Leading Oral Health Product Manufacturer, Ultradent, Takes Steps to the Future with Critical Manufacturing MES

Ultradent Products, a private, US-based manufacturer of leading professional dental products, has selected Critical Manufacturing’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to enhance its manufacturing operations. Ultradent’s innovative products are trusted by dental professionals in the US and throughout the world to help improve oral health globally. Visit www.Ultradent.com.

Ultradent’s manufacturing facilities are highly vertically-integrated and incorporate many interdependent manufacturing capabilities, such as weighing and dispensing, mixing, injection molding, primary package filling, kitting, laboratory, CNC machining, assembly, printing, and other specialized operations. There are many manual operations, as well as automated equipment and robotics throughout the operation to ensure efficiency and tight tolerances. Ultradent also has an ongoing robust pipeline of new, innovative products and product improvements at all times.

Ultradent adheres to good manufacturing practices, strict medical device practices, and pharmaceutical documentation standards. Each manufactured lot requires a unique batch or device history record to demonstrate that each product is manufactured in accordance with its design specification, or Device Master Record (DMR).

The new MES will provide fully electronic Batch Records (eBR) and electronic Device History Records (eDHR), including critical process parameters and critical quality attributes to streamline production while ensuring the highest product quality. While the MES eliminates paper in manufacturing, it will also enable shop floor to top floor visibility and provide actionable insights to manufacturing processes in order to support continuous process improvement.

The Critical Manufacturing MES is a state-of-the-art, highly-configurable and modular MES/MOM platform, designed to enable the benefits of a smart factory, based on the Industry 4.0 manufacturing model. The Critical Manufacturing MES is well-suited for medical device manufacturers, and with its special weigh and dispense capabilities, it is well-suited for both batch chemical formulations as well as discrete manufacturing. The MES will also integrate into existing PLM, ERP, LIMS, and control systems using very little code.

Chuck Anger, VP of Operations at Ultradent said: “The Critical Manufacturing MES will augment our vertically-integrated manufacturing operations at Ultradent. We want a path to the benefits that smart manufacturing offers. The new MES will enable us to increase efficiency, make adherence to quality procedures more robust, and reduce costly paperwork and manual interventions. We will be able to respond more quickly to customer demands and changing order requirements.”

Ultimately, the Critical Manufacturing MES will enable a smooth transition to Industry 4.0, allowing traditional production methods to run alongside smart, dynamic ones. By using real-time data and advanced analytics, continuous process improvements can be implemented, and with real-time analysis of process performance, quality can be built into all steps of the production line.

Mohamed Benkirane, VP Medical Device Practice for Critical Manufacturing said, “The use of electronic records and real-time data will help Ultradent both enhance quality and reduce costs. In addition, our advanced analysis and search tools will enable them to improve manufacturing processes and consistently learn from electronic records. Everyone will benefit – Ultradent, their customers, and their suppliers.”

The Critical Manufacturing MES functions will include recipe and specification management, weighing and dispensing, and manufacturing data acquisition, which will be fed into the eBR for batch chemistries and eDHR for discrete products. The system will give Ultradent a clear view of all shop floor processes with supervisory dashboards and real-time factory floor status.

Chuck Anger concluded, “After a long and well-engineered due diligence process, we selected Critical Manufacturing MES because of its modularity, inherent flexibility to support the many and varied processes we have, and its clear path to an Industry 4.0 production model. We also believe that working directly with the Critical Manufacturing team in Portugal to be an advantage during implementation and for years to come. Our company has grown year on year over the past four decades, but this investment is the start of a particularly exciting time for our business and one, I believe, that will be the cornerstone of our future innovation and growth.”

Valispace at Hannover Messe 2019

Valispace is a browser-based software that enables engineers to develop complex hardware more efficiently and cost-effectively. Discover the Valispace booth at Hannover Messe to find out how we are changing engineering to be less like “The Office” and more like “Iron Man”.

Funny Valispace video (2 min): “The Future of Engineering has Arrived”: https://youtu.be/f-SP-PsAXeI

Greater efficiency and lower costs in hardware development

The development of complex hardware products such as satellites, drones, robots, submarines and chemical facilities today involves thousands of documents, user manuals, test reports and interface data sheets – as was the case 40 years ago. Valispace was founded by aerospace engineers in a bid to put Excel engineering to the sword and drive digitalisation in hardware development. “If there are 20,000 official and 300,000 unofficial, inconsistent documents on a server for a single project, it’s not surprising that complex engineering projects are so expensive,” says co-founder and CEO Marco Witzmann. He adds: “While software engineering has become a lot more efficient in the past few years, industrial companies are lagging behind when it comes to hardware development. Valispace cuts engineering costs by more than 15 percent. That’s a huge sum of money in major projects.”

