The Most Intelligent Shop Floor Automation Solution.
It is always challenging for PCB engineers and the production staff to effectively manage customer part/job data and tool/machine data while managing a smooth, flawless production process day in and day out.
Even after investing hundreds of thousands dollars in CAD/CAM stations, file servers and storage, manufacturers often find that current systems are prone to error, hard to trace, slow to respond, and expensive to operate.
CIMfactory enables real-time, automatic tool generation (i.e. films, fixtures, CNC, AOI programs), work order specific process optimization and data management using an intelligent process engine and central database. It seamlessly integrates CAD/CAM, shop floor and process data, allowing engineers and production staff to have the right tools at the right time for the right machine for the right plant.
CIMfactory significantly improves yield, reduces operational costs and investments, and improves manufacturing responsiveness. It delivers ROI fast.
CIMfactory stores data in one central database rather than in discrete file systems
Saves hardware costs associated with file servers, workstations, DNC-file and archive systems
Traces and processes data to easily detect the cause of problems
Quickly adapts to the addition of a new machine by updating only once in the database, instead of in hundreds of files in different systems
CIMfactory captures real-time data during production and intelligently uses this data to generate optimized tools automatically.
Improves yield by generating accurate registration for CNC drilling and plotting without human intervention
Increases responsiveness, and bypasses from CAD/CAM resource limits, and plant or machine limits
Reduces time and costs to acquire optimized tools
Eliminates the need for film storage, air conditioned film storage facilities, and touch up
Increases profit margins by minimizing errors and making more efficient use of production and human resources
CIMfactory is built on an open, scalable architecture, with multi-lingual and multi-plant capabilities. It performs:
Automation: Uses data from different processes to automatically provide optimized tools
Integration: Consolidates CAD/CAM data with data from production resources and actual measurements and links to different machine interfaces and ERP systems
Tracking: Tracks CAD/CAM and work order job performance and who has worked on them
