Memex Automation ITMS 2010 Show Special Rated Huge Success
Manufacturing shop floor productivity took a much-needed step forward at the Manufacturing Technology Show IMTS 2010. Memex Automation will showcase and offer “Show Specials” of its new universal file server that improves CNC machine tool productivity, thereby allowing machines to operate more efficiently and therefore help companies be more productive.
In today’s manufacturing world with individual machines being the islands of automation, they very often do not have ready and quick access to the manufacturing programs needed to run the machines. This is very often caused because of lack of network connections of the machines to the powerful CAD/CAM servers that store the programs and the latency in downloading very large programs even if there is a connection. In many cases operators are running around the shop floor trying to get the correct programs where the machine is waiting not being utilized, often many hours per day.
Memex’s new Universal File Server, Ax2200HS-FS provides for large file storage directly at the machine as well as an Ethernet to serial Bridge to connect directly to the machine. This is much more robust and shop hardened than a PC located at the machine, and is easily one quarter of the cost.
By assisting manufacturers to be more productive on a day by day operating basis, Memex is assisting the North American manufacturing sector to be more competitive on a global basis.
