Memex Adopts New XML Connectivity Standard MTConnect

The next evolution in manufacturing connectivity was unveiled by Memex Automation Inc. and MatrikonOPC™, the world’s largest OPC connectivity provider, at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) held this week in Chicago. Utilizing MatrikonOPC’s standards-based connectivity, Memex is now able to connect virtually all CNC machine tools leveraging our Dynamic Computer Aided Machining (DCAM) model. Our goal is to provide a universal machine interface that makes every machine a node on the corporate network.

Production Managers can now monitor the status of every machine in their plant, giving real time visibility of production. The benefits of machine monitoring and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) numbers lead directly to increased productivity. Our customers have seen up to 20% increase in shop floor efficiency, delivering more value than the cost of a new machine. Large multi-national manufacturers and leading aerospace companies have started adopting this technology. It’s like a low cost retrofit – we now can start Automating the Automation.
