100% control over all resources, machines, operating aids and employees
Companies in the cable processing industry are face growing challenges in terms of quality and efficiency of production as the complexity of the products increases. Therefore iTAC brought an MES on the market which is specially geared to those sectoral specifics. It ensures end-to-end transparency in all production areas of wire processing while simultaneously boosting productivity and quality.
The requirements placed on the quality of wire harnesses and wire connections in automobiles will continue to rise because the number of electronic components in the vehicle is increasing and these components are taking on more and more functions critical to safety. The products being made will be more complicated to process due to the miniaturization of contact elements. New materials will be used while the cost pressure on the products will continue to rise.
iTAC's MES helps the market participants to overcome these challenges. Its broad range of functions enables to control and optimize wire-specific processes in production. This system possesses the corresponding technological and functional intelligence required in the wire processing industry for the use of a modern MES.
The end-to-end solution is designed for the entire supply chain of wire processing companies- from incoming goods to all production processes to shipping. The MES is a full-scale ME system for controlling the entire range of wire harness production: machines, manual workplaces, operating aids, material flow, resources. It enables wire harness manufacturers to produce their complex products on time in the desired quality while making optimum use of the materials and of the tangible and intangible resources. The machine specifics can be depicted in detail, which means a product can be produced exactly to specification.
Combined know-how for a smart solution
For the development of the MES iTAC and the leading manufacturer of innovative, high quality solutions for wire processing, Komax Wire, combined their know-how. Through the bundling of the competencies of the two companies, the resulting MES has specific functions that fulfill the requirements of the wire processing industry to a T. The solution is scalable and customizable, so it can be adjusted to meet customer needs. At the same time, it can be used by companies of different sizes; in other words, by small and medium sized enterprises as well as large corporations.
The MES has a unique standing in the wire processing market owing to these facts as well as to its modules for order planning and manufacturing optimization that are sector specific and Industry 4.0 capable, and to its business intelligence for use in wire processing.
