Apr. 2nd, 2020, Tel-Aviv, Israel – Plataine, a leading provider of Industrial IoT (IIoT) and AI-based software for advanced manufacturing optimization, is excited to announce that it joined the membership network of The National Composites Centre (NCC), the UK research center providing access to cutting-edge technologies to drive innovation. Together, they will present further opportunities on performing digital transformation of advanced manufacturing processes.
The NCC is bringing together composites’ experts and leading manufacturers, and as part of the partnership, Plataine will be able to access NCC’s world leading facilities to implement its Industrial IoT, AI-based solutions, creating a test environment of the factory of the future. NCC will implement Plataine’s Intelligent Digital Assistants, which integrate factory floor machines’, systems’ and sensor data, to drive AI-based alerts and optimized recommendations to production floor staff.
Announcing the partnership, Avner Ben-Bassat, CEO & President at Plataine said: “We are excited and proud to join the NCC and are looking forward to be working with a team that shares the NCC’s commitment and vision to deliver cutting edge technology to the industry.
Marc Funnell, Head of Digital at the National Composites Centre, added: “As world-leaders in composite research, the NCC provide state-of-the-art capabilities for industry. We’re excited by this new membership that will enable the NCC to apply AI technology and data science techniques to gain a much more comprehensive understanding of composite processes. This will ultimately demonstrate the potential of digitally enabled manufacturing to produce parts more efficiently whilst maintaining the highest level of quality”.
