Analyzing FOOE

OEE May Not Be Enough
Overall equipment efficiency (OEE) is a critical measurement of how well a manufacturing unit is doing. But shops should also focus on profitability, which is where Financial OEE comes in.

Connectivity Board Connects Legacy Machine Tools
Memex introduces the MTC-One, an MTConnect connectivity board for legacy machine tools and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices.

Dashboard Displays Data for MTConnect-Enabled Machines in Real Time
Memex has launched Merlin OPTime, a free real-time dashboard application for MTConnect-enabled devices.

NTMA Members Share Observations after Japan Manufacturing Tour
U.S. shop owners and managers comment on the plants they visited, automation and culture, and the value of getting to see manufacturers far away in the company of other shop leaders.

Memex Partners with Mazak
Memex’s Merlin shopfloor communications platform is a fundamental part of Mazak’s iSmart Factory concept.

Making Sure MTConnect Is a Good Fit
An MTConnect-enabled machine monitoring system gives shopfloor managers information that is driving up utilization rates and improving workforce communication for this manufacturer of high-pressure aerospace fittings.

Machine Monitoring Proves Its Worth
These three short case histories document the value of implementing a manufacturing execution system for machine monitoring. In each case, MERLIN hardware and software modules from Memex Automation led to productivity gains and improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

No Machine Left Behind
Connectivity protects legacy machines as production assets.

Ethernet communications board

Bringing The Internet To The Machine Tool
The Internet integrates the factory floor with customers and suppliers, allowing true Enterprise Production Management. The concept of "virtual product" replaces the conventional practice of warehousing inventory.

PC based control 3

Choosing A Retrofit CNC
Controls have evolved considerably in just a few years. PC technology is one reason why, but what is the right way for PC hardware to interface with your existing machine tool?

Control Interface

The Shop With A Nervous System
Automatically recording and distributing information about what's happening while a machine tool is in operation leads to process improvements and higher productivity for this aircraft manufacturer.

Direct Connections To Fanuc Controls
The latest industry trend in this area will find us linking our CNCs via an Ethernet cable to the standard office local area network (LAN).
