Husky Injection Molding Systems unveils a new groundbreaking digitalized end-to-end manufacturing execution process.

You do not realize a quantum leap with the end-to-end manufacturing execution process if only the chips on the milling machine fly a bit faster in production. Husky’s NGOM in Luxembourg is pursuing optimization through digitization. Optimization of processes, which involve the handling of the customer inquiry up to the delivered tool, purposefully to continue being competitive in the future. And another effect comes up: Production revenue throughout the industry has shifted dramatically to China over the last several years. Digitalization can help to bring back some of the production value to Europe and North America that has been shifted to Asia (Fig. 1). Husky hosted a one-day event at its EMEA headquarters in Dudelange, Luxembourg to officially unveil its digital, state-ofthe-art Next Generation Operating Model (NGOM).
The industry faces ever more complex demands from its customers (Fig. 2; CC has reported these requirements in the ONE:15 issue). With NGOM, Husky can now offer solutions with high added value - while streamlining production costs and adding a new dimension of speed and flexibility.
John Galt, President and CEO of Husky, emphasizes that the new program is revolutionizing processes and ways of working: “Husky recognizes the significant impact of digitization in all areas and has worked with our partners, most notably Siemens, at all levels to develop our sustainable digital manufacturing capabilities and processes.” He congratulates the Luxembourg government on its forward-looking approach to helping companies make the transition to the digital world. This allows them to meet the rapidly changing needs of the industry. Galt is steadfast in his conviction that Luxembourg is and will remain a preferred location for Husky. Not only his personal connection - Galt lived with his family for 5 years in Luxembourg - but because of the always positive experience as an “excellent place for doing business” - he was pleased to accept the support program of the country Luxembourg. “Luxembourg is the perfect home to create a world-class digitalization facility.”
