Pratt & Whitney's aircraft engines are widely used in both civil aviation (especially airlines) and military aviation. Its headquarters are in East Hartford, Connecticut. As one of the "big three" aero-engine manufacturers, it competes with General Electric and Rolls-Royce, although it has also formed joint ventures with both of these companies. In addition to aircraft engines, Pratt & Whitney manufactures gas turbines for industrial and power generation, and marine turbines.
What we did together?
We developed a highly customized solution called P-SCANNER that provided a highly skilled machinist with the ability to scan a barcode from a manufacturing order (MO) or a Traveler and load the associated part program automatically either from local machine folder or from the network. When the barcode is successfully scanned, the associated program details are populated on the screen in color codes and ready for the operator to hit the cycle start. Additionally, the operators of the various CNC equipment could use their key FOB to interact with the dataZen scanning application.
