CENIT and Sugino Machine Limited have agreed on a strategic partnership to further refine Sugino's robotics and automation solutions. CENIT's proven FASTSUITE E2 software will provide the technology basis for collaboration.

Sugino Machine Limited is one of Japan's leading providers of machine tools, industrial robots and automation solutions. Based in Namekawa City and employing about 1,200 staff, the machine maker offers a broad portfolio covering development, production and sales of high-pressure jet cleaning equipment, drilling units and equipment for inspection and maintenance of nuclear power plants.

To help ensure the safety, performance and efficiency of Sugino's robotics and automation solutions, the company relies on simulation-based technology made by CENIT: FASTSUITE Edition 2 serves as a high-performance platform for Sugino's digital twin software, enabling offline programming, 3D simulation and PLC validation.

"For a typical automation system that incorporates a multitude of machines, components, sensors and robots, you must be able to conduct test runs and final commissioning on the ground, at the client's premises," explained Takeo Onishi, CEO of Sugino Machine. "For us, FASTSUITE-based topics like digital twin and offline programming are a major resource for boosting quality, efficiency and profitability in our project execution."

At Japan's machine tool expo JIMTOF 2022 (Tokyo, November 8-13, 2022), Sugino presented its FASTSUITE E2-based CRb robot model and announced a closer, strategic partnership with CENIT.

Together, CENIT and Sugino will now focus on leveraging the FASTSUITE technology for consistent and continual development of Sugino's robotics and automation solutions-from the initial installation of automation systems to changes in plant layout to full-scale re-engineering of entire facilities.

Peter Schneck, CEO of CENIT AG, said: "We are proud to be part of Sugino's success as a proven technology partner in production technology and simulation solutions. In expanding our strategic partnerships and further refining our software competence, we strive to ensure our clients' competitiveness and promote sustainable digitalization."

Gaku Sugino, Vice President of Sugino Machine, said: "The strong performance of Sugino's software products for robot simulation and offline programming is based on the FASTSUITE technology. We are certain that this will let us offer our clients the ideal tools for future-proof automation processes, and therefore we are pleased that CENIT will continue to collaborate closely with Sugino as a software partner."
