Artificial intelligence in the sheet metal industry or how to optimize processes

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a key technology for the optimization of production processes and can be especially useful in sheet metal cutting factories from the automation of processes to the creation of quotes, cost control in real time, management of the cutting process or through expert guidance, using AI, of the machine configuration process or in the selection of the most suitable environment configuration to optimally manufacture production orders.

Innovation in the production of tubes and piping parts

Transporting water, protecting cables, channeling energy... There are round ones, square ones, rectangular ones or open profiles. They’re everywhere, from electrical appliances to awnings, including canopies, trailers or all types of machinery for the industrial sector. They are also manufactured in different materials, but the one we’re interested in is metal. For some time now, the tube manufacturing industry has been playing an increasingly central role in the plants, ceasing to be a complimentary and limited activity to become a large-volume production which incorporates complex structures and assemblies thanks to the improvements introduced in cutting machines and benders.

Advantages of becoming a Factory 4.0

No fewer than 90% of companies lack a digital strategy. According to a report by the renowned German strategic consulting firm, Roland Berger. Today however, these barriers can and should be saved, especially now that the fourth industrial revolution is here. It is unstoppable and there is no turning back. If you resist change you will be out of the market.
