92 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK 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 winners of the 2021 Manufacturing Leadership Awards. MacLean-Fogg’s Metform Division was awarded in the category of Advanced Analytics Leadership for their Manufacturing 4.0 pilot program in partnership with IoTco. The Manufacturing 4.0 project utilizes two platforms to connect and analyze machine data - Lighthouse, a traditional MES platform used for real-time monitoring and Predictronics (PDX), monitors critical process parameters such as motor amps, axis harmonics, and bearing and bar temperatures. Currently, the project is piloted on the Hatebur AMP 50, the largest hot forming press at Metform, and will be expanded to all 9 remaining Hateburs. The Metform division manufactures forged and machined components for various industries including light vehicles, electric vehicles, heavy truck, agriculture and construction equipment. “We are incredibly thankful to have been nominated for this award by IoTco and recognized as a leader by the National Association of Manufacturers. Though we still have much to learn, we are excited for the innovations to come,” said Steve Wright, General Manager of Metform. For more information visit www. savanna-metform.
