SMTA Carolinas Chapter Hosts CFX Webinar

Reading time ( words)

CFX is an electronics manufacturing industry developed standard forming the foundation and backbone of Industry 4.0 applications. It simplifies and standardizes machine to machine communication while also facilitating machine to business/business to machine solutions. CFX can simply be described as a standard providing a purpose, working components, benefits, with several applications and sustainability.

The SMTA Carolinas Chapter is hosting a ZOOM webinar on November 24, 2020 at 12:00 EST to discuss ways to leverage CFX for manufacturing success and help explain its role in the smart factory. Compared to other Machine-to-Machine communication systems, CFX is a true “plug and play” communication system, easily implemented for all manufacturers.

“If you ever wanted to learn more about CFX and how you can leverage it for manufacturing success, then this is the seminar to attend,” said Brent Fischthal SMTA Carolinas Chapter Vice-President. “Michael Ford, the Senior Director of Emerging Industry Strategy at Aegis Software will discuss the CFX standard and describe how it allows machines to communicate with other machines.” CFX can turn any factory with old or new equipment into a smart factory.

Pre-registration is required. Log-in details will be sent to all registrants 24 hours prior to the presentation.

To RSVP, visit or the SMTA Carolinas Chapter site.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”
