Mingo is software built for millwork. It helps to reduce scrap and downtime, schedule efficiently, and reduce costs.
Manufacturers of tempered, stainless and carbon steel wires widely used in the automotive industry, know the importance of a strong, quality product. There’s a lot riding on their reputations as a quality manufacturer.
When manufacturing wire products, materials are strung at high tension and tempered with high heat. Understanding these material thresholds, including what gauge and what type of wire will work best in the manufacturing process, with wire manufacturing software could save thousands of dollars in reduced scrap.
Get visibility into the plant, understand how it’s running, in real-time, and know if you’re on track to hit your production goals with a complete wire manufacturing software solution.
Built by people who know manufacturing, Mingo provides the 21st century “Smart Factory” experience that manufacturers need to grow in a modern environment. See how it can help you drive revenue.
After install, the operators now know how they are tracking goals in real-time, and management can make decisions in real-time to allocate resources to best meet company goals.
Mandated by corporate to provide better reporting, the old way of tracking OEE and plant performance just wasn’t cutting it any more for one wire manufacturer.
While widely regarded in the company as one of the most efficient plants in the fleet, they had no visibility into any inefficiencies that did exist, and no way to demonstrate their own productivity.
Using Banner Engineering’s wireless sensors, Mingo inexpensively and securely connected the manufacturers machines to measure cycle times and produce a reliable, realistic OEE.
These devices communicate over a private, secure wireless connection to the Mingo Gateway server, which in turn pushes data to the cloud. From the factory floor, a mix of newer and legacy machines now provides data on availability and cycle times.
Mingo manufacturing analytics fulfills their reporting requirement and gives them critical insight into their manufacturing process. By weighing material before and after and inputting that data into Mingo, they can now track scrap rates to better perform.
Now, the wire manufacturer has plant-level visibility they can confidently pass on to corporate, proving out their peerless productivity with cold, hard facts.
There is an app available for both iPhone and Android devices, providing that full visibility manufacturers need into the plant, regardless of where they are at any given moment. Best of all, the app helps manufacturers stay on top of plant performance with real-time alerts.
Not only is a mobile app available, but Mingo is compatible with tablets. This also gives operators the ability to know where they stand throughout the shift.
We’re constantly growing our offerings, and it’s our overall goal to improve the day-to-day activities of manufacturers through plant visibility and accountability.
As you learned from the customer example, wire manufacturing software help manufacturers like yourself address visibility challenges. With the right software, you can address downtime, manage throughput, and reduce scrap, while collecting accurate, reliable data that can be used to report to the c-suite.
The benefits are undeniable.
At the end of the day, the right wire manufacturing productivity software is going to be based on the goals you want to achieve. As a provider of said software, we’d like to persuade you to choose Mingo, but it’s our job to make sure you choose the right software for YOU.
What do you want to achieve? What is your budget? Do you want to involve all employees in the plant? Do you need an app to monitor performance remotely? Are you concerned with downtime? Scrap? All of these questions are viable questions, but it’s important to address them before choosing a wire manufacturing software.
If you need help, we’d be happy to help you address your goals, questions, or concerns. Reach out to our team of manufacturing productivity experts today.
