Custom injection molder, Fourmark Inc., in Oakville, Ont., is deploying Shoplogix Inc.’s Web-based Plantnode Network throughout its 25,000-square foot (sq. ft.) facility.
Plantnode Network provides consolidated management capabilities and real-time statistics about equipment connected to Plantnode units.
Fourmark had previously installed some Plantnode units on some of its machinery, but is adding more units, Shoplogix said.
“Plantode Network allows us to centrally manage the units and gain a consolidated view of the productivity of equipment that is connected to Plantnode units,” Adam Cruickshank, president of Fourmark, said. “In effect, we can measure our plant efficiency based on real-time statistics, as well as drill down to view statistics on any individual machine. This gives us the ability to evaluate and compare the efficiency of each machine, as well as continuously monitor our equipment from a single station.”
Fourmark is a contract manufacturer of injection molding, and related services, to a variety of industries, such as food packaging, consumer goods, cosmetics and construction.
