In Augmented Reality News 

June 9, 2023 – PTC, a provider of digital solutions for industry and manufacturing, and Rockwell Automation, a provider of industrial automation solutions, have this week announced an extension of their partnership, focused on the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented reality (AR) software by manufacturing companies.

Rockwell Automation will continue to resell PTC’s ThingWorx IoT software, including the Digital Performance Management (DPM) manufacturing solution, and Vuforia AR software to new and existing customers across discrete and process manufacturing verticals. The companies noted that customers will continue to benefit from both PTC’s and Rockwell Automation’s resources, technologies, and industry expertise.

“PTC has enjoyed a productive and beneficial relationship with Rockwell Automation for the last five years, and we’re pleased to extend it,” said Jim Heppelmann, CEO, PTC. “Our IoT and AR solutions bring real value to Rockwell Automation’s manufacturing customers for use cases such as asset monitoring, predictive maintenance, and quality inspection. PTC partnering with Rockwell Automation continues to be a win-win for manufacturers that want to improve efficiencies and productivity in their factories.”

“Rockwell continues to leverage PTC software as an important component of our global customers’ digital manufacturing solutions,” said Blake Moret, Chairman and CEO, Rockwell Automation. “Alongside our best-in-class Operations Management solutions, we remain excited about PTC’s innovative solutions and the impact those technologies have on customer value.”

Rockwell Automation was a sponsor of PTC’s LiveWorx event that took place last month, where the company demonstrated its manufacturing solutions on the Xtropolis show floor. PTC will be exhibiting at Rockwell’s Automation Fair in November at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, where the company will be showcasing its latest manufacturing technologies and augmented reality solutions.
