To mark the celebration of MetalMadrid 2021, the Community of Madrid’s industrial fair that is being held on the 17th and 18th of November, and one of the most important events for the industrial sector nationwide, Lantek, the multinational that focusses on the development and marketing of CAD/CAM/MES/ERP software solutions and a pioneer in the digital transformation of companies in the metal sector, has resumed its on-site activity at fairs and congresses all around the country. You’ll find Lantek at this event in Stand 7E07
MetalMadrid is the leading fair in industrial innovation and, every year, presents the latest developments and news from the industry of today and tomorrow, where all sectors of interest are represented, from Machinery and Subcontracting, to Supplies, Materials and Treatments, or Engineering, among others. A total of 570 exhibiting companies and 9,000 professional visitors will gather together to lead industrial transformation, an area where Lantek has a lot to offer.
At this edition of MetalMadrid, Lantek is presenting the latest technological developments that it has recently incorporated into its portfolio of software solutions, making them more efficient and enabling smarter and uninterrupted advanced manufacturing.
"If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that production simply cannot stop and that we must continue to evolve and provide the market with solutions that are better prepared to operate with full guarantees in these new hybrid work contexts that are becoming increasingly common. Here, the cloud has proven to be our greatest ally", highlights Joseba Montoya, commercial director of Lantek Iberia. "During this period, our sector didn’t stop and Lantek certainly didn’t stop either. In fact, we’ve worked hard to develop new functionalities that can be used to raise our cloud products’ level of excellence so that we can respond to new market realities and customer needs. Our partnership with TRUMPF has made us stronger and given us more resources. And the best event in Spain to present the developments that we’ve included in our Global Release 2021, without a doubt, is MetalMadrid".
Global Release 2021, a range of cloud products
One of Lantek’s maxims is to produce more and produce better, but always intelligently. This principle is embodied in the solutions and services proposed for the company’s Global Release 2021 which will be shown at MetalMadrid 2021.
Considering the improvements by product type, fair attendees have the chance to get a first-hand look at the following Lantek proposals for smart digital factories:
Programming solution for 2D punching and cutting machines: Lantek Expert V2021. The new developments that come with this 2021 version represent a qualitative and quantitative leap towards the simplification and automation of the cutting, punching and shearing processes of parts thanks to the over 25 new features that have been added. Improvements in the importing of parts and management of drawings that provide greater working flexibility; new possibilities for more efficient destruction of spare parts and skeletons; optimization of the importing process of external 3D CAD designs with the A2N (Assembly To Nesting) importer; new spiral cuts for cutting holes and removing the interior material; smoother cutting processes; new microjoint treatments or nesting by zones, are just some of the new features.
Lantek Flex3D V2021. To meet the sector’s demands, Lantek has optimized its specific solution for the machining of tubes and profiles, adding new functionalities that range from the possibility of programming any complex and irregular tube profile, thanks to Toolpath Smart Designer technology, to a 15% reduction in programming time with the new 64-bit architecture. The incorporation of new, additional tools for nesting by zones and post-processing capabilities for the most complex machine configurations that save up to 5% of material and 28% of time, is another of the revolutionary functionalities available in this new edition of the Global Release 2021.
Lantek MES and Lantek Integra: comprehensive and accurate management, visibility and tracking of resources and orders is the key to Lantek’s progress in this area. For this purpose, it has improved integration with machine control through Lantek WOS Opentalk, which is carried out in real time; it offers more options for importing 3D CAD data (STEP, IGES, SAT) that improve the quotation process and provide greater integration with Lantek Flex3D; in addition to adapting the user interface to current design standards, to name just a few of the new features.
Lantek Analytics: Global Release 2021 incorporates the first Software as a Service (SaaS) application from Lantek Analytics, offering 24/7 access from any device and any location. Likewise, factory processes have been granted greater visibility with the introduction of over 70 KPIs and 10 filters, and the user can now define their own KPIs with the KPI self-service parameter that is incredibly easy to use. All of this makes it easier to take full advantage of the flexibility, availability and savings benefits offered by the cloud.
Lantek iQuoting: cloud solution for drawing up quotes from any location and device with an Internet connection. It makes accurate quoting and calculations possible in a short space of time, even for users with limited technical knowledge. The system connects the organization’s MES and ERP and uses data from Lantek modules for nesting, production order management and operational management. Intuitive and easy to use, the system automatically checks the availability of material and capacities and includes the costs of material, production and transport in its calculation, as well as individual customer rates.
Lantek MetalShop: cloud alternative that complements the previous solution, making it possible to have a 24/7 electronic commerce with budgets and online sales. This way, the sales department’s time and resources are optimized, expanding the radius of action to new customers and markets that want an online platform.
"Thanks to the new capabilities and functionalities incorporated into this latest version of the Lantek software, our offering is readier than ever to fit and operate in any context. We’re really excited to be able to show these new developments to the public at MetalMadrid and show our digital factory value proposition to help companies gain in competitiveness and help accelerate the digital transformation of the metal sector", concludes Joseba Montoya, commercial director of Lantek Iberia.
