Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software, (MOM/MES), announces that Unitron Group B.V. has selected the FactoryLogix IIoT-based MES solution for their factory in the Netherlands.

“In our highly regulated industry, it became essential to streamline our engineering operations, through the implementation of interactive electronic assembly documentation, as well as also providing holistic traceability, which demonstrates compliance. We found confidence in Aegis’ proven track record in the Medical market and strong customer base in Europe.”

With over 30 years of experience in manufacturing complex mechatronic and electronic equipment, Unitron is dedicated to creating life-science devices in areas including electrophysiology, optics, ventilators, and heating. With certification to ISO 13485 and Ordinance 169 and compliancy to FDA, Unitron specializes in efficient scalability from prototype to volume for the medical market, covering the European, American, and Japanese markets.

Producing more than 250 different products each year, Unitron’s goal was to implement a modern, IIoT platform-based Smart MES solution, replacing their older system that worked together with an in-house solution.

“In our highly regulated industry, it became essential to streamline our engineering operations, through the implementation of interactive electronic assembly documentation, as well as also providing holistic traceability, which demonstrates compliance,” explains Mario Steel, Operations Manager at Unitron Group B.V., who continues, “We found confidence in Aegis’ proven track record in the Medical market and strong customer base in Europe.”

As progress is made towards Industry 4.0, FactoryLogix works “out-of-the-box” to make the most out of data available on the shop-floor and within the enterprise, enabling Unitron to adapt and evolve operations very quickly, retaining focus on specific needs of their customers.

Daniel Walls, Managing Director EMEA at Aegis Software, states, “We are proud to be working with Unitron, who are helping take global healthcare to the next level in this crucial medical sector. Now more than ever, excellent manufacturing operations, building products with outstanding quality and reliability, is critical to all of us.”
