[Somers, CT – May 2022] Excellerant, Inc. and TriMech are partnering to give Excellerant’s Collaborative Manufacturing Platform™ wider distribution across the U.S. and Canada. Excellerant’s suite of data collection gathering, monitoring, and reporting hardware and software tools are gaining awareness among manufacturers looking for reliable shop connectivity solutions.
This alignment follows TriMech’s acquisition of the Mastercam businesses of MACDAC Engineering in December 2021. Excellerant was owned by MACDAC Engineering before it incorporated as its own entity after that transaction. Currently, TriMech has 37 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
“We are excited to start this new chapter as an independent company and expanding the reach of our brand and technologies with TriMech’s support,” said Excellerant founder and president John Carpenter.
“Our technology development expertise coupled with TriMech’s reputation for best-in-class engineering and technical service support will help ensure manufacturing clients across North America have access to the solutions they need to effectively manage their shop floor environment.”
— John Carpenter, Excellerant founder and president
“TriMech is thrilled to partner with Excellerant,” said TriMech’s CEO Marcel Matte. “After decades of evolutionary development, first starting with DNC solutions back in the 1990s, Excellerant has the hardware and the software knowledge-base and a field-proven new collaborative platform that is robust, reliable, and is gaining rapid adoption in shops across North America. The transformational work of Industry 4.0 in manufacturing is set to grow exponentially in the coming years. Manufacturers are learning the importance of reliable data and what it can do for their businesses. Further, the platform’s compliance with the DoD’s CMMC cybersecurity mandate will be welcomed by our clients in the aerospace sector.”
Excellerant, Inc., is an evolution from WireFreeCNC, which was a product offering of MACDAC Engineering. Excellerant recently trademarked its Collaborative Manufacturing Platform™ which is a server-centralized framework that connects all machine tools (both modern and legacy), integrates real-time data in and out ERP systems, and simplifies collaboration across an entire shop floor. Excellerant simplifies the collection of manufacturing data, allowing assessment of machine performance and utilization quickly, accurately, and objectively.
