The company is also working closely with some of the biggest names in manufacturing to unearth new use-cases and unlock exciting business value.
L&T Technology Services (LTTS), a leading global pure-play engineering services provider, has announced Factory D.0 – its latest set of offerings for Industry 4.0 that address the fundamental problems with today’s smart factory solutions.
According to a senior analyst at HFS Research, LTTS has developed a broad portfolio of proprietary technologies and platforms to help clients accelerate implementations and realize the benefits of Industry 4.0.
LTTS claims that its Factory D.0 solutions have resulted in massive benefits for manufacturers across the globe.
LTTS’ Factory D.0 solutions include
Wireless Material Tracking: This solution is claimed to have helped manufacturers ramp up their productivity by 30 per cent and parts availability by 40 per cent – resulting in annual savings of $100,000.
Machine Vision Based Quality Inspection: LTTS has successfully implemented a 3D machine vision system to automate quality inspection – leading to a 20 per cent reduction in reject rates.
Digital Twin: LTTS claims that its digital twin simulations have helped plants with CAPEX estimations, quick root-cause analysis, and massive efficiencies through effective robot and worker utilization.
LTTS cited that its digital twin deployment for a global automotive manufacturer has facilitated savings of over $1 Million per plant – with a 40 per cent cut down in inventory and 13 per cent improvement in OEE.
Energy Optimization using WAGES: Using an integrated approach toward WAGES (Water-Air-Gas-Electricity-Steam), LTTS has helped manufacturers cut 20 per cent of their facility costs.
Collaborative Robotics: When operators get too close to machines with safeguarding devices, the robots shut down. This often causes a ripple effect wherein all robotic machines in that assembly line stop functioning.
LTTS’ collaborative robotics solution with safeguarding movement helps address this problem by avoiding shutdowns altogether, without compromising on workers’ safety. LTTS has facilitated savings of over $1 Million in plants using this solution.
3D Modeling: LTTS is helping manufacturers build comprehensive 3D models of their plants.
“We are integrating these 3D models with VR technologies to give plant managers a virtual walkthrough of the entire plant. Equipped with this, plant managers can optimize workflows, improve OEE, and unlock massive new efficiency,” the company said in its official release.
To be showcased at ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida
LTTS is demonstrating these solutions at Booth 28 of the ARC Orlando Forum at Renaissance Sea World. The 2019 ARC Industry Forum which continue from February 4-7.
In addition to these innovations, L&T Technology Services said that it is working closely with some of the biggest names in manufacturing to unearth new use-cases and unlock exciting business value.
