Peachtree Packaging & Display is thrilled to announce the addition of a Barberan Jetmaster to its printing infrastructure. As a plateless printer, the Series 1750 2.0 digital printer expands Peachtree's capacity for short-run and custom jobs that achieve litho-like print quality in record time. Coupled with Peachtree's Gopfert Evolution and other equipment, the addition offers customers unparalleled digital printing quality and efficiency for their projects. The Spanish manufacturer of the Barberan Jetmaster Series 1750 calls the technology "A New Era" in digital printing due to its single-pass printing capabilities. The printer is entirely digital and plateless. The elimination of plates in the process significantly reduces the cost of small or mid-volume jobs and shortens the time to complete projects. The new printer allows for a new level of customization. Art changes are controlled digitally and can be changed at any time. In addition, the printer has two streams where multiple project versions can be produced in-line on the same structure with no changeover and a max sheet size of 63.5 inches by 118 inches. Also, Peachtree's Barberan is currently the world's only printer with an in-line, post-print coating attachment. The color gamut of the Barberan Jetmaster is unparalleled in its range and quality. Projects have litho-like print quality due to advanced Pantone color matching and an extended color gamut. The Barberan prints images at an exceptional 600 DPI image resolution. The use of UV inks with LED curing ensures the correct size of each droplet, eliminating dot expansion and color mixing. Products also receive UV LED curing with gloss or satin finish flexibility. The system further ensures image integrity while reducing production time and energy consumption. "Industry leaders must have industry-leading technology. We chose Barberan for a reason. Our mission as a company is to provide world-class packaging and print solutions. Our brand identity is built on protecting the integrity of other company brands," said Chad Wagner, president and CEO of Peachtree Packaging.

Siemens and Microsoft drive industrial productivity with generative artificial intelligence

Prnewswire | April 13, 2023

Siemens and Microsoft are harnessing the collaborative power of generative artificial intelligence (AI) to help industrial companies drive innovation and efficiency across the design, engineering, manufacturing and operational lifecycle of products. To enhance cross-functional collaboration, the companies are integrating Siemens' Teamcenter® software for product lifecycle management (PLM) with Microsoft's collaboration platform Teams and the language models in Azure OpenAI Service as well as other Azure AI capabilities. At Hannover Messe, the two technology leaders will demonstrate how generative AI can enhance factory automation and operations through AI-powered software development, problem reporting and visual quality inspection. "The integration of AI into technology platforms will profoundly change how we work and how every business operates," said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president, Cloud + AI, Microsoft. "With Siemens, we are bringing the power of AI to more industrial organizations, enabling them to simplify workflows, overcome silos and collaborate in more inclusive ways to accelerate customer-centric innovation." Connecting shop floor workers with teams across business functions through AI-powered collaborative apps With the new Teamcenter app for Microsoft Teams, anticipated later in 2023, the companies are enabling design engineers, frontline workers and teams across business functions to close feedback loops faster and solve challenges together. For example, service engineers or production operatives can use mobile devices to document and report product design or quality concerns using natural speech. Through Azure OpenAI Service, the app can parse that informal speech data, automatically creating a summarized report and routing it within Teamcenter to the appropriate design, engineering or manufacturing expert. To foster inclusion, workers can record their observations in their preferred languages which is then translated into the official company language with Microsoft Azure AI. Microsoft Teams provides user-friendly features like push notifications to simplify workflow approvals, reduce the time it takes to request design changes and speed up innovation cycles. The Teamcenter app for Microsoft Teams can enable millions of workers who do not have access to PLM tools today to impact the design and manufacturing process more easily as part of their existing workflows. Keeping factories running with AI-powered automation software engineering Siemens and Microsoft are also collaborating to help software developers and automation engineers accelerate the code generation for Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), the industrial computers that control most machines across the world's factories. At Hannover Messe, the companies are demonstrating a concept for how OpenAI's ChatGPT and other Azure AI services can augment Siemens' industrial automation engineering solutions. The showcase will highlight how engineering teams can significantly reduce time and the probability of errors by generating PLC code through natural language inputs. These capabilities can also enable maintenance teams to identify errors and generate step-by-step solutions more quickly. "Powerful, advanced artificial intelligence is emerging as one of the most important technologies for digital transformation," said Cedrik Neike, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO Digital Industries. "Siemens and Microsoft are coming together to deploy tools like ChatGPT so we can empower workers at enterprises of all sizes to collaborate and innovate in new ways." Finding and preventing product defects with industrial AI Detecting defects in production early is critical to prevent costly and time-consuming production adjustments. Industrial AI like computer vision enables quality management teams to scale quality control, identify product variances easier and make real-time adjustments even faster. In Hanover, teams will demonstrate how, using Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and Siemens' Industrial Edge, images captured by cameras and videos can be analyzed by machine learning systems and used to build, deploy, run and monitor AI vision models on the shop floor. This collaboration is part of the longstanding strategic relationship between Siemens and Microsoft, built on over 35 years of joint innovation with thousands of customers. Other areas of collaboration include Senseye on Azure, enabling companies to run predictive maintenance at enterprise scale and support for customers that seek to host their business applications in the Microsoft Cloud to run solutions from the Siemens Xcelerator open digital business platform, including Teamcenter, on Azure. Siemens is also partnering with Microsoft as part of its zero trust strategy.
