Mayday Manufacturing Part of Tailwind Technologies Uses VIMANA for Machine Monitoring
Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/01/2014 -- Mayday Manufacturing successfully uses VIMANA, the manufacturing software platform for improving shop floor production efficiency. Located in Denton, Texas, Mayday is a global supplier of precision bushings, sleeves, pins, and spacers to the aerospace, defense, and homeland security markets. Mayday also produces turned parts that include milled features such as flange flats, slots, grooves, notches, and tangs. Tougher close tolerance components made from high risk raw materials have been a particular success for the company over the last quarter century. Mayday Manufacturing is an operating company of Tailwind Technologies, Inc.
Doug Wulf, VP of Manufacturing at Mayday, shared why the firm entered the site wide selection of the platform by System Insights, “We selected VIMANA due to the fact their system has more value for the buck than the other MTConnect applications we reviewed…and there were many. Also, the software is customizable and virtually any machine tool control can be connected. Finally, we found the technical staff to be of the highest degree of competency. In the end, System Insights and VIMANA scored 1st in all of our evaluation categories.”
Rick Moran, COO of System Insights, echoed the respect for Mayday, and stated, “We were impressed by Mayday’s thorough assessment process and are excited to be working with Doug and his team. VIMANA will be monitoring and analyzing data from over 50 devices at the site that include machine tools from Mazak, Mori Seiki, Star and Brother and coordinate measuring machines from Hexagon Metrology.”
