The company selects this solution to automate and optimize its composites cutting processes and then improve its manufacturing efficiencies through increased material yields and manufacturing throughput at Hitco’s Gardena, CA plant.

With this announcement, Hitco also deepens its partnership with the Israeli industry. Plataine’s Total Production Optimization (TPO) solution offers composite component manufacturers a fully integrated solution for dynamic optimization and tracking of the composites structure manufacturing processes, from the Freezer to the Autoclave.

Seamlessly integrated to the manufacturer's ERP, CAD and Production Floor systems, TPO creates ready-to‐cut production plans by optimally selecting the composite materials to use and generating the optimal production plan. TPO achieves this by matching the order due date, order quantity, actual material expiration date and size (width & length) while considering the full order plan for additional optimization opportunities.

Additionally, TPO drives significant cost savings and increased productivity by offering higher material utilization, better inventory management and faster ‐ more flexible ‐ time to market.
