Aegis has announced that its FactoryLogix software was chosen over a number of other MES providers, both local and international, as Dongguan Huabel’s MES provider after a lengthy and detailed selection process. Huabel chose Aegis for its service, mature technology, and clear delivery terms, providing a low-risk solution.
Huabel previous experience with MES had been unsuccessful, Aegis reported, and this, combined with Huabel’s own in-house software reaching the limit of its capabilities, led the company to embark on a detailed search for an MES provider. This decision is part of a lean manufacturing philosophy that will help Huabel reduce waste and improve efficiency. “We found that Aegis is very strong in process control and management” said the vice president of Huabel’s Engineering Center Division, adding, “During the bid, the whole Aegis team acted very professionally, boosting our confidence in choosing Aegis as our MES provider.”
Huabel will deploy FactoryLogix across its entire facility, which includes 31 SMT lines. Data will be collected via xLink, enabling reliable and efficient data processing. Huabel will roll out FactoryLogix throughout the enterprise including NPI, material logistics, production, SMT lines management, analytics, dashboard monitoring, and integration with xLink and xTend, as well as inForce line terminals and scanners for fail-safe process interlocking and alarming.
The library of Aegis xLink adapters for leading machines transforms real-time and disparate data types into streams of standards-based data that Aegis servers inherently understand. Aegis xTend provides data exchange to ERP, PLM, time and attendance systems, and workflow automation systems.
