Lantek, a multinational focused on the development and sale of CAD/CAM/MES/ERP software solutions and pioneer in the digital transformation of companies in the metal sector, announced its participation in the largest sheet metal and metal sector event in Italy, which boasts great prestige throughout Europe. The event is LAMIERA 2019, a biennial trade show that will take place from May 15 to 18 in Milan at the Fieramilano Rho exhibition center.
With over 500 manufacturing exhibitors from around the world, LAMIERA is an event attended by companies of all sizes specializing in the production of complex industrial plants and those specializing in production subcontracting, as well as machining workshops, small craft businesses, freelancers, engineers, designers, and all kinds of professionals working in the metalworking sector. That is how this trade show has become one of the benchmarks for the machine tool sector with regard to sheet metal shaping and the technological innovation related to the sector and Industry 4.0.
As an exhibitor at stand G68 in pavilion 15 at LAMIERA 2019, Lantek will show the new elements incorporated into its portfolio of products and services both with regard to its traditional core business, including CAD/CAM/MES/ERP solutions, and with regard to the developments for advanced manufacturing and smart automation within the area of Industry 4.0.
“At Lantek we have evolved without losing our essence. We’re still loyal to our ‘green’ identity, i.e., the solutions we started our business with – CAD/CAM for oxycutting, plasma, laser, water jet, and punching machines – as well as the proposals for the optimization of management processes (MES/ERP) that came later,” explained Sergio Castagnino from Lantek Italy, “but we haven’t stopped reinventing ourselves and looking toward the future, offering our customers the trends that mark the shift toward advanced manufacturing in order to guide their transition to Industry 4.0.”
This commitment to tradition, always closely linked to innovation to respond to the demands of a constantly evolving market, has led Lantek to become the benchmark multinational in the sheet metal and metalworking sector that it is today. In this sense, the next edition of LAMIERA has become the perfect stage to demonstrate how Lantek helps factories to produce better and more efficiently, using the latest technological advances (AI, Cloud, machine-learning, etc.) giving the machines greater connectivity and automation. Thus, the trade show’s attendees will have access to the new functionalities incorporated into the company’s traditional offerings under the umbrella of Lantek Global Release 2019, as well as the new cloud solutions recently presented under the Lantek 360 platform.
There are two objectives for these advancements: on the one hand, there are new features so that users can extract and use the data generated during daily factory operation, optimizing all processes and using cutting-edge technologies that support automation, management, and comprehensive production and facility control to streamline daily operations and make them more flexible. On the other hand, thanks to the Lantek 360 cloud suite that complements the above-mentioned features, companies are helped to prepare for digitalization by allowing them to manage all their production from the cloud, ensuring access to cutting-edge technology and business continuity from anywhere. In this way, Lantek is able to streamline daily operations and make them more flexible, facilitating efficient decision-making and improving product quality in order to achieve long-term success in a highly competitive environment.
LAMIERA is an essential event for companies specializing in complex industrial plant production and automated systems, autonomous machine manufacturers, and developers of technology for traditional factories. These companies will also have the opportunity to learn more about the trends of the sector, exchange know-how, and access top-level business development opportunities, as well as participate in a wide-ranging program of activities that include debate panels, individual talks, meetings, and conferences analyzing the market and business, among others.
