Laser or water jet? Two different, but complimentary, cutting machines

They emerged at practically the same time, during the second half of the 1960s, and although they use antagonistic technologies and processes, in a metal or sheet metal factory both complement each other because they are unbeatable in their respective niches, as we’re about to find out.

The wind blowing in favor of the naval sector is called Industry 4.0

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has long since created an extensive network using innovation and technological progress to take advantage of all the capabilities offered to us. For some time now, it has also been proved that it brings many benefits to enterprises in all sectors, including those that may seem more complex and laborious to transform, such as the naval sector.

What else can a MES do for you? Lantek MES, the competitive advantage of Smart Factories

The changes in the sheet metal sector start from the plant itself, connecting all the machines and areas in real time to make it more productive, thanks to the capacity of anticipation, prevention and prescription that the data emanating from the factory allow when visualised together. This optimisation is only achieved using advanced software, the Manufacturing Execution System, known by the acronym MES. A program that models all processes and machines and has the capacity and technology to communicate with them according to each machine.
