iBASEt Launches Digital Manufacturing Suite Providing the Foundation of Digital Transformation for Discrete Manufacturers

New solution paves the way for advanced analytics, digital thread, IIoT, automated inspection and augmented reality

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif - February 20, 2018 - iBASEt, a leading provider of digital manufacturing, MRO and quality software solutions, announced today that it has launched a new Digital Manufacturing Suite to deliver the foundation needed for Digital transformation of manufacturing operations. The suite includes an updated version of the flagship Solumina solution adapted to work with new platform connectivity and apps. The expanded suite includes new applications for manufacturing intelligence, compliance management, and enterprise business systems connectivity.

iBASEt's Digital Manufacturing Suite is designed for complex, highly regulated discrete manufacturers who seek to digitally transform their operations. The new solution enables a "digital thread," connecting operations and sustainment management in a seamless flow of data across the value chain and product lifecycle. The Suite integrates engineering and business systems to manufacturing operations management (MOM), supplier quality management (SQM), and product sustainment services such as maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).

The combination of integrated PLM, ERP and iBASEt's Digital Manufacturing Suite are central to a digital manufacturing strategy. iBASEt's solution creates the technology infrastructure manufacturers need to harness advances in model-based functionality like augmented reality guidance for the workforce, IIoT connectivity for the equipment, new levels of intelligence for decision making, and higher levels of customer and supply chain collaboration.

"The digital revolution is breaching the walls of manufacturing with a wave of new data acquisition and processing capabilities that will transform the entire manufacturing value chain from R&D, supply chain, factory operations, marketing and sales, and service," said Naveen Poonian, Chief Operating Officer at iBASEt. "Our strategy to support manufacturers in their quest to digitally transform operations is making it possible to harness the power of distributive technologies and drive manufacturer's digital transformation strategies to reality."

"Our new suite of solutions fills an operations, quality, and product services management gap in the digital ecosystem and leads the way to realization of digital manufacturing in the complex discrete manufacturing industry," added Poonian.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
