Smart Skin’s patented solution measures pressure through an artificial touch-sensitive film, or “skin,” providing large-scale operators with precise, real-time measurement on the production line for the first time. Smart Skin’s European expansion follows a major round of venture capital funding announced in December of 2013.

“Smart Skin’s patented technology is exactly what the beverage and packaging industries need – a practical solution to real time monitoring and management that increases production efficiency and saves material and manpower losses with a very attractive payback time as well as including other effects on sustainability and resource consumption,” said Dr. Weideneder. “This is a problem that brewers and other bottlers have faced for many years. Smart Skin has brought the most technologically advanced solution to the market. I’m looking forward to bringing this solution to more companies in Europe.”
