In order to assist users with process solutions in a networked production environment in the future, Bystronic and Lantek are now innovation partners working on new visions.
Many users’ needs for automation and digital process solutions are growing. This trend is being amplified by the Industry 4.0 impulses that are changing the world of sheet metal production. The software sector is playing a central role in this change. Software assists users in planning their processes, linking, monitoring, and optimizing them.
In order to assist users in an automated and networked production environment with outstanding process solutions in the future, Bystronic and Lantek are now innovation partners working on new visions. An initial important goal of this partnership is the development of a MES solution. Thus Bystronic is expanding its existing software offerings to include an integrated production control system (Manufacturing Execution System). In the future, this MES solution will help customers incorporate automation and digital processes optimally into their production. Bystronic will present a first preview of this technology project at EuroBLECH 2016 in Hannover.
