Memex Automation Continued Innovation!

2Dick Morley: Father of the PLCManufacturings Biggest ChallengeMr. Morley, what is the biggest challenge that you see in manufacturing?"Automatic machining and the emerging numerical control started in 1948 and we have not seen a lot of change since. Dave Edstrom, CTO of Memex Automation, and I are working together to utilize Memex's products to solve a major problem which is to make the CNC system automation compatible. Increasing the utilization of both legacy and new assets is critical to a modern company and MERLIN will make that happen."
