Lantek Selects Director for FMA's Software Technology Council

Adria Haines

Lantek Sheet Metal Solutions has appointed Lantek USA Director Adria Haines to the Fabricators & Manufacturer's Association, International (FMA) Software Technology Council. As one of only nine members on the council, Haines brings 20 years of expertise in CAD/CAM and manufacturing solutions software.

FMA's Software Technology Council is comprised of volunteer leaders that provide FMA members and the industry with unbiased information about the benefits of software solutions and automation. "We are pleased to have Adria join our Software Technology Council," said Ashly Lantz, Education Products Specialist for FMA. "Adria offers valuable insights into the digitization of manufacturing. This topic is top of mind for our members, so we look forward to her support in the coming year."

Haines has robust experience in the CAD/CAM market. With an educational background in computer science from the University of Cincinnati, Haines began her career developing and supporting CAD/CAM software. She went on to serve as an Application Engineer, demonstrating and implementing CAD/CAM interoperability projects to Fortune 500 manufacturers, before landing in her favorite role - crafting solutions for customers.

"I am a problem-solver by nature," stated Haines. "Once I began working closely with clients in real-world manufacturing, I was hooked. To see the impact my work has in saving time and money for manufacturers is truly satisfying." In 2009 Lantek selected Haines to assemble a U.S. team as part of its mission to help sheet metal companies digitize their processes with the most innovative software products and services. She has been key in the launch of Advanced Solutions, Lantek's new offering for the digital transformation of sheet metal companies.

"Today I am helping my clients learn Industry 4.0 technologies and how to achieve their digitization goals. I am honored to be chosen for the FMA Software Council and hope that my knowledge of CAD/CAM, nesting, manufacturing execution systems (MES), ERP and Integrated Smart Factory will be an asset to their mission," said Haines.
