Cogiscan partners with Critical Manufacturing

Collaboration accelerates digital transformation for electronics manufacturers


Cogiscan Inc. Bromont QC, a leading connectivity solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, has partnered with Critical Manufacturing to deliver smart factory solutions for electronics manufacturers. 

Critical Manufacturing’s Augmented MES solutions, in combination with Cogiscan’s Co-NECT machine connectivity technology, will aim to deliver solutions that allow electronics manufacturers to achieve the digital transformation necessary to revolutionize their operations. Based in Porto, Portugal, Critical Manufacturing is a global leader in the area of MES for Industry 4.0.

The joint solutions resulting from this partnership will deliver both the deep machine connectivity and robust MES business logic enabling the high performance necessary to succeed in a highly competitive, rapidly changing environment. The end result will be enhanced productivity and quality for customers through modern, data-driven manufacturing execution.

Data is the new oil within manufacturing

Cogiscan has been partnering for many years with ASM SMT Solutions, the primary SMT equipment business segment of ASMPT, which made a strategic investment in Critical Manufacturing during August of 2018. Therefore, this new partnership with Critical Manufacturing is a natural extension of that successful long-term collaboration.

“As Industry and individual companies proceed along the path of smart factory evolution, it becomes more and more apparent that data is the new oil that will enable many of the changes we are predicting and seeing within manufacturing,” says Dave Trail VP – SMT & electronics business unit at Critical Manufacturing.

“Our Co-NECT platform, combined with Critical Manufacturing’s Industry-4.0 ready MES platform, will help customers realize their vision of the factory of the future,” adds Greg Benoit, director of business development at Cogiscan.
