry 4.0 projects, “POM, VIA!” was developed entirely in EPF by R&D and Engineering teams.
The A&T fair in Turin, from 12 to 14 February 2020, will be the occasion to show all the selected projects within an area with interactive touch-screen.
