On the Road to Smart Manufacturing: IoT/IIoT and Security, an Inseparable Pair

The arrival of the IoT on the market was a watershed moment in terms of how we relate to technology. It revolutionized everything, from smart homes to connected cars, to systems for smart cities, 5G innovations and, of course, industrial advancements made with the industrial internet of things (IIoT).

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.

Quoting in the cloud

In order for the company to stay at the forefront of development and the market, Lantek has provided an online portal to a customer which is fully automated both for sheet metal and for tubes/ profiles. This online store allows its users to receive a quote for fully automated laser cutting in a few minutes for 2D and 3D files.
