Unitron Group B.V. Chooses FactoryLogix’ MES For Medical Device Manufacturing

Unitron to improve operations, ensure traceability, and leverage IIoT data for compliance

Bicester, Oxford UK — Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software, (MOM/MES), announces that Unitron Group B.V. has selected the FactoryLogix IIoT-based MES solution for their factory in the Netherlands.

With over 30 years of experience in manufacturing complex mechatronic and electronic equipment, Unitron is dedicated to creating life-science devices in areas including electrophysiology, optics, ventilators, and heating. With certification to ISO 13485 and Ordinance 169 and compliancy to FDA, Unitron specializes in efficient scalability from prototype to volume for the medical market, covering the European, American, and Japanese markets.

Producing more than 250 different products each year, Unitron’s goal was to implement a modern, IIoT platform-based Smart MES solution, replacing their older system that worked together with an in-house solution.

“In our highly regulated industry, it became essential to streamline our engineering operations, through the implementation of interactive electronic assembly documentation, as well as also providing holistic traceability, which demonstrates compliance,” explains Mario Steel, Operations Manager at Unitron Group B.V., who continues, “We found confidence in Aegis’ proven track record in the Medical market and strong customer base in Europe.”
