The Best Run IGear Software
To Solve Critical Manufacturing Issues.
IGear software essentially runs our entire manufacturing process. We use the ASSIST™ platform to not only record critical process data from nearly every machine in our plant, but to also provide process control and management of nonconforming parts. Viewing production, downtime, detailed part history, and trended data is also an important aspect of the solution. Finally, IGear’s SQUEAKS® IoT platform allows for visualization of the data on mobile devices and production displays. Due to the success of the system, IGear has now become the Advanced Traceability standard for all of JTEKT North America.

“Real-time manufacturing data is a key to proactive manufacturing.
IGear’s CONNECT has helped Martinrea integrate real-time production information with our enterprise resource planning (ERP) system via its scalable and adaptive platform. When you sync shop floor data with ERP systems, everyone becomes part of the same team and proactive decision making becomes contagious.”
