Cogiscan, connectivity solutions provider for
the electronics manufacturing industry, has partnered with Critical
Manufacturing to deliver Smart Factory solutions for electronics manufacturers.
Critical Manufacturing's Augmented MES solutions, in combination with
Cogiscan's Co-NECT machine connectivity technology, will deliver solutions that
allow electronics manufacturers to achieve the digital transformation necessary
to revolutionize their operations. Critical Manufacturing, Porto (Maia),
Portugal, is a worldwide leader in the area of MES for Industry 4.0.
The joint solutions resulting from this partnership will
deliver both the deep machine connectivity and robust MES business logic
enabling the high performance necessary to succeed in a highly competitive,
rapidly changing environment. The end result will be enhanced productivity and
quality for customers through modern, data-driven manufacturing execution.
Cogiscan has been partnering for many years with ASM SMT
Solutions, the primary SMT equipment business segment of ASMPT, which made a
strategic investment in Critical Manufacturing during August of 2018.
Therefore, this new partnership with Critical Manufacturing is a natural
extension of that successful long-term collaboration.
“As Industry and individual companies proceed along the path
of Smart Factory Evolution, it becomes more and more apparent that data is the
new oil that will enable many of the changes we are predicting and seeing
within manufacturing. Cogiscan's
experience in providing connectivity solutions within the SMT Market and large
library of existing machine interfaces will provide a valuable resource for us
as we continue to provide advanced and robust MES solutions for Industry 4.0,
AR/ AI, and leveraging Big Data for our customers”, said Dave Trail VP - SMT
& Electronics Business Unit at Critical Manufacturing.
Greg Benoit, Director of Business Development at Cogiscan,
added, “Cogiscan is excited to collaborate with a global leader like Critical
Manufacturing. Our Co-NECT platform, combined with Critical Manufacturing's
Industry-4.0 ready MES platform, will help customers realize their vision of the
