ANCA aims for integrated manufacturing

October 14, 2022 - 07:00am

In this video, users can see how to connect, automate and create with ANCA’s Integrated Manufacturing System (AIMS). The system is ANCA’s holistic solution for connecting tool manufacturing steps for greater efficiency and quality. Integrated manufacturing delivers new levels of automation and data management.

Its flexible modular solutions allow users to start small with one machine and add-on to find the best solutions for manufacturing challenges. 

AIMS offers functionality that is adaptable to each factory’s needs; from smaller-scale, data-based options to the full AIMS setup across a series of machines with "endless possibilities," according to the company.

Central to any AIMS system is the AIMS Server that manages data flow between the elements of the AIMS system and established IT platforms, such as an ERP system.

Building on this, customers can choose from a suite of “auto” solutions for reducing production costs, resolving labor challenges and integrating systems to improve product and process quality. From transferring tools between operations with AutoFetch robot options; fully automated tool measurement and process compensation using AutoComp; and managing data via the AutoSet hub - AIMS delivers streamlined manufacturing, with connected tool production processes integrated into IT systems that the company said take tool production to the next level.
