ficonTEC Service GmbH of Achim, Germany, and Adapdix Corporation of Pleasanton, CA (USA,) announced that they have entered into a strategic agreement to implement Adapdix' EdgeOps™ platform technology within ficonTEC's advanced photonics production systems. With the integration of an AI / Machine Learning layer to monitor, predict and appropriately adapt operation-critical process steps, overall system reliability and performance can be improved, thus creating a further level of sophistication and differentiation for ficonTEC's machine systems, the companies said

EdgeOps is described by Adapdix as a market-leading AI/ML platform and software engine that works by tapping into the wealth of data generated by ficonTEC's comprehensive software control interface, Process Control Master (PCM). PCM automatically logs real-time positional, vibrational, environmental and physical/optical performance data for all system modules and customer process steps; this data is then utilized by the EdgeOps software to perform predictive analytics designed to realize the full potential of this data for optimization purposes.

According to Torsten Vahrenkamp, ficonTEC CEO, “Through the addition of EdgeOps into our software we integrate access to predictive maintenance technology for the customer. This helps streamline real-time monitoring, greatly simplifies the establishment of process and machine metrics, and enables the development of low-latency adaptive maintenance capability - in particular vital for installations operating at the Edge.”

ficonTEC customers will be able to trial and ultimately select subscription-based add-ons through the company's newly launched ‘Performance Services'. Tailored packages variously targeted at collation and visualization of machine-level operational data serve predictive analytics and facilitate self-optimization, the company said. This development not only underlines and strengthens ficonTEC's leadership position in the photonics manufacturing space, it additionally establishes a significant growth path for ficonTEC production systems in modern volume manufacturing sectors (Industry 4.0, IIoT, sensors and more), they said.

Anthony Hill, Adapdix CEO, adds, "We have already successfully deployed multiple systems for key device manufacturers, demonstrating a measurable reduction in downtime and increased production yield. By handing control to the systems operators in this way, they can expect a tractable improvement in operational performance, leading to lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). Taking all aspects together, device manufacturers themselves can better leverage their own competitive edge in the market."

More information is available by contacting ficonTEC or Adapdix directly.
