Bielefeld // New partners: Through a cooperation with the US-American software supplier TULIP, DMG MORI is simplifying digital manufacturing adoption for its customers. Manufacturing workforce and engineers can easily create apps via a drag and drop interface and integrate them with existing systems. This no-code approach is designed with the needs of production lines in mind. It enables them to collect and analyze data in real time, without any programming know-how.
“We are proud of our new alliance. After all, digitization is human-centered. With the no-code platform, employees can autonomously create manufacturing apps. TULIP is the ideal entry into digitization mainly for our medium-sized customers,” says Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT.
“Our products are very easy to understand and can be used by any technician working in production without the help of the IT department. Anyone can quickly and intuitively develop apps and connect IoT devices and machines, supporting a wide range of production use cases with pre-built templates. DMG MORI offers a global footprint from which TULIP benefits especially for the SMEs who represent a huge portion of the value chain, yet lack in basic modern and accessible software solutions,” says TULIP CEO Natan Linder.
Manufacturing apps increase transparency along the entire process chain. Thus, shop floor workers can optimize each process – from production through machine and quality monitoring to service and training. Every process can easily be digitized. All of TULIP’s applications are user-friendly and straightforward. Data can be adapted and saved in real-time – without the need of writing code. Unlike alternative manufacturing systems which can be complex, time-consuming and costly – TULIP offers a flexible, open and agile solution. Companies can adapt and scale their digital transformation efforts at their own pace. This simplifies digital production for manufacturers, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.
TULIP was founded in 2014 by engineers from the MIT Media Lab in Boston, USA and currently employs more than 70 people. Additionally, over 200 notable customers already successfully work with TULIP in various fields.
