Digitization in the production process is key to the future of machining

Digitization is one of the most important elements in the industry 4.0 and that machining should take advantage of its future and optimize its manufacturing processes. Digital transformation encompasses concepts such as: autonomous robots, mobility, robotic process automation, Internet of Things, Horizontal and vertical integration, Big Data & Artificial intelligence. What advantages do all these technologies bring to the machining sector??

More awareness of the importance of digitization in the sector of the machining

Most organizations believe that incorporating digitalization into their production processes would significantly increase productivity.. Thus, It is essential that employees are well trained and that companies in the machining know how to correctly manage talent, to deal with the efforts involved in the change towards digitization.

Where is digitization incorporated in the machining sector?? This technology is introduced appropriate to the process, to the product and business model. Automating the factory has advantages such as saving costs and increasing the quality of the products, It is also an excellent tool to collect data in the supply chain and be able to study improvements immediately..

The industry 4.0 It is also known as the digital revolution, a revolution that aims to reduce errors that occur in traditional processes. At the same time, It is a type of revolution that machining can apply in different parts of the process such as, for example, the making, resource management or distribution... This means greater benefits for companies and a flexibility that they did not have before.

Parts of the digitalization in the sector of the machining

First, digital manufacturing is important, where digitization has made systems much more flexible and efficient and, therefore, that contributes to the waiting times of the machining are considerably reduced. At the same time, Errors in the product are reduced and consequently the quality is increased. The maintenance part also improves thanks to the monitoring provided by digitization.

Another key part is the use of digital twins, that contribute to improve the quality and make a predictive maintenance of all the phases of the process of the machining. The difference between predictive maintenance and corrective maintenance, is that in the latter an error that has already occurred is corrected, while, in the predictive, makes an estimate of the life of a product based on the updated data obtained from it. This, again, provides an improvement in quality and a reduction in errors and production costs.

It is also essential to assume digitization, digital products. These elements contribute to a flexibility towards the client and a management of their processes, from the initial idea to the manufacturing process. It's more, with regard to digitized physical products, These are elements that are controlled at all times and that limit the risk assumed with the creation of new products from 0, as, improvements can be made on the basis of the piece we already have.

By last, and not least, We must highlight the digitization of the machining in your corporate field. Emphasis is given and the internal communication of the companies is improved and in turn, This improves external communication. All this will help to retain customers, because it will be easier to understand what they require and customize our products and services for them, depending on your needs.

Since Aspromec we help machining companies in their process of assuming the industry 4.0 in their productions. We offer personalized advice to be able to open up to new markets (both national and international) taking advantage of the latest digitization technologies provided by the sector.
