MachineMetrics Announces Partnership with The Robert E. Morris Company for Smart Manufacturing Experience

PRESS RELEASE: MachineMetrics Industrial IoT Platform partners with The Robert E. Morris Company and Tsugami/Rem Sales, LLC. to simulate a real-world manufacturing environment at 2018’s inaugural Smart Manufacturing Experience in Boston.

Northampton, MA, April 17, 2018 -  MachineMetrics’ Industrial IoT platform is generating some serious buzz around next month’s Smart Manufacturing Experience in Boston. The company has announced that they will exhibit their revolutionary Industrial IoT technology in the booths of industry giants The Robert E. Morris Company and Tsugami/Rem Sales as well as in their own dedicated booth with the goal of recreating a real-world, smart manufacturing environment. MachineMetrics CEO Bill Bither will also join The Robert E. Morris Company president, Lou Olson, for the event’s keynote presentation entitled: “Dynamics of Change: Disruptive Technologies and CNC Machinery” to discuss the benefits of applying the latest advanced manufacturing technologies and how early adopters of emerging technologies are improving productivity, part quality and profitability.

“A great deal of hesitancy still exists for manufacturers to embrace the technology that addresses the new challenges presented by digital transformation,” said Bill Bither, CEO of MachineMetrics. “With installing cloud-based monitoring systems being the first and perhaps most important step toward data-driven manufacturing, we designed MachineMetrics to help companies overcome these challenges and create a roadmap forward so they can take this initial and crucial step. We are proud to be developing the future of manufacturing alongside them.”

Despite producing the greatest amount of data of any industry in the US, manufacturing is the furthest behind any other global industry in their digital transformation efforts. Roughly 50% of US manufacturers admit to not having a systematic roadmap or toolbox for easy rollout of digital manufacturing solutions, and over 15% of all US manufacturers identify a lack of knowledge about suitable providers as their biggest obstacle. Because no standard roadmap for digital manufacturing exists, many are often uncertain around where to start and what foundational capabilities are required to succeed.

Today is “the internet moment” for manufacturing, and MachineMetrics has made it their mission to help manufacturers embrace the new opportunities created by these latest technologies.  To do this, they’ve revolutionized Industrial IoT for the manufacturing sector.  With simple “self-install” IIoT connectivity, MachineMetrics predictive analytics and machine learning platform allows manufacturers to harness, structure, and take action on this data, driving manufacturing efficiency by more than 20% on average for customers.

Now integrated into factories across North America and Europe, MachineMetrics is growing fast, having over 50 customers including Fastenal, Snap-On Tools, Gardner Denver, TurboCam, and Shiloh Automotive as well as partnerships with McKinsey and Co., SECO Tools and the Robert E. Morris Company.

MachineMetrics was recently awarded “Smart Manufacturing Solution of the Year” by the committee at IoT Breakthrough, winner of the Massachusetts TechHub Caucus’ 2018 NEXTGEN Technology Award, one of 20 tech-ecosystem partner by McKinsey and Co. for their Digital Manufacturing Growth Initiative, as well as a Top 10 Manufacturing Intelligence Solution Provider for 2017 by Manufacturing Technology Insights.

In its inaugural year, the Smart Manufacturing Experience will be held at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, MA from April 30 - May 2, 2018, and the MachineMetrics team will be exhibiting their innovative software in the REMCO booth (#351), Tsugami/Rem Sales booth (#341), as well as their own dedicated booth (#623) for the duration of the show.
