Industrial machinery solutions

Improve manufacturing productivity

Find industrial machinery manufacturing solutions that reduce development time, minimize errors and ensure consistent quality.

Design and implement smart, agile production lines and automation solutions more quickly by using the digital twin and simulation tools.

  • Simulate and optimize flexible manufacturing processes
  • Maximize machine shop efficiency and quality
  • Ramp up faster with virtual commissioning tools

Industrial machinery manufacturing solutions achieve:


Higher production efficiency

Simulate an existing production line with cycling processes and batch processes, and use the data to minimize downtime and maximize output. (HCM)


Faster root cause identification time

Integrate data collection into production machines to reduce the time it takes to find a defect from a few weeks to a few hours. (Meccanotecnica Umbra)


Shorter on-site commissioning time

Accelerate time-to-delivery with virtual commissioning. Virtual commissioning also improves performance, mitigates risks and cuts rework in half. (Wipro PARI)

Frequently asked questions

Industrial machinery manufacturing is the process of creating machines, equipment or parts, typically for use in commercial manufacturing settings; for example, creating a machine that can produce soda bottles.

To achieve operational efficiency in manufacturing, businesses should embrace digital tools that augment manufacturing planning, execution, and optimization. A smart manufacturing solution provides the foundation for improving the factory environment.

Businesses can reduce production costs through several means: a digital twin can plan for specific expenditures; an integrated MES-PLM system can circumvent expensive bottlenecks, and closed-loop data tools can suggest cost-reducing improvements.

To improve production line efficiency, an agile MES is key. A flexible MES makes it possible to align on requirements, regulations, and quality, in turn optimizing factory-wide processes and making it easier to execute quickly on the shop floor.

Closed-loop tools are fundamental to improving product quality. Closed-loop tools capture global machine and factory data via edge-sharing devices and the Internet of Things; AI and ML then decode this data, suggesting quality and performance improvements.

By securely integrating your IT and OT systems, you'll gain valuable insights into machines and parts across every production site. In turn, you can act on this data, implementing improvements that reduce worldwide quality issues in manufacturing.
