Geek | February 17, 2021
A recent announcement took place between Geek+ and Boreal Technologies. They told the world about their beginning of a strategic partnership. It represents both parties' commitment to helping early adopters to take up a successful transition towards intelligent logistics and manufacturing. Also, they will advance automation, digitalize, and optimize all of supply chain operations across South America. To see their background, Geek+ is a global leader in autonomous mobile robots and warehouse automation. Boreal Technologies is a prime provider of mobile solutions in Latin America.
Upon this, Randy Randolph, Senior Sales Manager of Geek+ US mentioned that the partnership will leverage the both companies’ expertise. This will help in widening customer base and advance regional expansion in South America. Last year, there was a successful implementation of robotics-driven Goods-to-Person solution in Walmart Chile's warehouse. It was meant to help them manage the growth in e-commerce.
Apart from this, Geek+ AI-driven mobile robot solutions bring noteworthy accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and cost-saving advantages. Therefore, by connecting networks of AI-driven mobile robots managed by an intelligent RMS (robot management system) to customers' WMS, it will optimize the process for sorting, finding, or moving ordered goods, enabling faster and accurate order fulfillment. By enabling mobile robots to organize inventory as per the real-time demand, it improves the ability to adapt.
Besides, automatic self-charging enables 24/7 automated operations to cater to businesses to manage periods of high throughput requirements in flexible ways. With less need for fixing infrastructure, the implementation process does not take more than three months. This becomes easy to add new robots without investing in additional warehouse space. The software interface is also extremely user-friendly, enabling a fast transition and a low training cost for employees.
Adding Roberto Fuhr, CEO of Boreal Technologies comments on this, the broad range of Geek+ mobile robot solutions fits perfectly with strategic focus, the business will see fast growth attributes. Today, e-commerce is gaining gathering with an expanding millennial population. Thus, escalating the need for solutions will also improve efficiency, lower operating costs, and build supply chain resilience. The strategic partnership has an aim to facilitate the transition towards intelligent supply chain operations and accelerate industry 4.0 in South America.
Symphony IndustrialAI | March 09, 2021
Symphony IndustrialAI announced the acquisition of Savigent, the IIoT, and digital workflow orchestration leader. This acquisition aims further to advance Symphony IndustrialAI's leadership into plant and supply chain processes. The combination of Savigent connected factory and process optimization capabilities and Symphony IndustrialAI solutions based on its advanced EurekaAI technology platform. It will assist the process and discrete manufacturing customers significantly to develop process efficiency, quality, and energy consumption.
Customers do understand tremendous value through Savigent's easy and quick-connect disparate systems and equipment within factories. Through this, it will provide the required visibility to enable improved decision-making and drive costly variability and inefficiencies out of a vast array of manufacturing processes.
Symphony IndustrialAI further enhances Savigent's low-code platform, real-time IoT data capture, and work orchestration technologies with AI optimization technologies. This way, Savigent will drive additional value for Symphony IndustrialAI's existing condition monitoring, asset performance management, and predictive maintenance solutions.
On this, Symphony IndustrialAI Chief Executive Officer Dominic Gallello mentioned that Savigent had experienced tremendous growth over the last few years. The combination of the Savigent process optimization platform and Symphony IndustrialAI's EurekaAI platform and solutions will augment value for Savigent customers in the future. Mutually, we will deliver additional optimization and analytics capabilities and hasten our global expansion. The solutions we can provide our customers, partners, and the industrial community are very persuasive."
In addition, Savigent CEO Dean Truitt continues saying that "the Savigent platform is a critical component in driving IT-OT convergence. It is because it provides the required visibility across manufacturing operations and delivers higher-value applications. The demand for solutions to transform manufacturing operations and achieve measurable benefits has never been better. "The potential to improve process operations through Symphony IndustrialAI technologies and AI capabilities is an essential component of next-generation digital manufacturing."
John Dyck, CEO of CESMII, the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute, further mentions that this is a tremendously exciting opportunity for both Savigent and Symphony IndustrialAI that will strengthen manufacturers' ability to deliver on the promise of Industry 4.0. This combination will extensively extend Savigent's next-generation manufacturing operations capabilities into machine learning, AI, process optimization, and manufacturing materials."
3DEO | November 12, 2020
3DEO, a metal 3D printing innovation organization, has won a Gold Medal in Additive Manufacturing from Design World's Leadership in Engineering Achievement Program (LEAP) Awards. In excess of 100 participants were gotten for the yearly rivalry, which commends the most inventive and ground breaking items serving the plan designing space. Victors were picked by an autonomous making a decision about board of 14 designing and scholastic experts. One of the appointed authorities remarked, "To incorporate the CNC milling into the cycle should assist 3D With metaling parts move from prototype to production." This honor is acknowledgment of 3DEO's novel capacity to scale metal additive manufacturing and rival customary manufacturing techniques, for example, CNC machining and metal injection molding.
3DEO was awarded Gold over some of the largest companies in the industry, highlighting how the cutting-edge startup from California is breaking new ground in metal additive manufacturing—particularly in the mass production of end-use components. “Recognizing the nonexistence of high-volume production in the industry, we founded the company specifically to break into high-volume production. The entire 3DEO team is honored to receive such a prestigious award and be recognized for our hard work over the years,” said Payman Torabi, PhD, Chief Technology Officer of 3DEO.
3DEO is one of the most elevated volume manufacturers in metal 3D printing. The organization has dispatched more than 300,000 production parts to date, including transporting 35,000 sections sent in a solitary week a month ago. A large number of 3DEO's production clients are in yearly production amounts of in excess of 50,000 pieces for each year.
Matt Petros, PhD, CEO of 3DEO, said, “While it is true that we are shipping a lot of parts, we are really just getting started on the path to production. I think that is what is most exciting about 3DEO today. Building an end-to-end production line took time to fully develop the technology stack, which includes 3D printing, automation, robotics, software integration, IoT, and machine learning. 3DEO is more than a parts company. It’s more than a metal 3D printing company. It’s a digital industrial platform poised to transform manufacturing.”
With the entire technology stack and production line operational, the company is in the position to scale up volumes dramatically. “Expect to see very big things from us in 2021. We are breaking into new industries, taking down larger and larger orders, and starting to compete head-on with metal injection molding from a cost and quality perspective,” said Dr. Petros. “When you can offer customers all of the game-changing advantages of 3D printing with similar pricing and quality as MIM, it’s a manufacturing revolution in the making.”
Based in Los Angeles, California, 3DEO invented and patented several industrial technologies, including metal 3D printing, which is the core of its next generation manufacturing platform. The company supplies complex stainless-steel components in high volumes to customers in the medical, defense, aerospace, and other industrial markets. By working with 3DEO, customers get access to cutting edge manufacturing technologies in 3D printing, machine learning, and robotics.
