CableMES built for the cable industry by the cable industry

Cimteq demonstrates its capabilities at Wire China

Cimteq Ltd exhibited at Wire China on 26-29th September 2018 at Shanghai International New Expo Centre. Wire China is recognized as the largest trade fair for its industry in Wire Asia. The company was showcasing its flagship products CableBuilder and CableMES, a Manufacturing Execution System specifically for the wire and cable manufacturing industry.

Yufei Du, Business Development Manager, APAC, and Matt Rowlands, Manufacturing Systems Engineer, were on hand at Wire China to welcome visitors to our newly branded stand; Yufei explains; “This year’s exhibition has been a great success with the opportunity to meet many wire and cable industry professionals. We did multiple demonstrations each day on both CableMES and CableBuilder and had a 107% uplift on the number of leads generated compared to 2016. We had experts available to demonstrate the capabilities of both CableBuilder and CableMES. Over the last few years, Cimteq has taken a strategic approach to develop the Chinese market and Wire China is the fitting platform to meet professionals from the wire and cable manufacturing industry. We have had some excellent exposure at the exhibition and look forward to working with contacts we have met over the last few days”.

In the past year, Cimteq has been awarded a major contract to implement CableMES from an international manufacturer of custom wire & cable in the USA. The CableMES solution has been implemented to maximize plant production, improve product quality, reduce inventory and ensure on time delivery. As a supervisory system, CableMES offers real-time visibility of the shop floor, production order sequencing, drum & raw material management, tracks and reduces work in progress and is used to uncover hidden production capacity. CableMES is a Manufacturing Execution System designed specifically for the cable manufacturing industry to enable manufacturers to more effectively plan, manage and control every aspect of the manufacturing process. It is powerful and simple to use and helps to keep on top of material and production variances and tracks product quality.

Cimteq won a significant contract from a leading cable manufacturer for the design and manufacturing of cables, to implement CableBuilder to its design and manufacturing hub in China.
