RewAir, a global provider of engineering services to the wind turbine supply chain, selected Plataine’s AI-based solution to optimize its wind blades production operations. RewAir will benefit from reduced production costs, improved material utilization rates and greater flexibility in its quoting and operational processes. Plataine’s AI based technology was chosen due to the company’s extensive experience at working with the wind energy sector, bringing value to its clients, and impacting the bottom line of the business. All this, while offering complete remote implementation and the strongest of aftersales support.
RewAir needed a flexible solution that allowed them to run an optimal production process on a variety of production lines. Their production lines operate three primary processes: “cut to package”, “cut to shelf” and a hybrid of the two. The flexibility of Plataine’s manufacturing optimization software was therefore a key consideration. Plataine’s FabricOptimizer allows RewAir to optimize mix of material and operational costs for each of their different production lines.
The seamless implementation process at RewAir was conducted entirely remotely. Plataine’s remote deployment option helps to maintain compliance with recent health regulations and reduces downtime during the rollout phase.
Jens Rewers, CEO of RewAir, says: “Plataine’s solution matches all our requirements and preferences to give us the most optimal production sequence in our various production lines. Plataine software runs various scenarios in a short time and offers the optimal cut plan. The result is improved material utilization and efficiency, leading to a significant reduction in costs, as well as increased production flexibility.”
Avner Ben-Bassat, President and CEO of Plataine adds, “We are very excited to work with RewAir, and we are confident that our solution will allow them to increase their material utilization and slash production costs. It’s great to be able to play our part in the wind industry, which is a critical component in the global agenda to minimize carbon emissions.”
