Lantek devises a profitable solution for HVAC companies by automatically calculating designs
The largest manufacturing companies in the air conditioning and ventilation sector are among Lantek’s 15,000 clients.
Lantek, a global leader in the development, application, and sale of software solutions for the metal industry, has emerged as a leader in the HVAC sector. An increasing number of companies in this industry rely on Lantek to provide a solution that optimizes their resources and production.
Lantek offers users a wide array of software products that streamline production processes and speed up the implementation of their machinery, which in turn lowers costs and increases profits. The design of hot and cold thermal insulation systems, and of suction, air conditioning and ventilation ducts and heaters and coolers can be improved by applying Lantek's smart solutions.
The success of Lantek Expert Duct stands out among the products sold by the company. This powerful module for automatically laying out shapes for metal fabrication is used by all companies in the sector working with Lantek solutions. Data can be entered in a practical and simple way into this consolidated system, which then automatically calculates the design. Users can automatically generate designs and handle shapes more quickly by applying this software, which includes a 2D CAD module for designing any piece, as well as for modifying its geometry or layout.
The HVAC companies that have chosen this solution are very satisfied and find the results achieved to be optimal. Lantek Expert Duct is designed to calculate the weight and cutting perimeters of the pieces and the costs of the materials used. It is offered as a version that can automatically connect to an ERP, operate independently, or be installed on a local network.
The HVAC industry is a pioneer in technological advances related to the environment, comfort, the technological efficiency of machinery and installations, and energy efficiency. In this context, Lantek's specialized software technology provides key benefits to the sector by facilitating, improving, and ensuring customized production that meets the needs of each client. These companies' chief need is for groundbreaking systems that make designing the pieces they require easier and that, in addition to streamlining processes, ensure optimal results in systems. Lantek has deployed its full force to give satisfactory solutions to the needs of the sector, which is already benefiting from the multinational's technological advances and smart solutions.
In addition to Lantek Expert Duct, a key element in this design and manufacturing process, Lantek offers the professionals of this sector the following specific products: Lantek Expert Cut, Lantek Expert Punch, Lantek Flex3d Addins, Lantek Flex3d Tubes and Masterlink. All were developed with the goal of reducing costs, improving production processes, and designing pieces that perfectly match systems. They are yielding optimal results for companies that have already implemented them in their production systems.
Innovation is, without question, one of the foundational principles of Lantek. The HVAC sector has a special need for this type of solution, since its complex idiosyncrasy requires the continual improvement and development of its systems, a field in which Lantek has provided successful solutions since its inception.
Lantek provides software solutions CAD/CAM/MES/ERP for companies fabricating sheet metal, tubes, and beams with any cutting (laser, plasma, oxy-cut, water jet, shear) and punching technology. Lantek integrates the most advanced nesting software in the industry with the highest standards in manufacturing management solutions. Its capacity for innovation and its firm commitment to internationalization and emerging markets have led Lantek, founded in 1986 in the Basque Country and with central offices in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Alava), to devise a global-local strategy, which has meant it has become a global reference within the industry with its CAD/CAM/MES/ERP solutions. Today, the company has over 15,000 customers in over 100 countries and its own offices in 15 countries, in addition to an extensive network of distributors that are present throughout the world. In 2014 its international operations provided 85% of its turnover.
