This year the Wire Processing Technology Expo held annually in Milwaukee drew visitors from 28 countries. This is the only event where the industry meets as a whole to present and access new technologies, innovative products and services, as well as solutions for challenging wire problems.
Michael Reeve, VP Business Development of OES Technologies presented the many benefits of connecting plant floor equipment including bench top presses and automatic machines. “Connectivity provides opportunity to verify correct machine setup, keep everyone alerted to production events in real time, while supporting effective decision making”. These benefits and more were presented and this approach exposed a compelling case for increasing productivity and the bottom line. (For a copy of the presentation please contact OES Technologies.)
