The aim is for the companies to collaborate to develop an MES system which will be seamlessly integrated with Bystronic‘s machine systems and software, resulting in a solution which will excel in cooperating with the Bystronic’s systems, raising them to the next level of productivity and efficiency.
The collaboration between these two industry leaders will help in the realisation of the digital factory for both Lantek and Bystronic customers. The combining of the resources and experience of these two industry pioneers in machine tools and software is a critical step in driving innovation and making the digital factory a reality. Together, Bystronic and Lantek have a great legacy and will be instrumental in building the most advanced sheet metal production facilities ever constructed.
