Gimatic global manufacturing network can manage the EOAT projects characterized by different engineering, manufacturing and installation locations. In particular, Gimatic can guarantee the project management continuity when the EOAT should be manufactured in the same country of the moldmaker to allow the trial execution before shipment and the installation in another one.
IMPORTANCE OF THE EOAT QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE
EOAT, as several production tools, are often considered as “priority 2” items in the Purchase Step, but their quality, performance and service characteristics give big competitive advantage on the production process efficiency values:
1) WORLDWIDE LOCAL SERVICE
20 subsidiaries and 30 dealers located worldwide, to support locally all the EOAT manufacturing steps (design, assembly, trial with molds, installation), even if they are executed in different countries and through mold maker interface.
Post sales service located and standardized worldwide, to support the customer also after eventual production equipment transfer. Products catalogue in 18 languages.
3) TRACEABILITY AND DATA MANAGEMENT
RFID and mold monitoring to keep production data under control, to prevent production stop or slowdown (predictive maintenance), to avoid crashes (poka-yoke), to speed up the robot programming and the spare parts ordering process.
