Lantek increases sales thanks to software solutions


Rob_Powell,Lantek_UKMetal industry software provider Lantek has increased sales volumes increase by 14% in the first half of 2015, boosting demand for software solutions by 50%, according to Machinery News.

According to the british company, this growth is a glimpse of the sector’s future: increased efficiency through automation and intelligent systems that will help companies to carry out increasingly complex work processes with more flexible production to react to the changing market needs.

“Companies are increasingly convinced that a comprehensive solution from one manufacturer increases productivity, efficiency and quality,” says Lantek sales manager Rob Powell. To start with, most companies use certain modules of the comprehensive software program, and later realise the potential of investing in a comprehensive solution that automates and coordinates processes, using staff, machines, and equipment as efficiently as possible. Lantek modules cover processes ranging from receiving and quoting offers to managing and purchasing equipment, creating or importing and editing geometries, creating processes, nests and CNC codes to cutting sheet metal and steel, to identifying individual parts or remnants as well as controlling and managing invoices.

Lantek allows users to synchronise and optimise all sheet metal and steel transformation processes. Lantek software offers interfaces to more than 1,000 different types of sheet and steel metal processing machines. Special modules are focused on the special requirements of the automotive, aerospace, wind turbine construction, agricultural machinery or retail sectors.
