Ellistat, publisher of production control and control solutions, and Cetim, a Carnot-labelled Mechanical Technological Institute, signed a memorandum of understanding at the international exhibition for machine turning tools (Simodec) to share information and expertise in order to offer mechanical manufacturers optimized monitoring and control solutions, dedicated to their production activities such as machining of metallic materials.
For an initial period of seven months, Cetim and Ellistat will put their complementary skills at the service of manufacturers, offering them solutions in process optimization, monitoring and control, dedicated to their machining activities, initially.
This synergy will allow both parties to share their respective know-how to optimize the integration of software solutions specific to each industrial problem. And this, thanks to support adapted to each production environment, with its business and human components, a guarantee of putting into practice new work habits that will contribute to better competitiveness, in complete autonomy.
Many manufacturers will be able to benefit from this rapprochement, starting with manufacturers in the "serial machining" profession with which Cetim conducts R&D actions, focused on its needs for continuous improvement and the search for competitiveness, at a time when industrial sectors are in full economic recovery post COVID.
SME mechanics helped by the regions in their ecological and energy transition will also be able to benefit from this rapprochement, by bringing new working methodologies in terms of monitoring and steering their production units by machining.
Finally, mechanical engineering companies invested in their 4.0 transformation will use such industrial monitoring/control solutions, in order to remain competitive.
A common demonstrator is operational at the ID Center (Cluses). It will be a presentation and testing tool around the parameterization, the operation of monitoring / control solutions. Integrated into a set of means of production, this demonstrator will have the following objectives:
- To make manufacturers aware of the interest of such a solution in a production environment,
- To carry out specific feasibility tests, in terms of interface and machine connections, in order to validate architectures that can be transposed to industrial recipients.
Pilot projects at industrial applicants will be carried out and will allow the installation and integration of a specific solution, accompanied by an evaluation.
"We chose to work with Ellistat because of the performance of their particularly innovative and interesting solutions for mechanical engineering manufacturers. It was obvious to us to pool our expertise and field knowledge," says Olivier Burel, Cetim, Director of the Cluses site.
"Ellistat's goal, whose solutions are unique on the market, is to become the leader in managing machining activities in an industrial context undergoing a rapid transformation of 4.0," said Davy Pillet, President of Ellistat. This agreement with Cetim will allow us to rely on the Centre's recognized business expertise in machining and its reputation among manufacturers. »
Together at the trade fair for turning and precision mechanical manufacturing, Cetim's experts welcome manufacturers to conferences on employment, sustainable development devices and innovation, on the STAND of ID Center partners (Stand n°M13, Hall B1) until 11 March 2022.
