Plymouth, Michigan - RedViking, a leading supplier of test stands and advanced manufacturing software, announces release of the Argonaut™ manufacturing performance platform. Unlike traditional MES systems, the Argonaut™ platform and its applications architecture allow companies of all sizes to buy only the digital manufacturing apps they need, deploy them to specific locations and then manage them from a central location. This new software and application suite has numerous benefits for the small and mid-sized members of the supply chain in various industrial manufacturing sectors, including automotive, off-highway and others.


Argonaut™ is flexible, with specific apps and reports that can be deployed to targeted locations and users. The manufacturing performance platform is secure and affordable, as there is centralized control of the app deployment with SSL encryption and users can buy only the apps they need for specific tasks or production jobs. Scalability and simplified configuration are also key. Apps can easily be added, updated and removed in addition to being deployed onsite or from a cloud-based server. Argonaut ™ is centrally controlled, rolling out updated deployments to reduce downtime.

The Argonaut ™ manufacturing performance platform contains core software to support apps such as scheduling, user configuration definition, production models, device management and reporting framework. Additional features include the IIoT Gateway, Lineage, Watchtower, Pack Out, Landfall and Scroll. The IIoT Gateway allows PLC data to be broadcast to subscribers for interpretation and analysis. Lineage is a tracking and traceability system and Watchtower is a factory information system for process management and reporting. Pack Out tracks completion of assemblies and products either to the next stage of production or shipment, while Landfall accommodates any manufacturing app that needs access to the edge of the production network. Scroll permits video, imaging and website displays to reach specific locations.

For hardware, the Spearhead is an edge-of-network device for Argonaut ™, providing a user interface and communications gateway for plant floor equipment such as PLCs, torque tools and bar code scanners.

Pricing information is available upon request. Because every customers integration requirements are different, initial pricing will vary, but capital expense is minimized by RedViking. Argonaut™ is designed to be an affordable, flexible alternative to a typical MES.

RedViking designs and builds solutions to difficult manufacturing challenges. Headquartered in Plymouth, MI, with engineering centers in Raleigh, NC and Corpus Christi, TX, RedViking partners with automotive, aerospace, commercial vehicle, off-highway, marine and defense manufacturers all over the world.
