For Immediate Release
17th June 2010
123 Insight Ltd (Southampton, UK) and fellow software developer JETCAM International s.a.r.l. (Monaco) today announced a partnership with composite manufacturers Synergy Composites (Altham, Lancs) whereby an ‘Open Manufacturing Centre of Excellence’ has been created.
The facility is used for Synergy’s day-to-day business, but will also be available for companies to visit by appointment to see the latest technologies and processes in force.
123insight Manufacturing Enterprise Management software is being implemented, and covers the complete workflow from quote generation through to invoicing. It also provides tight integration into JETCAM Expert’s orders and materials databases. Once orders are placed within 123insight they are immediately processed by JETCAM’s RCP (Remote Control Processing) system. Relevant geometry files are located and nested, with NC code immediately available on the shopfloor. RCP then reports the status back to 123insight .
JETCAM Expert CAM and nesting software is used to automatically process CAD files and to generate highly optimised nests, ready for cutting. It is also integrated into JETCAM’s material life, order and nest management suite which provides complete traceability of material from initial delivery, time in and out of the freezer, through to individual plies and finally the finished part. Staff can obtain realtime information on orders, nests, ply/part information and material across the network.
Both JETCAM Expert and 123insight have received industry recognition and have won awards for their ability to deliver a fast return on investment due to the quantifiable savings they deliver.
Martin Bailey, Marketing Manager for JETCAM International s.a.r.l. commented; “We believe that Synergy started correctly from day one with the mindset of a much larger organisation, knowing that investment in automation at the start will allow the company to grow while maintaining control. JETCAM delivers this control on the shopfloor while providing live manufacturing management information enterprise-wide. The integration with 123insight builds on this to provide a seamless and paperless information flow.”
Guy Amoroso, MD for 123 Insight Ltd added; “With the existing integration that 123insight and JETCAM customers already enjoy, Synergy now have a complete, automated and paperless path with full traceability. We are delighted to be providing a solution and working with what we believe will become a flagship manufacturing centre in the North West.”
Lee Moffatt, Operations Director for Synergy Composites noted; “We selected JETCAM because of their track record in the composites industry. Material is expensive and difficult to come by, so every saving we make gives us a competitive advantage. We wanted a high level of automation from the start and the combination of JETCAM and 123insight delivers this in full.”
Synergy Composites are an advanced composite manufacturer, who through the nature of their industry identified a requirement to control all aspects of their organisation from prospective customers all the way through manufacture and dispatch of goods. It was also essential that all manufacturing data was collected and utilised to implement business improvements and provide customers with a proven capability. Therefore the company saw it as a natural step to implement the full complement of integrated systems from 123insight and JETCAM providing what can be described as a centre of excellence.
