Lantek Partners with Belgian Balliu

Lantek is collaborating with Balliu, a Belgian manufacturer of laser cutting machines for sheet metal, to provide its customers with management and process digitalization solutions (Industry 4.0). The objective is to help them on their path towards digital transformation to evolve technologically towards advanced manufacturing.

The sheet metal sector is going through a stage of great changes, which is driving companies to interconnect machines, processes and plants globally using digital technologies. A high level of connectivity and integration provides a large amount of data and allows manufacturers to see production needs in real time, as well as to anticipate possible errors and carry out more efficient maintenance. The tangible benefits of having connected factories include a decrease in costs and an increase in productivity and efficiency. Companies that do not go digital in the next 3-5 years are likely to be shut out of the market.

Lantek’s mission is to promote and help the digital transformation of companies in our sector, accompanying them in this transition and adapting to their different states of digital maturity. The specific advanced manufacturing solutions developed by Lantek are exclusive for the sheet metal sector.
