Saint Peters, MO – October 08, 2015 – MEMEX Inc. (TSX-V: OEE) is pleased to announce that Seyer Industries Inc., a Missouri-based aerospace manufacturing company with a focus on the development, manufacture and aftermarket support of aerospace products, has provided an initial order for MERLIN.
MEMEX’s flagship software product MERLIN is an industrial-strength shop-floor-to-top-floor communications platform that provides efficiency metrics in real time. Specifically, MERLIN delivers a 10%-50% average productivity increase, earns 20%-plus profit improvement based on just a 10% increase in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), consistently achieves payback in less than four months with an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) greater than 300%, and connects to any machine, old or new, utilizing native MTConnect or hardware adapters for older machines.
“We have seen the benefits of data-driven manufacturing. Now with MERLIN collecting data automatically from the machine, we will get OEE metrics as well as much more detail and granularity of events, allowing us to retrieve actionable data to streamline our manufacturing process,” said Mark Seyer, VP Manufacturing at Seyer. “We will use the MTConnect standard for machine connectivity, initially operating on the Mazak machines.
“The aerospace sector demands a high degree of accuracy and efficiency in the manufacturing supply chain,” said John Rattray, MEMEX’s Vice President of Sales. “We see Seyer Industries as a leading company, embracing data-driven manufacturing, to improve efficiencies in their operations and gain competitive advantages. MERLIN has the unique ability to bring machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity from the shop-to-the-top-floor, driving cost competitiveness with superior machining processes.”
