Showing sheet metal and fabrication companies how moving towards a smart factory concept can have a big impact on business performance, Lantek will be exhibiting at MACH in Hall 17 Stand 670, as it is committed to helping the industry become more competitive and to promoting the technological advances that will help improve productivity and simplify industrial processes.
Lantek now has over 20,000 users of its software around the world and it is seeing significant growth in demand for its digital factory solutions, which indicates that the industry is ready to take the leap towards Industry 4.0.
For engineers, the company has a complete range of solutions including CAD/CAM capable of driving virtually any type of sheet metal machinery, advanced nesting software, quotation and costing software, planning software, analytics and systems to report on factory performance across international boundaries. The extensive options available allow companies to implement Smart Factory concepts at their own pace while having a clear upgrade path to a fully digital factory.
Being able to pick Smart Factory elements that suit their current manufacturing status will help companies to understand the relevance of the software to their own businesses and help them to develop a plan which will be easier to implement and which will clearly show the benefits of the technology at each step.
Rob Powell, Commercial Director, Lantek UK said: “With our solutions we seek to add intelligence to industrial plants and enable them to respond effectively and in real time to the constant changes that occur in sheet metal manufacture. This is an essential part of the digital transformation of enterprises, enabling everything to be interconnected and analysed. It is already clear that this new way of working is playing a vital part in the success of companies in the sector.”
