Lobo mentions that the fourth industrial revolution demands an extensive amount of flexibility and mobility. To help manufacturers cope with the pace and the reality of constant change, the company focuses on driving production efficiency through easy-to-implement solutions that will support both their existing and future infrastructure. The approach not only provides clearer insight and guidance but also emphasizes on reducing additional costs and meeting market demands effectively.
We have developed a “Manufacturing Digital Twin,” where everything that’s happening on the shop floor at all levels can be presented in real time
The company recently helped two of its medical device clients—that manufacture medical equipment such as needles, catheters, and MRI machines— in their effort to be compliant with stringent FDA regulations. The clients were engaged in the manufacturing of highly complex products which involved a lot of manual processes. To solve their challenges, Critical Manufacturing’s early detection capabilities allowed them to identify bottlenecks and production inefficiencies and eliminate paper-based manual processes. This helped their clients to reduce scrap, increase production efficiency, improve product quality and gain real-time intelligence for better decision making. The client also benefitted from greater flexibility for quick changeovers so that the products could be introduced to market faster.
The company is also currently engaging large enterprise clients to manage their manufacturing implementations in multiple sites across the globe. Critical Manufacturing ensures continuous investments in its R&D resources to bring the most advanced Industry 4.0-ready products and solutions to market. Additionally, the company has engaged with ASM Pacific Technology—an equipment manufacturing company—in a strategic investment plan. “Our combined knowledge and resources will accelerate our roadmap for bringing strong business value and competitive advantage to our current customers and innovative manufacturers across our industry segments,” concludes Lobo.
