Headquartered in Attnang-Puchheim, Austria, STIWA Automation GmbH is an industry leader in high-performance automation. The company’s 1200 employees at four locations provide STIWA customers with automated feeding, packaging, and transport systems as well as assembly and process modules.
STIWA engineers use MATLAB® to analyze large amounts of production data collected by the shopfloor management system AMS ZPoint-CI in near real time. This approach enables them to calculate time-optimal trajectories for machinery, reduce cycle times for production systems, and increase production output.
“MATLAB and STIWA manufacturing software enable us to employ algorithms to maximize the production capacity of mechanical systems, diagnose and correct system problems in software, and rapidly analyze the data we collect to optimize automation machinery,” says Alexander Meisinger, chief sales officer for manufacturing software at STIWA.
