Pleasanton, Kansas, 03 March 2021. RIB Software SE, the world’s leading provider of iTWO 5D BIM Big Data technology for the construction industry, today announced the conclusion of a Phase-II-contract with Fabcon Precast.
Fabcon Precast is a leading provider of structural precast panels with four strategically placed manufacturing facilities in the US, offering a variety of precast solutions for data centers, logistics centers, distribution centers and other sectors such as healthcare, retail and offices.
The manufacturing facility in Kansas is undergoing a massive digitalization initiative, which also involves the modernization of some components of the production plant. This consisted in the implementation of the highly innovative laser projection system iTWO Smart Laser, as an integrating element of the iTWO MES system. iTWO MES is part of the MTWO platform. It controls production and records all defined data of the plants. The laser projection system iTWO Smart Laser developed by RIB SAA allows a high-precision and efficient measurement of precast concrete elements on the production table. It is an additional part of the Smart Production family, which leads to a significant productivity increase and quality assurance and at the same time simplifies the daily tasks for the employees.
Heath Waddell, Director Operations of Fabcon Kansas: “We were searching for a solution to improve quality, efficiency and the working environment for our employees. The iTWO Smart Laser solution is a great solution for these opportunities.”
Stefan Maier, Managing Director of RIB SAA in Vienna: “We are very pleased that Fabcon chose to upgrade its MTWO platform with the iTWO Smart Laser technology.
