ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- eFlex Systems announced today its strategic partnership with Atlas Copco, a leading provider of assembly solutions. Through this strategic partnership, eFlex Systems will integrate Atlas Copco's industrial fastening devices into Job Element Monitor (JEM) – the digital work instruction platform that will be used on a large medical device manufacturing project.
By digitizing assembly operations with device connectivity, engineers will be able to quickly set up, control, and view torque tooling configurations within the JEM system. The software will enable the controller in a configurable sequence, send parameters, disable the tool with a specific count, store torque and angle data, and track tool faults. The collaboration between the two systems provides a standardized, plug & play assembly solution while providing error proofing and quality assurance measures.
Dan McKiernan, President of eFlex Systems shared, "Through our strategic partnership with Atlas Copco, eFlex is able to seamlessly connect tooling into our digital platform, ensuring build processes are done correctly every time and quality standards are met. This is critical for any industry, but especially important when working on a project in the medical device and healthcare industry, considering the regulatory environment. This strategic partnership marks an ongoing commitment to grow the digital manufacturing platform and further serve growing customer needs."
Rob Hostler, Atlas Copco Business Line Manager added, "We are very excited to combine our advanced assembly technologies with an innovator like eFlex Systems to ensure that productive, safety, and quality are paramount to our joint customers."