Common problems across complex hardware industries

Valispace’s customer base already includes companies from the aerospace and energy industries, such as AIRBUS, OHB Luxspace, GOMspace, DLR and Commonwealth Fusion Systems. Valispace is now expanding into new markets such as robotics, special-purpose mechanical engineering, industrial plant planning and commercial vehicle development. Shorter product life cycles as well as greater innovation and cost pressures are just some of the challenges that hardware developers are confronted with today. Valispace can help these companies by taking care of laborious admin work and enabling engineers to invest their entire productivity in completing technical tasks.

While most of Hannover Messe focuses on how digitization and industry 4.0 affects the production, at the Valispace booth you will learn about the potential in engineering.

Award-winning BEST PRODUCTS for intralogistics

The world’s first complete “goods-to-person” solution based on mobile 3D robots. A smart modular sorting system. And warehouse optimization software: These are the top three innovations honored with the prestigious BEST PRODUCT award at LogiMAT 2019.

An independent jury of scholars and journalists reviewed 77 submissions and chose three winners that fully live up to the name of BEST PRODUCT as outstanding manifestations of the award criteria: They enhance productivity, reduce costs, and streamline operations. The award-winning companies, through their products, are helping to make processes more stable yet flexible in adapting to changes. By improving efficiency, they are ultimately boosting the productivity of the logistics industry. The BEST PRODUCT award was presented to the winners during the gala opening ceremony on the first morning of the LogiMAT trade show. Presenting the awards was Prof. Johannes Fottner, Chair of the Institute for Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics at the Technical University of Munich.

In the category of “Order Picking, Conveying, Lifting, and Storing Technology,” the award went to French robotics startup EXOTEC Solutions SAS (East Entrance, Booth EO30) for its Skypod system – the world’s first complete “goods-to-person” solution based on mobile 3D robots.

The Skypod system is a complete “goods-to-person” solution for retailers and e-commerce merchants. Skypod is the world’s first order management system to use mobile 3D robots, which use AI to navigate in all directions, including up and down a genuine three-dimensional solution. The autonomous robots remove containers of goods weighing up to 30 kg from shelves up to 10 meters high, then bring them to the pickers. The robots raise the bar on existing technology, moving four times as fast and climbing five times as high as otherwise comparable transport systems. The increased height range lets warehouse operators make better use of their valuable floor space. Hour for hour, the Skypods process twice as many orders as conventional robots. This eliminates up to 15 km a day that human warehouse workers would otherwise have to cover on foot. The system satisfies the need for constant adaptations to an ever-changing market while making it possible to prepare and ship thousands of orders a day within just a few hours.

In the category of “Identification, Packaging and Loading Technology, Load Securing,” the award went to VITRONIC Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH (Hall 3, Booth D10) for its VIPAC SMALLS SORT smart sorting system.

The auto ID solutions from VITRONIC are deployed in logistics centers around the world to efficiently capture and integrate shipment data. VITRONIC has now expanded its product portfolio with VIPAC SMALLS SORT, making it the only provider to offer an end-to-end solution for package logistics. The smart modular system is an end-to-end solution combining data capture with automatic small-package sorting. It can run as a standalone solution in small hubs and depots or be integrated into large hubs within the sorting processes. Each shipment passes through four sections –  infeed, encoding, outfeed, sorting – before being automatically discharged at the desired point. Specialized software controls all the processes and provides real-time data visualization. VIPAC SMALLS SORT is tailored to the precise needs of customers and even works well with very small or bulky packages in cross-border trade, e-commerce, and more. In the encoding section, VITRONIC auto ID systems capture all the shipment data, take high-resolution images, and record the length, width, and height of all shipments. The system reads and processes barcodes and other 2D formats and uses OCR to read plain text. Together, this produces a “digital fingerprint” for each shipment. All the data is automatically saved to an archive system and provides valuable insights for accelerating distribution center processes and driving down costs in next-gen industrial automation.

In the category of “Software, Communications, IT,” the award went to Heureka Business Solutions GmbH (Hall 8, Booth C15) for its warehouse optimization software LOS.

The self-learning software LOS uses artificial intelligence to efficiently and economically manage same-day delivery concepts for products of increasing diversity manufactured in smaller, more highly customized batches. Manufacturing throughput time in intralogistics can be reduced by over 30 percent. The generic solution enhances any warehouse management system and can reduce operating and middle management costs by more than 25 percent. Every movement of goods and several hundred factors that affect intralogistics are analyzed in real time to ensure the most efficient flow of goods at all times. LOS automatically adjusts to any changes in market conditions or customer specifications, saving in-house IT personnel from time-consuming manual adjustments and protecting dispatchers from misapplying obsolete instructions. The software ensures a highly transparent material flow chain that makes it possible to predict daily workloads up to 72 hours in advance. Predictive algorithms alert users to irregularities through the LOS app on their mobile phones, giving them the opportunity to be proactive rather than reactive.

The three products awarded BEST PRODUCT 2019 represent all 1,600+ exhibitors from around the world at LogiMAT 2019 who are presenting their innovations to industry professionals across 120,000 square meters of exhibit space in 10 halls. The International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management, the largest of its kind worldwide, continues through February 21 at the Messe Stuttgart convention center.
