Atlas Composites, UK-based composites parts manufacturer, has announced major improvements in manufacturing optimisation and efficiencies by deploying Plataine’s Industrial IoT solution. Atlas, which supplies a variety of industries like aerospace, motorsports, defence, and space, aspired to upgrade its manufacturing operations for rapid growth.

Particularly important requirements included the need to digitise operations and improve factory floor visibility while maintaining its first-class reputation for on-time delivery. The Plataine solution enabled Atlas Composites to meet all objectives as well as improve quality control, reduce waste and drive labour efficiency, according to a media statement by the company.

Plataine was selected due to its strong track record of successful deployments in the composite parts manufacturing sector, and thanks to its globally recognised proficiency at IIoT and AI for manufacturing. Plataine’s technology collects factory sensor data and delivers real-time tracking and visibility of critical assets such as tools, kits, machines, and time-sensitive raw material. Monitoring and managing the facility’s 1,300 tools eliminates production delays caused by missing tools, and recommend optimal time for maintenance, based on AI and analytics of actual usage.

Plataine’s IIoT-based solution also reduces material waste by ensuring the optimal raw materials are always selected for the suitable job, and that time-sensitive material rolls are tracked in real-time when they move in & out of storage. AI-based digital assistants offer predictive alerts, actionable insights and real-time recommendations to staff, allowing them to further optimise their operations and deal with production challenges even before they occur. Meanwhile, all production data is stored forming a digital thread, a record of the entire production process, from raw material to end-product. Additionally, process automation reduces human error and allows more efficient use of labour by freeing up skilled workers from mundane tasks such as manual calculations and paperwork.

“We selected Plataine after comprehensively surveying the market for innovative Industry 4.0 solution providers. Plataine’s solution is an important milestone of our digital transformation journey and will help us shorten manufacturing cycles and improve our operations and quality control,” Lloyd Pearson, managing director at Atlas Composites said

“The cutting-edge processes at Atlas Composites, which operates in some of the world’s most demanding and fast-changing industries, are impressive. Atlas must constantly adapt new technologies to keep ahead of the competition, and I am confident Plataine’s technology will enable them to maintain their market-leading position,” Avner Ben-Bassat, president and CEO of Plataine said.
