Article from Metalforming Magazine


Homeyer Precision Manufacturing Co., Marthasville, MO, has purchased Merlin Enterprise Edition, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) company-wide communications platform that provides manufacturing analytics in real time, from Memex Inc. The sale includes 23 licenses of Merlin for overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and direct numerical control, as well as nine MTConnect hardware adapters for legacy CNC-manufacturing machines.
“IIoT is a powerful trend, and Merlin makes IIoT real by equipping industrial machines with the necessary interfaces for connecting, collecting and analyzing manufacturing data in real time,” says Homeyer, who also is chairman of the board for the National Tooling and Machining Association. “One of the things that most impressed us is how no machine is left behind regardless of make or vintage, and the software’s ability to implement quickly on our factory floor without costly integration services or associated time lags. With this real-time visibility, we look forward to a significant boost in OEE.”
Homeyer Precision Manufacturing produces precision metal parts for many industries, including aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and energy production. Memex provides manufacturing-productivity analytics. For more on Merlin, the company’s flagship product, visit www.memexoee.com.
