MODUS becomes a member of the PULSE-Community
With MODUS another AOI manufacturer puts its trust in our PULSE solution. The inline test and inspection systems from MODUS are now also connected via the smart, manufacturer-independent shop floor solution, and the associated advantages of the central assistance system are available to customers.
"We are always ready to respond to customer requests. Accordingly, we have quickly advanced the integration of PULSE because we are convinced of the resulting customer benefits," emphasizes Gerald Landt, Managing Director of MODUS.
With PULSE, ASYS pursues the goal of establishing a complete solution for line monitoring in the industry that integrates and networks all systems in production. Thanks to an open interface, integration is possible quickly and easily without particular specification or configuration. MODUS sees significant advantages in this: "The one-time integration of the PULSE interface enables us to provide existing and new customers with an even more valuable software package. Thanks to the predefined standard via the PULSE interface, we can easily activate features and don't have to create them individually for each system," says Luca Fungipani, software developer at MODUS.
PULSE-Community: Successful thanks to openness
With the integration of PULSE MODUS became part of the constantly growing PULSE-Community. The PULSE-Community now comprises over 20 well-known system manufacturers from the electronics industry whose products are "PULSE-capable" thanks to individual connection to the open PULSE interface and thus permit comprehensive system monitoring, for example. The ASYS Group is constantly working on expanding this partner network: "We consistently pursue our goal of offering our customers a solution for their complete line. We believe that in the future we will only be able to react appropriately to customer requirements with openness and manufacturer-independent cooperation," explains Erwin Beck, Senior Vice President Product Management & Marketing at ASYS.
The success of PULSE confirms that we have taken the right path with our strategy of openness. More than 70 PULSE lines are already installed on customers' premises.
PULSE: More than monitoring
Since its product launch in 2015, ASYS has continuously further developed the smart assistance system. Meanwhile PULSE reaches far beyond plant monitoring. Today not only machines can be monitored, but also operated directly from PULSE. Offline programming units are now also anchored in the software, so that PULSE is increasingly becoming the central control tool for production.
