South Bend, Indiana – August 16, 2016.

SYSCON-PlantStar—a real-time machine data acquisition systems provider—is forming a partnership with Axiomtek to support PlantStar’s U.S.-based customers with manufacturing facilities in Asia. The alliance is an extension of an already successful relationship between the companies as Axiomtek supplies components for PlantStar hardware.

Installation and System Support 
Axiomtek is one of the major design and manufacturing companies in the industrial and embedded computer field. The company also employs an international service network. “We are currently training Axiomtek personnel on the installation and system support of PlantStar products. We already have commitments from U.S. manufacturers to install PlantStar systems in Asia beginning the second half of 2017,” said Lary Johnson, General Manager for SYSCON-PlantStar.

Benefits of Plant Monitoring Systems in Asia
SYSCON-PlantStar’s plant monitoring and data acquisition systems are ideally suited for companies that are establishing facilities in Asia. “It’s very difficult to monitor what is happening in a manufacturing facility that is thousands of miles away based on paper or verbal accounts,” said Mr. Johnson. “Our systems allow managers in the U.S. to see real-time data gathered directly from the equipment on the shop floor in their oversees facilities.”

Many of PlantStar’s U.S. customers with facilities in Asia are manufacturers of plastic and metal components for industrial and consumer use. However, for companies that manufacture medical parts in Asia, SYSCON-PlantStar specializes in helping facilities meet or exceed FDA certification requirements with traceability through barcoding, process analysis and recording, reporting of labor and materials, and digital documentation.
