Safran Aircraft Engines is all set to install smart tracking IoT from Orange Business Services. The deployment of the technology will allow Safran Aircraft Engines to transform its industrial processes digitally. It will help the company to optimize the management and tracking of its different tools in areas of large-scale production.
Safran is known to be the oldest aircraft engine manufacturer in the world. It is located towards the south of Paris. In the year 2005, it was formed by merging Sagem, a security company, and Snecma, an aerospace component, and aircraft engine manufacturer.
Now, the company has evolved as the second-largest manufacturer of aircraft equipment in the world. It supplies some of the key systems like wheels, landing gear, wiring, and brakes. The company has gradually taken shape by associating with innovative and iconic companies in the space, defense, and aviation industries. Safran Aircraft Engines is a division of the company that is an Industry 4.0 pioneer. Safran Aircraft Engines offers innovative services and leverages digitization in order to sustain its unmatched production rates.
In order to retain its position as a leading manufacturer of aircraft engines, Safran requires a component-tracking system. The system will help in easily pinpointing and accurately locating the assets within the periphery of three meters in a complicated environment. The smart tracking system will provide Safran Aircraft Engines with a reliable and precise digital solution to optimize the maintenance and management of its tools.
The smart trackers will have to be customized to suit the metallic environment of the plants of the company. It will help in preventing any kind of wave interference within the industrial setting.
Safran selected Orange Business Services in order to equip two of its main production sites with smart-tracking IoT technology. The smart trackers were installed on over 15,000 specific tools. Moreover, 250 antennas were also deployed at two French plants, named Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Villaroche. While Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines measures 20,000m2, Villaroche measures 55,000m2. The teams in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Villaroche can now make use of data from the smart trackers in order to find out the exact location of the tools in real-time and remotely. This is possible with the help of the integrated software platform of Orange Business Services.
According to Christophe Blayo, Safran Aircraft Engines’ head of tooling, Safran has selected Orange Business Services as their trusted partner in order to address their business challenges and provide them with an innovative solution. He further added that the commitment of the team of Orange Business Services during the implementation of the project proved to be vital for the development and deployment of the optimal solution.
The vice president of Orange Business Services, Emmanuel Routier, said that the IoT integration project demonstrates the ability of the company to deliver large-scale industrial projects. It also shows the capability of Orange Business Services to handle all the potential challenges that come with large-scale projects. All such capabilities help in making a positive impact on the business of Orange Business Services.
