At its Open House in Coventry — from 19 to 21 March — Bystronic UK Ltd will be repeating its Swiss parent company’s presentation on world class manufacturing, featured at last year’s EuroBLECH exhibition.
‘The Networked World of Sheet Metal Processing’ will tell visitors where integrated automation and new software solutions are heading in the fields of laser cutting and bending.
Dan Thombs, managing director of the UK subsidiary. said: “Bystronic accompanies its customers step by step on the path to the smart factory, and this is what we will be emphasising during our Open House.
"We will explain how our comprehensive range of new products and services is helping customers achieve greater
efficiency through integrated production.
“In this way, manufacturers can achieve a high degree of flexibility and transparency in their production — both important prerequisites for making products more quickly and cost-effectively.
"In the future, thanks to new software solutions, users will be able to create quotes faster, plan production processes efficiently and make the best use of their resources.
“Until recently, the development of automation and integrated systems has been focused on OEMs and mass production. Increasingly, with our automated flexible solutions and software, users will be able to produce small-series items
as economically as standardised high-volume series.
"We will explain how Bystronic Solutions make this possible by co-ordinating adaptive planning with material ordering and supply, controlled production and predictive maintenance, leading to reduced lead times and increased profitability for our customers.”
The venue for the Open House is 6 Wayside Business Park, Wilsons Lane, Coventry, CV6 6NY. Registration can be made at the Web site (www.bystronic.co.uk
