iTAC presents cloud-based MES at SMT Hybrid Packaging

The MES specialist paves the way for Industry 4.0

(PresseBox) (Dernbach, ) Seamless machine-to-machine communication for globally networked processes is the essence of Industry 4.0. Reflecting this, iTAC Software AG will be proving that MES in the cloud isn’t a vision but already reality at the SMT Hybrid Packaging Trade Show in Nuremberg from April 16 to 18. Trade visitors can discover the benefits of a cloud-based MES in conjunction with iTAC.ARTES middleware and much more at Stand 411 in Hall 7.

This year’s SMT Hybrid Packaging trade show is getting ready to open its doors. It’s Europe’s leading event on system integration in microelectronics. Between April 16 and 18, the Nuremberg Exhibition Center will deliver a comprehensive overview of the latest trends and developments in electronics manufacturing. The event is a meeting place for SMT equipment, components and service providers from around the globe. It is geared to experts and decision makers in corporate management, development, production, quality control and technical management.

iTAC demonstrates global process networking with cloud-based MES
The iTAC stand focuses on the subject of ‘networking‘ as defined by the Industry 4.0 concept. For MES specialist iTAC, intelligently networked production chains aren’t a future vision, but a already very much a reality. The system and solution specialist will be demonstrating its standard cloud-based MES, which is hosted in a Fujitsu data center.

The iTAC.ARTES middleware on which the iTAC MES is based is the technological platform for cloud-based MES. This middleware is the technological layer for state-of-the-art enterprise applications based on the Java EE platform. Among other things, iTAC.ARTES facilitates high-end MES features such as load distribution and 24/7 failure safety in accordance with the Industry 4.0 standard.

M2M communications for maximum resource efficiency
To implement an Industry 4.0 scenario, it’s very important for the production machines to be able to communicate with each other. iTAC has built and established standard interfaces to all leading SMT placement and electronics production machines for their efficient and low-cost integration with the MES. This means that the MES software and all its functions can be used in the highly automated production environments found in electronics manufacturing facilities.

“Our cloud-based MES takes us a big step forward towards the fourth industrial revolution because it permits intelligent, inter-company and international M2M communication. We also deliver the reliability and interoperability for globally optimized and standard conforming processes,” explained Martin Heinz, General Manager at iTAC. He continued, “Companies in various sectors of industry have already integrated our cloud-based MES in their corporate infrastructure. Now they’re profiting from resource efficiency, cost reductions and many other advantages.”
