Aegis Software, Europlacer extend reseller agreement
Aegis Software has extended its 20-plus year reseller agreement covering its FactoryLogix platform with Europlacer to China.
Europlacer is the first placement systems provider to achieve IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) qualification, thereby enabling “plug & play” IIoT connectivity with Aegis’ FactoryLogix Platform, as well as any CFX-qualified factory information systems.
It means manufacturers can leverage IIoT data to monitor, control, and improve factory automation without requiring IIoT middleware or custom coding.
“Expanding the relationship to China was the next logical step in helping electronics manufacturers seamlessly implement Industry 4.0 best practices to drive a smarter factory,” John Perrotta, Group Sales and Services Officer , stated. “Additionally, Europlacer and Aegis were among the founding members of the IPC select committee formed to define and develop the CFX standard. It is great to see the standard come to life and witness first-hand the tangible benefits our joint customers can achieve. We are very proud to be the first placement systems provider to achieve IPC CFX qualification and provide “plug & play” data exchange capabilities with other CFX-compliant machines and systems, like Aegis’ FactoryLogix platform.”
“Now more than ever, manufacturers are seeking ways to become more agile and resilient. Foundational to achieving that desired agility and resiliency is a factory that can support seamless connectivity of machines, systems, and devices to provide the necessary levels of control, visibility, and efficiency without complexity, endless customization, or high costs. Europlacer and Aegis share a common goal of enabling factories of any size worldwide to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits. We are very proud of the long-standing synergistic and collaborative relationship that we have with Europlacer and look forward to continued success,” stated Jason Spera, CEO, and Co-Founder, Aegis Software.
