Marposs Announces MAINDO Digital Platform

Combines quality and process data from software and devices in holistic production-monitoring view

Published: Thursday, October 13, 2022 - 11:00

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs has announced MAINDO, its new digital platform that integrates Marposs monitoring, measuring, testing, or other manufacturer device or solutions throughout the entire production process. MAINDO combines quality and process in a holistic production-monitoring view.

Marposs modular software systems, comprising brands such as Blulink, MG, Brankamp, Artis, and S&K, enable a direct network connection between a production-level system, a process-monitoring system, or a PLC terminal, and the production control and quality management systems with higher-level company systems like ERP, PLM, and MES. The MAINDO platform offers improved production quality, reduced costs, traceability, and remote data accessibility.

Marposs MAINDO Digital Platform combines quality and process data gathered from Marposs software or devices in a holistic production-monitoring view.

MAINDO embodies Industry 4.0 principles by integrating, sharing, and enhancing data generated by Marposs systems focused on quality control, production processes, and environmental conditions. Data that are typically stored in separate domains—such as machine parameters, production process information, inspection results, and continuous improvement process information—are brought together into a single view to provide information for failure detection and prediction. Root cause analysis and domain know-how bring at-a-glance information to all stakeholders with customizable dashboards.

In addition, QuartaEVO, Marposs quality management software, provides a structured business process based on industry-sector standards to ensure a secure and efficient quality assurance process for product prototyping through serial production up to incoming and outgoing goods inspection—quality and preventive actions to continuously improve product quality, processes, and overall company effectiveness.

The MAINDO platform provides instant access to the following:
• Device and process data updates
• Multilevel failure detection
• Root cause analysis and continuous improvement
• Device asset management
• Device and process data updates
• Global access to devices and process data to recognize malfunction, update software components, gather development specific data, and recognize and predict level of service
