Innovations for Digitalization of Companies

"Lantek has developed innovations in its software solutions to improve performance and adapt even better to the needs of its customers in the fabrication sector," said a company spokesperson. These improvements are part of the continuous innovation policy that the multinational applies to its products and which bring the reality of digital processing ever closer for manufacturers.

"One of the systems experiencing significant change is Lantek Expert, which now includes a 64-bit version and significant innovations in automatic nesting," continued the spokesperson.

The 64-bit version enables higher performance in the nesting and sheet metal cutting module and achieves greater security by preventing the execution of malicious code.

In addition, the following advances have been introduced in different technologies:

  • The optimization of the calculation of times for the machining of chamfers with water jet machines
  • Developments in programming both in the preparation of parts drawings and in nesting
  • New options in milling applications with the support of more tool types and different material entry strategies.
  • Additional options for the common cut grid
  • New module for designing mosaics.

The Lantek Flex 3-D Tubes solution is also undergoing a major change in 2017. The main update is focused on the 2-D geometry editing module, which is now much more powerful and easier to use without the need to launch an external program. New operations for defining joints between tubes have also been added.

In this way, Lantek customers can complete jobs with kits and can export tube structures by defining different types of joints between parts, streamlining manufacturing and facilitating assembly.

More Responsive Quotations with Lantek Integra

The 2017 version of Lantek Integra allows technical and commercial teams to be involved in the preparation of quotes through task based communication between them.

With Lantek Integra, it is possible to develop quotes from both Lantek Integra and Lantek Manager and to assign the complete manufacturing path to the parts, including the noncutting operations. Moreover, when generating the sales quote, notifications can be sent to the sales manager as soon as it is created or modified. When generating quotes, it is now possible to set the price of material as provided by the customer and deduct it. It is also possible to duplicate both charges and the rules established when configuring the charges. Furthermore, the lines of a quote, order, delivery note or invoice can be organized using special re-numbering tools.

Production management and warehouse management are now integrated in one system allowing the user to manage both tasks simultaneously.

The Lantek Workshop software suite has been optimized to record and validate 2-D cutting process and operation times. Users can now record the completion of cutting operations without needing real-time control, dividing the nesting validation process into two steps, cutting and de-nest, in order to differentiate the actual cutting time and the time spent taking the parts from the sheet.

Finally, Lantek Workshop Capture enables an operator to validate and record non-cutting operations in the workshop. Lantek customers can now record the completion of operations without having real-time control and they can edit data by simply reading the bar code to see the employee, the workstation and the operations to be validated.

"This new version of Lantek's software solution will help the digital transformation of companies to become a reality and it will help provide Lantek to continue to be a benchmark in Industry 4.0, supplying services and solutions with higher added value," said the spokesperson.
