MacLean-Fogg Receives Manufacturing Award for Leadership in Advanced Analytics


MUNDELEIN, III., May 17, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Enabled March 14, 2021, the Manufacturing Leadership Council, a division of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), announced the list of world-class manufacturing companies and individuals recognized as recipients of the 2021 Manufacturing Leadership Awards.

MacLean-Fogg’s Metform division of Savannah, Illinois was awarded in the Advanced Analytics Leadership category for its Manufacturing 4.0 pilot program in partnership with IoTco.

The Manufacturing 4.0 project uses two platforms to connect and analyze machine data. The first, Lighthouse, is a traditional MES platform used for real-time monitoring of production, uptime, downtime, measurement interface, post-production and analysis. The second, Predictronics (PDX), monitors critical process parameters such as motor amps, axis harmonics, and bearing and bar temperatures. PDX learns a machine’s footprint through multivariate analysis and monitors trends in machine condition over time.

Currently, the project is piloted on the Hatebur AMP 50, Metform’s largest hot forming press, and will be extended to the remaining 9 Hatebur. The Metform division manufactures forged and machined components for various industries including light vehicles, electric vehicles, heavy trucks, agriculture and construction equipment.

“We are extremely grateful to have been nominated for this award by IoTco and recognized as a leader by the National Association of Manufacturers. While we still have a lot to learn, we are delighted with the innovations to come,” said Steve wright, Managing Director of Metform.

The winners of the Manufacturing Leadership Awards will be honored on May 19, 2021, during the Manufacturing Leadership Awards virtual gala.
