Memex Automation Inc. had the opportunity to demonstrate its MERLIN MES solution to the many 1,000's of attendees who walked into booth E-3368 at IMTS. MERLIN was also the  only MES on display at  the Mazak & Okuma booths.

Then we can show you directly in your office.

As proof that MERLIN is helping the top machine builders in the world succeed, take a look at Mazak's business case. Within three months of the implementation of MERLIN throughout its Florence, KY plant, Mazak increased its own machines' utilization by 42%. Mazak published its experiences and business case in (Mazak Uses MERLIN MES and MTConnect at Kentucky Plant). As well they saw reduction in hours of overtime per month, a return of 400 hours of outsourced work and removal of unnessary optional stops, all direct cost savings as reviewed in Modern Machine Shop (Data-Driven Manufacturing Moves Ahead at Mazak).  Mazak's Vice President of Manufacturing, Ben Schawe, gives a detailed video presentation about how his team implemented MERLIN and generated a breakeven within weeks.
Industry leaders such as Dave Edstrom, CTO of Memex Automation (and previously Chairman of the MTConnect Institute) and Bob Hansen, author of the definitive book on OEE, were also in attendance and helping out at the Memex booth.
