Start Your Digital Transformation

eFlex's Manufacturing Integrated Platform (MIP) solutions deliver a new level of plant floor control, visibility and error proofing – making it easier than ever before to configure and manage processes, standardize work instructions and ensure quality standards are always met.  

While the cost of traditional layers on the plant floor can be extremely expensive and labor intense – from hardware and integration costs to programming and data analysis needs, MIP provides significant cost savings and reduces the need for separate layers on the plant floor – PLCs, HMIs, SCADA, and MES/MOM systems.   One application environment with one common navigation and flow from the control of I/O at the sensor level to advanced analytics reporting. 

While MIP reduces the need for layers on the plant floor, it does provide  connectivity and direct control covering a wide range of PLCs, sensors, applications and virtually any data source.  A flexible, scalable solution that grows with you!
