Stuttgart, May 12, 2016 – With the slogan “One Platform, Many Possibilities,” CENIT is presenting its high-performance FASTSUITE Edition 2 digital factory software in two places at the AUTOMATICA 2016 trade fair at the same time. In addition to the company’s own stand B5/506 in hall B5, it will also be making a special appearance in hall B6: FANUC invited CENIT to the “Yellow Highway.” CENIT took the opportunity to create the Yellow Highway in FASTSUITE Edition 2’s simulation environment and implement selected applications from FANUC’s other partners using this digital factory solution.

“Our partners have a wide variety of sophisticated applications that show visitors almost the full spectrum of our expertise in factory automation,” reports Olaf Kramm, managing director of FANUC Deutschland GmbH. “CENIT offers the perfect software tool for this purpose, that is, the latest generation of ‘digital factory’ solution that assists systems integrators and manufacturers with automation tasks, from planning to ongoing operation – and that for virtually all production technologies.”

On FANUC’s Yellow Highway, CENIT will be presenting trade fair applications from providers such as FFT Produktionssysteme GmbH & Co. KG (Fulda-Rodges), robot concept GmbH (Allershausen), LACOM GmbH (Lauchheim) and MartinMechanic (Nagold) in a 3D simulation environment.

At its own stand (stand B5/506, hall B5), CENIT will be presenting itself as a provider of smart manufacturing solutions. The focus is on its manufacturer-independent FASTSUITE Edition 2 software platform. With this program, users can create, program and operate robots, machines and production systems for specific technologies based on simulations.

All the technologies and functions interact seamlessly and complement each other perfectly in a single, innovative user interface with a standardized data model. This ensures an efficient workflow with full process control, while preventing data redundancy or the loss of information. The range of solutions extends from transferring engineering data to virtual startup of production systems.

FASTSUITE Edition 2’s modular structure allows technological adjustments to system-specific factors. This means that automation providers can easily expand and adjust functions as project requirements change, for example.

The software’s scope includes process-driven technology and control packages to provide offline programming even for sophisticated applications and technologies. With these basic features, users can get started quickly, and conveniently draw on proven solutions.

CAD data is transferred using standard interfaces like STEP or JT, as well as direct interfaces to NX, CATIA, SolidWorks, etc.

As a project and implementation partner, CENIT offers additional services above and beyond this software. With more than 25 years of experience in industrial production, the CENIT team can bring together engineering and production, and help companies to bridge the gap between CAD systems and manufacturing.
