Industry trends of the moment: digitisation and the use of technology for repetitive tasks


In a world of constant digital transformation, we are seeing emerging trends in digitalisation increasingly influencing the way industries operate. Industry 5.0 is a natural evolution of Industry 4.0, with a greater focus on the human factor, sustainability and resilience, says Aurel Nicodin, Facility Services Manager at Celestica.

“It adds a human dimension to the prospect of automation and efficiency, providing innovative solutions to workforce challenges,” said Nicodin, at the conference “Digitalization and Energy Efficiency – Oradea”, organised by Energynomics, together with the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Romania – CCIpR.

Advanced technology is essential to meet workforce challenges, and the use of augmented reality and industrial robots significantly contributes to taking on complex tasks, reducing labour time and errors. Collaborative robots, or cobots, are another example of technology that takes over the physical effort of the operator, but requires human presence for programming and supervision, highlighting the need for appropriate training.

Celestica, a company with over 23,000 employees worldwide, has a centre of excellence specialising in HMLV (High-Mix, Low-Volume) and HMMV (High-Mix, Medium-Volume) production for high complexity applications. The company serves markets as diverse as industrial, smart energy, health tech, cloud & communications, and after market.

“It is essential that the benefits of this technology are accessible to all and not targeted exclusively at those who control it,” Nicodin said.


Celestica makes most of its investments from its own funds, but is also looking to access funds for upgrading and efficiency. The company has a photovoltaic park with a production capacity that exceeds its own consumption, producing 1600 kWh and covering 22% of the plant’s annual consumption. Celestica also completed a geothermal water heating project in January 2023, reducing natural gas consumption by 90%.

Aurel Nicodin concluded that “industry 5.0 brings to the fore the importance of collaboration between man and technology, creating a more sustainable and resilient industrial environment. Companies like Celestica demonstrate that through strategic investments in technology and sustainability, high levels of efficiency and innovation can be achieved. In a world of increasingly scarce resources, these approaches are essential for a sustainable future.”
