MEMEX - PEM award

Winner of 2013 PEM Maintenance Award for Best Maintenance – Small Plant or Facility

The winner of the 2013 Maintenance Awards for Best Maintenance – Small Plant/Facility goes to Memex Automation for providing a holistic solution for improving overall maintenance and reliability efficiencies at Rose Integration, a medium to high-complexity machining shop.

Rose Integration had 30 machines operating independently, with no way of monitoring its equipment over the company Intranet and no visibility of either individual machines or plant operations. The facility turned to Memex Automation to help them install MERLIN, an all-encompassing machine-to-management packaged solution that would improve efficiencies across the board.

The machining shop can now develop customized reports that allow the plant to monitor machine parameters over time. For instance, the system allows Rose Integration to select a specific machine (or group of machines) to find out how many times a machine went into idle mode on maintenance for schedule, or to determine when to react to preventative maintenance schedules, or to shorten or lengthen operating cycles.

Rose Integration achieved full traceability of events and a by-the-second definition of each machine’s state. After the installment, the facility was able to increase overall equipment effectiveness by 25 per cent.

PEM, along with category sponsor, Fluke Electronics Canada, congratulates Memex Automation.

PEM would like to thank the 2013 sponsors — Flir Systems Canada, Siemens Canada Ltd. and Fluke Electronics Canada — and join them in applauding the winners and all of the finalists for their outstanding dedication to maintenance best practices.

About the PEM Maintenance Awards

The PEM Maintenance Award recognizes Canadian manufacturing facilities for their maintenance excellence and asset management professionalism and rewards facilities for unique initiatives in their maintenance and reliability practices.

Category winners were announced in the March/April 2014 issue of PEM magazine.
