Fujitsu America’s smart factory framework powered by PTC’s ThingWorx and Vuforia

PTC has expanded its existing customer relationship with Fujitsu America, Inc. to promote adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented reality (AR) technologies.

As a systems integrator (SI), Fujitsu has integrated PTC’s ThingWorx® Industrial IoT and Vuforia® Augmented Reality (AR) platforms into its Smart Factory framework, enabling manufacturing customers to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives by addressing growing skills gaps, providing support against increasing macroeconomic and cost pressures, and pioneering new ways of working.

“Our alliance with PTC will be pivotal in helping manufacturers thrive in an increasingly challenging business environment. Our enhanced Smart Factory framework, bolstered by the ThingWorx and Vuforia platforms, will enable our customers to create real-time operational insight and intelligence across manufacturing domains, helping to improve tactical and strategic operations,” says Paul Bresnahan, head of Manufacturing at Fujitsu America, Inc.

“Together, Fujitsu and PTC are enabling our customers to bring in new business that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise it’s a ‘win win’ for everyone.”

The Fujitsu Smart Factory framework, deployed with ThingWorx, supports shop floor efficiencies, enabling customers to reduce costs, increase productivity, and redeploy previously tied-up assets. Paired with the Vuforia AR platform, the Fujitsu Smart Factory solutions will enable customers to empower their front-line workers with the critical information they need to do their jobs safely, efficiently, and accurately, while also enabling customers to build resiliency and agility in their respective sectors.

“We are pleased to enter into this new phase of our relationship with Fujitsu. Fujitsu and PTC share a common vision to help manufacturers accelerate innovation in the factory to deliver meaningful business impact with speed and at scale,” says Catherine Kniker, divisional vice president and global head of corporate development at PTC.

“We both understand the challenges that come with migrating to a digital factory, and believe our robust experience positions us well to help our customers quickly achieve value with their digital transformation initiatives.”

PTC’s ThingWorx platform is designed to deliver Industrial IoT solutions at scale, across the enterprise, and enables organisations around the world to gain competitive advantage and reduce costs. Since its initial launch, thousands of industrial companies, including discrete product and process manufacturers, have used ThingWorx to successfully optimise business processes, improve manufacturing operations, modernise field service delivery, and more.

The Vuforia AR platform offers fast, easy, and advanced AR content development solutions, enabling increased workforce safety and efficiency, better customer experiences, and reduced cost, among other business benefits.
