Virtek and Plataine Announce Partnership
Virtek’s LaserEdge® Ply Layup System Now Integrated with Plataine’s AI Solution, Offering Aerospace Manufacturers Real-Time Visibility, Improved Productivity and Cost Reduction
Virtek & Plataine announce a groundbreaking collaborative partnership allowing aerospace manufacturers using Virtek’s LaserEdge® ply layup system to improve productivity by tracking work in process, factory assets and materials in real time via Plataine’s Total Production Optimization software.
Plataine’s software continuously collects data from factory floor sensors to provide complete visibility and traceability across a manufacturer’s inventory, work orders, machines and tools. In addition, AI-based alerts and recommendations ensure operators select the right material for each job, perform tool maintenance at the right time, and optimally release jobs for production to minimize bottlenecks and shorten time-to-market. Plataine’s technology also creates a Digital Thread which records every step of the manufacturing process, from raw material to end product, improving quality control and ensuring customers are always audit-ready.
