Blockchain, technology for securing your networks

It was born out the emergence of bitcoin, to carry out monetary transactions within a closed community, not in an elitist sense, but in terms of security. Blockchain technology guarantees an impassable, hacker-proof system, which works because of the utmost trust between its users.

Rob Powell, Commercial Director, Lantek UK talks about Industry 4.0 for sheet metal manufacturers

Industry 4.0 is the next stage on from the automation systems that many companies within the sheet metal industry are already embracing. We have supplied many CADCAM systems in the UK and we see that manufacturers understand the need for sheet handling systems such as stacker systems for the automated loading of multiple sizes and specifications of material and the unloading, stacking and sorting of finished parts using automated handling systems such as chutes and robots.

Getting ready for Industry 4.0

Most managers of manufacturing companies will have heard of Industry 4.0, but what does it really mean and why is it important? Rob Powell the Commercial Director for Lantek in Malvern, UK is in an ideal position to explain as Lantek specialises in CADCAM (Computer Aided Design and Manufacture) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software for sheet metal manufacturers, helping them to program their sheet metal machinery, optimise material usage and run their businesses more efficiently.
