HITCO selects Plataine's Total Production Optimization FabricOptimizer to automate and optimize its composites cutting processes

HITCO Carbon Composites, a subsidiary of SGL Group – the Carbon Company and Plataine Technologies Ltd. have announced HITCO's selection of Plataine's Total Production Optimizer (TPO) FabricOptimizerTM solution to improve its manufacturing efficiencies through increased material yields and manufacturing throughput at HITCO's Gardena, CA plant.

With this announcement, HITCO also deepens its partnership with the Israeli industry as described by HITCO's President, Dave Kucharski: "Plataine's solution will increase our competitiveness through tangible savings in raw material and improved throughput, and will thus help us manage rising production cost pressures. This agreement is set to be the first of many with Israeli‐based companies as we continue to develop partnerships with local best‐in-class component suppliers and technology vendors.”

Plataine's Total Production Optimization (TPO) solution offers composite component manufacturers a fully integrated solution for dynamic optimization and tracking of the composites structure manufacturing processes, from the Freezer to the Autoclave. Seamlessly integrated to the manufacturer's ERP, CAD and Production Floor systems, TPO creates ready-to‐cut production plans by optimally selecting the composite materials to use and generating the optimal production plan. TPO achieves this by matching the order due date, order quantity, actual material expiration date and size (width & length) while considering the full order plan for additional optimization opportunities.

Additionally, TPO drives significant cost savings and increased productivity by offering higher material utilization, better inventory management and faster ‐ more flexible ‐ time to market. TPO further reduces costs by automating routine manual tasks and eliminating any errors associated with them.

“We are excited about our partnership with HITCO and proud to have met their highly demanding and extensive due diligence process. Plataine's TPO solution is the natural match for HITCO's well‐known leadership in production automation. Their selection highlights our technological and market excellence,” says Plataine's President and CEO, Avner Ben‐Bassat.
