Win-Win Cooperation between Han’s Laser and Lantek to embrace the future

Established in 1996 in Shenzhen, South China, Han’s Laser Technology Industry Group Co., Ltd was successfully stock listed in 2004. By 2010, it had already grown into a big group of companies with 6000 employees and, by 2017, it had achieved more than 1.6 billion US dollars sales turnover. Lantek has been working with Han’s Laser for a considerable time and its nesting software has delivered significant savings in material usage for Han’s Laser’s customers.

Smart pricing

It is generally quite difficult to know exactly how much each process contributes to a product’s value chain. The sheet metal world is not immune to the difficulty of estimating the right price for the product. There is an infinite number of processes that add value to a product: material used, scrap generated, cutting time, consumables used, labor associated with production, miscellaneous indirect costs, etc.

Intelligent Collision Avoidance

Lantek recently developed a new algorithm called ICA “Intelligent Collision Avoidance ) in order to minimize potential collisions between the head and unstable contours. When the new algorithm detects which contours pose a potential risk of falling and being positioned on top of nearby contours, the system automatically assigns a micro-cut at the end of said contour. Thanks to this new algorithm, the cutting process has taken another step toward full automation and unattended cutting, minimizing the risk of machine shutdowns due to collisions.

Advanced MES & Analytics: From Machinery to the brain of the Enterprise

Until not very long ago, machines were totally dependent on orders from people. They were not autonomous and did not communicate amongst themselves, slowing production and thereby also making them more vulnerable to manual operating errors. Now, in the era of smart & digital factories, MES (manufacturing execution systems) continue to be the backbone that control and oversee everything occurring inside the plant, but they have now moved up a category, revolutionizing management and production.

Project Management Software: from Product to Solutions

Project-based management is increasingly common within the world of software. The increasingly digitized environment requires comprehensive software solutions that provide relatively simple solutions to organizations’ productivity issues. This has forced partners like Lantek to offer customized solutions that efficiently respond to its customers’ particular problems. In order to deliver on all the commitments made with the highest quality and minimal risks to sales, the implementation of project-based management has become an essential tool within our sector.
