Today, Bright Machines™ began delivering its vision of integrating software and artificial intelligence (AI) into every phase of the manufacturing cycle with the introduction of vivid Machines Microfactories.

 

The new Bright Machines Microfactories combine software, machine learning, computer vision, and adaptive robotics into an automation platform that boosts the way merchandise are built and scrutinized, as those are the most manual steps of today's production lines. Microfactories take benefit of AI and cloud-based architecture to deliver improved assembly efficiency while acquiring more intelligent and automated over time.

 

"The manufacturing industry is looking for its next leap forward and a software-defined approach to factory automation answers this need," said Amar Hanspal, CEO, Bright Machines. "Key to unlocking the promise of intelligent automation is the connection of individual machines to an AI-powered software layer that configures, monitors and manages machines and operations, creating programmable and autonomous factories. We call this approach Software-Defined Manufacturing."

 

Software-Defined Manufacturing

 

Software-Defined Manufacturing leverages computer vision, machine learning and adaptive robotics and paves the way for wise production lines and fully-programmable factories. Software-Defined Manufacturing makes it easier to configure, replicate and scale automation, dramatically changing the economics, speed and flexibility of one of the world's largest industries. By digitizing factory operations, Software-Defined Manufacturing makes them more transparent and accessible, enabling the rest of an organization to interact with its manufacturing operations with ease. This also enables agility and nonstop enhancement for the product manufacturing process.

Today, Bright Machines is offering a important element of this automated future with the introduction of software-defined microfactories for product assembly and assessment. These new microfactories bring to life Bright Machines' vision of Software-Defined Manufacturing, with factories developing "brighter," programmable and more automated over time. Bright Machines Microfactories are made up of the following integrated elements that, together, provide a modern, AI-powered approach to automation:

 

Brightware™ cloud-based software for design, simulation, and preparation of the setup and guidance used to setup and run any number of physical production assembly lines. Brightware includes factory applications that intelligently monitor, track, and manage the line for optimal manufacturing performance.

Bright Robotic Cells (BRC) pre-integrated and production-ready modular units, based on adaptive robotics technology, that can be set up to meet the manufacturing needs of the product being assembled. Brightware, together with a plug-and-play library of accessories, can literally transform the same set of BRCs into very assorted, highly-specialized assembly microfactories.

Bright Machines Microfactories, available straight away, automate automation and can be integrated twice as fast as present assembly lines. The intelligent, connected microfactories also greatly enhance Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) particularly production throughput and yield, driving to a lower cost per unit. Bright Machines will carry on to deliver enhanced artificial intelligence capabilities, enabling microfactories to become more intelligent over time.
