...enables Club Coffee to understand the root causes of machine downtime and how to convert unutilized time into production," said David McPhail, CEO.  "This should signal to food processors and the sector that MERLIN can increase the efficiency of their operations by monitoring their machines in real-time and increasing overall profitability."
"We developed the online quoting system in support of our customer's need to accelerate innovation through the reduction in 'time to market'. Equally important, however, is our continued focus on delivering quality parts. Our system, in connection with our engineering expertise, facilitates optimization through the reduction of overall assembly part counts, manufacturing simplification, and increased efficiency based on 3D Printing design flexibility.  Further, the online quoting system provides a wide range of applications and materials to potential new customers" says Ashley Nichols, General Manager of 3DMT
He adds that people look for big, tangible returns on investment really quickly. "In reality, it often takes 12 to 18 months for the benefits even to start coming through."
