Unified SECS/GEM interface for Legacy Machines

Anchor 1

Challenges in the current Manufacturing

Currently, there are more than 85% of all installed machines are not connected, being unable to share information with its internal host controller or MES system. This may be caused by various reasons such as: machine has reach its end of life, cost of upgrade is HIGH or machine vendor is no longer exists.  

Such distributed information, however is fundamental in establishing a smart manufacturing environment. Even so, it is rarely practical for factory operators to replace the legacy machines (just because they cannot connect to factory host), with such measures representing tremendous capital outlay. 

But why replace your current asset just because they cannot communicate? Read on to our latest product for the solution to your factory!
