SMARTPM returns to MetalMadrid 2022 with an attractive proposal

This year, SMARTPM will once again be present as an exhibitor at the 14th edition of MetalMadrid, the event of reference in industrial transformation. We present the latest advances of the automation platform MIC automation platform, awarded at BIEMH, and the new solution METAFLEX150 nominated for the Best Automation and Robotics Process.

The major trade fair event, now under the umbrella of the Advanced Manufacturing Madrid brand, will hold its 14th edition on only two days: October 19 and 20, 2022 at IFEMA.

With more than 600 exhibitors, we encourage you to reserve a moment to visit SMARTPM booth 4B06 and learn how our solutions can improve a production line. We have prepared everything to make it a useful and stimulating visit.

Our news at MetalMadrid 2022

In this issue we present the new features incorporated into MIC, our automation solution for the machining industry. recently awarded with a 2022 Innovation Award..

Real-time virtual simulation of our MIC solution

Those who visit us will have the possibility not only to "see and touch" a real cell in our booth, but also to have a digital immersion in the production cell installed in our Factory Lab through virtual reality.

Virtualware, with whom we collaborate in the R2M with whom we collaborate in the R2M Projectvisitors to MetalMadrid will be able to try with virtual reality glasses a clear example of virtual commissioning in practice , i.e., they will be able to send a signal from the real world to the virtual world with this device.

The simulation capability built into the MIC platform is a key feature for efficiency gains.

The simulation of production cells allows us to anticipate problems and accelerate the implementation of MIC, significantly minimizing the impact on the daily operations of the workshop and facilitating the training of the operating personnel.

Remote management with control panel

The cell we present has remote management capabilities, allowing not only the visualization of the process and its KPIs, but also the launching of manufacturing processes.

At the same time, visitors to our booth will be able to see how this remote management also allows the operation of our Factory Lab cell, accessing via streaming to the execution of machining processes in real time.

This functionality facilitates the centralization of the management of "dispersed" cells in the production line, thus increasing the possibilities of synergies and knowledge management.

Datamatrix (QR) reader to manage the traceability of parts

The autonomous QR reader is another of MIC's novelties. This edition will show the capabilities of the MIC in the management of traceability of parts, tools, etc., etc. 

The cell will include a datamatrix reading device operated autonomously by the MIC and leveraging the handling capabilities through the robotic arm to operate completely autonomously.

This functionality, in addition to being key to managing the life cycle of tools and tooling, improves the productivity of the production plant. By operating autonomously, MIC optimizes asset availability and reduces wasted time due to the non-location of key elements in the processes. 

The Factory of the Future Tour stops at SMARTPM

One of Metalmadrid's successful formulas is back: the Innovation Tours, an opportunity to visit the best innovations of the fair for an hour. In 2021 we were included by our MIC platform and this year SMARTPM is again selected by METAFLEX150.

The SMARTPM booth will be one of the stops of the Factory of the Future Tour (this year there are 4 different tours organized for October 19 at 10:30 am. Seating is limited and you can reserve your place online. This is a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about 11 process solutions in one hour.

In this 2022 edition, the METAFLEX intelligent storage system METAFLEX that we have just launched on the market has been chosen as one of the best innovations of the fair in digitization, automation and robotics.

METAFLEX nominated for Advanced Manufacturing Awards

One of the most outstanding novelties at this year's MetalMadrid is the 1st edition of the Advanced Manufacturing Awards. The fair wants to recognize with these awards companies that create products and solutions that help improve any phase of the value chain of a company, making them more efficient, more sustainable and connected.

SMARTPM competes in the "Best Automation and Robotics Process" category as a supplier of METAFLEX150, our autonomous warehouse management and machine feeding solution.

In total there are 36 finalists in 8 categories. A jury of industry experts and the popular vote (whose weight will be 20% in the final results) will choose the winners, which will be announced on October 19 in the afternoon. 

You will find us at:

IFEMA Pavilion 4, stand: 4B06. Free registration.
