ACT Electronics Standardizes on eMPower Solutions from Tecnomatix

HERZLIA, Israel - March 31, 2004 - Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd., the driving force in manufacturing process management (MPM), today announced that electronic manufacturing solution provider ACT Electronics has standardized on Tecnomatix eMPower solutions across all of its U.S. manufacturing and design facilities. ACT has purchased a number of new licenses for key products in the eMPower PCB Assembly and Test suite from Tecnomatix Unicam, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tecnomatix Technologies. ACT’s decision to standardize on eMPower across all manufacturing facilities in the U.S. will allow the company to:
  • Further optimize its new product introduction (NPI) programs
  • Enhance production line monitoring for faster problem resolution
  • Balance production lines between machines to ensure optimal manufacturing
  • Accelerate NPI debugging by checking part data files prior to transmitting to the machines
  • Improve BOM and CAD importing and better compare BOM data between jobs
  • Better manage libraries of part data files
ACT began using Tecnomatix Unicam products in 1996, and since then over 95% of its programs and processes have been created using software from Tecnomatix, including all of its global part data libraries. "We chose Tecnomatix eM-Assembly Expert as the standard solution for all our U.S. manufacturing sites because of Tecnomatix Unicam’s commitment to our business and their understanding of our technology needs," said Gary Barnier, executive vice president at ACT. "We evaluated the competition and chose Tecnomatix Unicam as our preferred software partner because we are confident in the support they can provide, as well as in their ability to provide the latest and greatest technology." "ACT is a long-time strategic partner of Tecnomatix, and we are pleased to see the relationship continue to develop," said Israel Levy, CEO of Tecnomatix Unicam. "ACT realizes the importance of every strategic advantage in today’s competitive manufacturing market, and understands the benefits of deploying MPM solutions company-wide to accelerate NPI cycles and continue to meet changing customer demands."
