Digitalization and the gypsum industry: two worlds and one future

Digitalization is advancing at a rapid pace. Therefore, when it comes to making your production processes even better and more efficient, we can provide stimuli, ideas and solve problems with digital solutions. We work on digital solutions for the gypsum industry with our Grenzebach digital colleagues.



We consider ourselves a partner on the route to digitalization.

We’d like to sound out the added value and potentials of digitalization and ensure our customers can harness these in the long term.

Our vision – a transparent value chain

Every day, valuable data are generated along your value chain, which, until now, had no impact on the work you do. But it's data that offer exceptional potential to make your production processes more efficient and better quality and allow you to save resources.


“Our long-term goal is to make capturing and analyzing your process data easier. We'd like to obtain data that allow you to continue to exploit your production potential. By intelligently linking the systems, we want to make your value chain more transparent.”

Christian Gärtner, Sales Manager Gypsum Technology

Please find a selection of upgrade services below:

  • HMI Upgrade

    Forward-looking upgrades of your hardware and software components ensure continuous, stable and effective production. Our Upgrade-Package includes:

    •  > Provision of new hardware
    •  > Update of the operating system
    •  > Update of the Siemens programming software
    •  > Commissioning service
  • Frequency converter retrofit

    In contrast to direct-driven fans with throttle and vane controllers, variable-frequency systems with frequency converters provide for energy-efficient speed control. Profit from a controlled AC voltage regulation adapted to the fan's power requirements.

    Your benefits:

    • > Energy savings
    • > Controlled system
    • > Less noise
    • > Smooth running
  • Control system upgrade

    Control systems of your plant must run safely and reliably. Prevent downtimes caused by obsolete technology with our Upgrade-Packages:

Virtual Reality - Explore your plant in a virtual space


Whether for training purposes or for planning your new individual production line - we can make your plant accessible in virtual reality. Experience your new machines realistically even before they have been built, or use the potential of virtual reality to train your employees in an early phase of commissioning.

Gaining a transparent know-how for maintenance services

Virtual reality offers your employees a brand-new training experience. They can practice routines in a virtual environment that simulates real-word conditions without any risk. As a result, staff can be trained in complex methods and processes without having set foot in the manufacturing area beforehand: We give you new training methods, starting with just exploring a gypsum line to changing cutting blades.


Your benefits:

  • > Better trained personnel
  • > Optimal maintenance performance 
  • > New dimension of know-how transfer
  • > Remote learning
