At­las Copco, a world-lead­ing provider of sus­tain­able pro­duc­tiv­ity so­lu­tions, has made its con­tri­bu­tion called the Smart Con­nected Assem­bly to In­dus­try 4.0. With this new ini­tia­tive, the group plans to ad­dress the in­creas­ing de­mands of high-qual­ity prod­ucts and new tech­nolo­gies, which will of­fer flex­i­bil­ity, data an­a­lyt­ics, er­gonomics, and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency. The Swe­den-based com­pany makes com­pres­sors, vac­uum so­lu­tions and air treat­ment sys­tems, con­struc­tion and min­ing equip­ment, etc.

“Smart Con­nected Assem­bly is about cre­at­ing unique value by con­nect­ing to­gether all the assem­bly-re­lated pro­cesses. Assem­bly so­lu­tions are net­worked to each other and in­te­grated into the pro­duc­tion net­work. The data gen­er­ated is the new raw ma­te­rial used when con­trol­ling and iden­ti­fy­ing im­prove­ment ar­eas in and be­tween the assem­bly pro­cesses,” Bhavin Pandya, Gen­eral Man­ager, At­las Copco (In­dia) Ltd, said.

This Smart Con­nected Assem­bly can be sum­marised into six pil­lars of value, a frame­work cre­ated by the firm. They are, in­creased up­time, re­duc­tion in de­fects (by er­ror-proof­ing), new prod­uct in­tro­duc­tion (im­prov­ing time to mar­ket), im­proved pro­duc­tiv­ity, hu­man fac­tors, and re­duc­tion in en­ergy use. The cur­rent launch is for se­lect cus­tomers in and around Pune (by in­vi­ta­tion). The com­pany will roll out the same soon to other re­gions across In­dia.
