System Insights and Sodick Showcase Partnership at IMTS 2016


Berkeley, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/30/2016 --System Insights, powered by VIMANA and Sodick, Inc. are showcasing their strategic partnership at IMTS 2016. Under the partner agreement, the companies will co-market System Insights' MTConnect adapter technology and the VIMANA analytics platform with Sodick EDM equipment.

Customers using this technology will be able to transform and analyze machine data to reveal actionable insights from the plant to the enterprise. Users can monitor and proactively manage, via dashboards and alerts, operational performance anytime and anywhere. This visibility provides operators and managers insight to redirect resources, balance maintenance schedules, and identify areas for process improvement. Manufacturers can maximize the potential of their assets, enhance product operations and product flows, boost quality, improve on time delivery, and motivate employee self-management and satisfaction.

The joint solution will be demonstrated in the Sodick (E-4802) and System Insights (E-4149) booths at IMTS 2016 in Chicago, September 12th through the 17th. IMTS attendees will experience Sodick's global fleet of machines, spanning from California, Japan, and Illinois, to the exhibit floor. Visitors will be able to experience the functionality and value of those connected assets, analytics, and insight – a smart factory and IIoT in action. Sodick will also preview a wealth of new EDM and 3D Printing technologies, including a Metal 3D Printer, a new PCD Tool Cutting Package, new premium and economy Wire EDMs, and a new line of High Speed Milling centers. Guests to the Sodick booth will join in-booth celebrations of the 10 year anniversary of Sodick's 10 year accuracy guarantee and a live signing event with Sodick's first 3D printing customer in the US.
