Vention’s cloud-based machine design platform is taking further steps to close the production process by equipping its MachineBuilder with the ability to automatically create custom plastic panels based on surrounding geometries.
Partnering with Groups PolyAlto, the software will be able to design and order cut-to-size plastic panels for delivery within 48 hours of order confirmation – removing all of the traditional steps of 3D design, manual quoting, CAD file exchange and order processing.
It’s a small part of the workflow, but the portfolio of products offered in this way is expected to grow – already Groupe PolyAlto supports nine different plastic materials through this digitally integrated workflow.
“The digital integration with Groupe PolyAlto represents a first step in making Vention’s MachineBuilder a highspeed design and purchasing platform for modular as well as custom industrial equipment,” says Vention founder and CEO Etienne Lacroix.
“It is with great enthusiasm that Groupe PolyAlto offers its expertise and products to all of Vention’s customers. Our wide array of technical plastic materials adds safety, protection, aesthetic properties and durability to all Vention-designed equipment,” added Mathieu Goulet, director of manufacturing at Groupe PolyAlto.
