BURLINGTON, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2016) - Memex Inc. ("MEMEX" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: OEE) will be unveiling and demonstrating the next generation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) hardware and software solutions including the next release of MERLIN, the company's core IIoT communication platform, at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago from September 12 to 17, located at booth E 3368.
Building upon the success of the current award-winning MERLIN platform, the next release of MERLIN allows manufacturers to take control of their shop floor and optimize efficiency at a whole new level. MERLIN has enabled manufacturers to achieve upwards of 50% increase in productivity and over 20% increase in profit based on a 10% increase in OEE. On average, over 100 MERLIN customers have secured payback in less than four months, which translates to an Internal Rate of Return greater than 300%.
"Our next release of MERLIN is designed to be the most scalable and powerful plant monitoring software in the company's history," said David McPhail, MEMEX's CEO. "With this release we will expand MERLIN´s value proposition for our partners and our customers by giving manufacturers the option to move their real-time machine monitoring off-premise and to scale their Smart Manufacturing needs as required for IIoT centric business outcomes."
New smart-edge IIoT hardware connectivity solutions by MEMEX will open up the world of IIoT for manufacturing by translating a wide variety of digital, analog and other signals/protocols into MTConnect® (the open source and royalty free interconnectivity communication standard).
With these announcements MEMEX is redefining what it means to truly know what is happening in your plant. Additionally, MEMEX will further itself as the leader in both shop floor monitoring, as well as providing MTConnect® software and hardware solutions for any machine on the plant floor.
David McPhail and Dave Edstrom, former President and Chairman of the MTConnect® Institute and the current CTO of MEMEX, will be in booth E3368 to demonstrate the new software and hardware platform along with other MEMEX industry experts. Both Mr. McPhail and Mr. Edstrom were recognized as two of the top 30 Advanced Manufacturing Visionaries by Smart Manufacturing Magazine and can speak on a wide range of industry trends.
