Visual Factories was one of only two companies invited to represent Israel’s industrial innovation to the Advanced Manufacturing delegation from Brazil. The delegation visited Israel in order to meet and learn new methods and technologies that contribute to improved productivity in production, and to keep Brazil’s manufacturing competitive in the global arena.
The event, hosted by the Israeli ministry of Economy and Industry, was held in trendy SOSA offices. SOSA is a global network of tech innovation hubs with a unique, approach to innovation and were proud to take part in the event.
“The Brazilian Government’s goal to increase the industrial productivity, efficiency and competitiveness, is a great match with Visual Factory’s PIM software solution” says Nataly Turgeman, VP of Sales and Marketing at Visual Factories. “I wish to thank Mr. Marcos Pereria, the Brazilian Minister of State of Industry Foreign trade and services, and the entire esteemed delegation for their attention and keen interest.”
Nataly continues: “I presented PIM, our Production Improvement Management system to the delegation. I had explained how production factories can use PIM to become significantly more efficient. Specifically, to optimize the machine utilization rate while monitoring and controlling the cost per part and measuring the gross profit improvements. Brazil has a large number of production plants with a variety of machine ages and control methods. The delegation was particularly interested in PIM’s ability to connect with any machine using any protocol and even with machines that are not controlled by a PLC. Compared with other solutions in the market, they viewed PIM as both flexible and low cost. There could be a true opportunity here for both sides – the Brazilian government can offer its factories a useful solution to increase productivity. Visual factories can gain a strong ally across the ocean. We look forward to continued communication and cooperation.”
