Smart Factory

Common, integrated platform for our systems. ANT: Smart Factory represents our solutions implemented to factory environment, cooperating with various devices and systems. The main benefit from implementation of Smart Factory is production speedup and reliability.

Smart, efficient and effective

The idea of Smart Factory is to give more and more control of manufacturing process to a computer system. Thanks to it all machines with production stations are parts of highly efficient, smart system.

Each part of ANT: Smart Factory may be deeply customized depending on the level of automation, production technology and client’s requirements. All ANT Systems are developed in ANT: AOS (Automation Operating System) distributed system platform, that allows our engineers to create custom solutions in stable, efficient and scalable programming environment. ANT-AOS is an open platform.

Digitized production flow and it’s impact on business effectiveness:

Production orders automatically imported of from ERP system or from Excel or other source. Despite that the production plans can change sometimes several times per day, and no person should be engaged in importing the orders manually.

Imported orders are automatically allocated by ANT system production resources – machines, lines – that are ready to take an order. Each machines status is registered directly by PLC or machine’s signals connection with additional manual data from operators. Each setting that could be done remotely

Immediately after current order execution is finished, the new process parameters are remotely set (load new parameters/recipes to PLCs or machine’s computers) with automatic changeover and machines setup. Then the new order is being started without delay.
