Alberto López de Biñaspre, CEO of Lantek, says: “The agreement reached with HSG is part of our policy of partnerships with sheet metal cutting technology manufacturers worldwide.”

Through these product integrations, the company seeks to boost and strengthen its relationships with partners and customers. Lantek currently has more than 100 cutting-machine manufacturing partners worldwide.

Under this agreement, HSG will make it possible to integrate the Lantek Expert CAD/CAM solution with its different fibre laser cutting machines, which are available in power outputs up to 12 kW.

“The sheet metal and fabrication sector is at a critical moment and must take a step towards digitalisation,” says López de Biñaspre. “To ensure they are not left behind, companies need to interconnect their machines, processes and plants around the world using technologies that allow them to meet production needs in real time, anticipate possible incidents and perform more efficient maintenance. The open, scalable and versatile nature of Lantek's software solutions makes this possible.

“At Lantek, we want to help companies in the sector with their digitalisation, adapting ourselves to their needs and different levels of digital maturity,” he continues. “We are continuing to focus on improving our customers’ competitiveness by anticipating their needs with value proposals that allow them to be more efficient and profitable in the digital ecosystem. In this regard, our offer of a cloud platform responds to the challenges posed by the digital transformation, making production processes far more efficient.”

Yang Liu, CEO of HSG, adds: "The integration of Lantek Expert software in our laser-cutting machines offers significant added value to customers. This solution makes it easier to optimise processes, shorten times and work efficiently.”
