Critical Manufacturing at Hannover Messe 2023: Expect More from Your MES

20.03.2023, PORTO, Portugal- Critical Manufacturing will be highlighting to visitors how its MES empowers manufacturers with advanced capabilities to drive innovation, increase connectivity, and promote digital transformation with Industry 4.0 ready out-of-the-box modules.

The landscape for MES has changed dramatically over the past few years. Historically, MES have been cumbersome, leaving manufacturers unable to embrace new advancements because of the difficulty of evolving and upgrading to the system. Today, however, these platforms offer tremendous flexibility, scalability and ease of use. To enable easy deployment across multiple sites and ensure the system remains ‘future ready', the Critical Manufacturing MES employs templates, container orchestration, and DevOps (a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations). The platform runs effectively on any hardware or software configuration and can be hosted on premises, on any cloud, or any on hybrid option. The low code system is inherently scalable and customizable, new functionality can be quickly deployed, and new sites added without large cost overheads.

A highly innovative solution, the Critical Manufacturing MES facilitates the adoption of Industry 4.0 manufacturing technologies with an advanced IoT platform. It provides complete, real-time visibility across global manufacturing operations, including the wider supply chain. It is designed for complete integration with new devices and legacy systems, enabling manufacturers to navigate the pathway to smart manufacturing at a pace that suits their business model. Features include end-to-end material traceability, bill of material (BOM) variation management, powerful data management tools, advanced analytics, and a complete digital twin of the shop floor to ensure total visibility of operations and performance against key performance indicators (KPIs).

Francisco Almada Lobo, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder at Critical Manufacturing, comments, "This technology offers manufacturers of complex and sophisticated products tremendous opportunities to increase production efficiency, enhance quality, and use data to provide deep insights into manufacturing processes and best practices while offering new levels of agility to respond to changing market demands. It is difficult to explain in words just how advanced and easy this system is, which is why we are encouraging visitors to Hannover Messe to visit our stand and see for themselves."

Critical Manufacturing will be at the Digital Ecosystems exhibition area, Hall 15, C13 at Hannover Messe, which runs from 17-21 April. On the stand, visitors will have the opportunity to discover more about the Critical Manufacturing MES with a conference space where partners and customers can learn and share experiences and insights about the MES.

The stand will incorporate a robotic arm, which will simulate an assembly station, allowing visitors to try the MES themselves by assembling a product. This will demonstrate the ease of use of the system covering work instructions, quality aspects, and intuitive dashboards. Additionally, Critical Manufacturing is one of the silver sponsors of the 15th International MES Conference, which will highlight the potential of MES for resilient manufacturing as a solution to disrupted supply chains, skills gaps and high energy prices.

"The way our MES is designed, with modules, containers and DevOps, means we are able to continually enhance its functionality. It provides ‘best in class' performance and sets a new benchmark in ease of use," concludes Almada Lobo.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
