Fujitsu has integrated PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT and Vuforia Augmented Reality (AR) platforms into its Smart Factory framework. The company has also expanded its existing customer relationship with PTC to become a system integrator.

The Fujitsu Smart Factory framework is designed to help manufacturers reduce costs, increase productivity and redeploy previously tied-up assets.

Integrating with the Vuforia AR platform will allow Fujitsu Smart Factory solutions to provide front-line workers with job critical information.

“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,” said 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.”

“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,” said Catherine Kniker, Divisional Vice President and Global Head of Corporate Development, 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.”
