What We Learned at Westec 2017
Westec offered a useful mix of emerging technology and practical applications. This slide show reflects this mix in its eclectic coverage of what exhibitors had to offer.

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 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.
