DIGITAL CONTINUITY for manufacturing AT CENIT
Industry 4.0, connected industry, factory of the future
Companies, whether SMEs or large groups, must strengthen their position in a highly competitive and constantly changing market. In this era of digitalization, production is facing a phase of upheaval as the most important pillar of the value chain in many industrial companies. Manufacturing companies have to face new challenges due to the changed market situation.
More and more, customers are demanding tailor-made, partially individualised products. The challenge for companies is, to optimize costs besides significantly shorter delivery times despite the increased variety of variants
Companies are adopting digital manufacturing technologies to improve their productivity and respond quickly to their customers' requirements. Revising industrial processes and work organization methods also rhymes with agility and reliability.
Forecasts for production planning usually only provide planning security for a short period of time, whereby the factors "flexibility" and "changeability" become more and more important.
In order to meet the new requirements, the optimization of planning speed and planning quality is essential. Here software solutions for the digital factory provide the possibility to merge virtual and real world. Transparency, collaboration and knowledge transfer are guaranteed in a continuous platform and are not only visions of the future.
- Maximizing the productivity by minimizing idle times of expensive production equipment and human resources
- Minimizing the cost and effort related to the planning and setup of production equipment in the discrete manufacturing industries
- Eliminating risk and unforeseen inaccuracies during the factory planning and production ramp-up
- Shortening the time-to-production timeline by consistent digitalization and elimination of media breaks in the process
- Being supported end-to-end based on your existing IT-landscape, rather than providing merely isolated fractions of a solution
GET THE BEST OUT OF EACH OUR SOFTWARE WE OFFER
The CENIT experts of the digital manufacturing enable the effective implementation and support of your projects for a seamless manufacturing process. We support you with solutions designed to cater to your specific industry in the fields of automotive, aerospace and defense, transportation, heavy industry, industrial equipment and high tech. In addition, our expertise does not end at the boundaries of specific departments but spans across all relevant functions in the design-to-production process.
Digital Factory includes 4 domains
- Manufacturing Operations Engineering (MOE)
- Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)
- Manufacturing Operations Optimisation & Planning (MOO)
- Manufacturing Collaborative Operations (MCO)
With DELMIA software solutions from Dassault Systèmes, productions and subsequent product services will be developed, planned and realized. With powerful tools on a consistently networked platform, this process runs more efficiently.
DELMIA includes additive and subtractive manufacturing part programing, process planning all the way to virtual factory simulation and optimization (MOE). Manufacturing scheduling and execution are supported by the MOM and MOO portfolio.
The consistent application of connected digital processes enables the interlocking of engineering, optimization and execution of the production.
This way, manufacturing processes can be developed, simulated and operated to achieve significant improvement in the following areas:
- Production capacity optimization
- Manufacturing synchronization with product iterations
- Cycle times reduction
- Linking virtual and real production
- Virtual commissioning
For the successful digitalization of your production, we provide you with industry-specific solutions for the areas of transport & mobility, aerospace & defense, marine & offshore, industrial equipment, high-tech, consumer products & retail, etc.
FASTSUITE is based on a unique software architecture and concept which allows users to easily program robots and/or machine tools, making use of the process geometry, defined on the work-pieces and the available technology packages. The process geometries can be points in case of i.e. spot welding, curves in case of laser cutting or surfaces in case of processes like painting or polishing.
FASTSUITE Offline Programming selects automatically the corresponding technology package, based on the tool mounted on the robot for programming. The different technology packages will provide a GUI customized directly for the particular technology and will compute the tool path in a way that it is already optimized for a given technology, i.e. like arc welding or laser cutting and which will contain already all process specific commands for the controller.
Industry, under the impulse of digital technology, is transforming itself to gain in competitiveness.
For that CENIT supports you with DELMIA from Dassault Systèmes for your digital continuity, and with FASTSUITE for Offline Programming.
