Magic Software's Magic xpi brings Industry 4.0 to Swiss manufacturer
March 13, 2017 – Magic Software Enterprises, a provider of software platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business integration, announced that Assa Abloy AG, the Swiss global leader in locking systems and security technology, has put the Magic xpi Integration Platform at the heart of the company’s new fully automated manufacturing system for its KESO keys. The Industry 4.0 solution enables faster and more efficient production.
To digitize the manufacturing process, Assa Abloy replaced 20 separate drilling machines previously used on the production line with two new digital drilling machines. While the old system required machine operators to manually enter data using job boards, the new automatically feeds the machine the relevant data based on the bar code. The Magic xpi Integration Platform merges relevant information from the company’s Infor ERP, custom-made Production Information System based on MS Dynamics CRM, and proprietary Lock Management System into an XML file, which is read by the digital machines. The digital manufacturing process has dramatically shortened turnaround time from job placement to delivery, enabling Assa Abloy to deliver customized products faster and more reliably.
"Magic xpi proved to be an ideal integration solution to complete the project quickly and easily. Its code-free drag and drop approach and prebuilt MS Dynamics connector reduced development time and enabled us easily connect the data and business processes the way we wanted," states Erwin Fuchs, Business Development Manager at Assa Abloy (Switzerland) AG. “Magic’s integration solution stands at the center of our Industry 4.0 landscape, providing us with a sustainable competitive advantage that can be expanded in the future.”
