AHP Merkle relies on optimization potential of PROXIA MES

Modern MES solutions secure knowledge and create transparency

At the hydraulic cylinder manufacturer AHP Merkle in Gottenheim near Freiburg, Germany, they know from experience: “Quality prevails”. Customers can rely one hundred percent on the hydraulic cylinders of the family-run company at all times. AHP Merkle placed the same requirements on the new software solution for manufacturing – and found what they were looking for with the innovative, reliable MES modules from PROXIA.

From old school to forward-looking

Today, PROXIA MES modules are used at AHP Merkle in the entire production, wherever orders are planned. The leap from heavily paper-based processes to a new production level with enhanced MES planning has been successful. The seamless recording of machine data (PROXIA MDE) and production data (PROXIA BDE) as well as their linking ensures continuous transparency and provides a secure basis for all optimization and decision-making processes.
