Metal Fabrication.

Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing MES (manufacturing execution system) software tailored to the Metal Fabrication industry to manage and optimise manufacturing operations and processes involved in the creation and production of metal structures, components, and products through various fabrication processes.

LYNQ MES offers a comprehensive solution for metal fabrication companies, globally, to streamline their operations and enhance product quality.


MES in the Metal Fabrication industry.

MES plays a pivotal role in managing and optimising manufacturing operations and processes related to metal fabrication in a wide range of industries, including construction, automotive, aerospace, energy, machinery, and more.

  • Improve efficiency.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Minimise loss.

In the metal fabrication industry, MES can help significantly with cost savings by increasing productivity, reducing downtime, improving resource utilisation and with better quality control. By providing manufacturers with data-driven insights, they can make more cost-effective and efficient decisions.

On average, an metal fabrication manufacturer of 50 resources (employees plus machines) could save $28,000 per month by using LYNQ MES. ROI calculator >>

Key features.

  1. Advanced planning and scheduling.

    Control complex production schedules, auto-schedule production, allocate resources for optimum productive hours and track the performance of your entire manufacturing operation against production targets. Advanced planning and data analysis tools for the metal fabrication industry. Plan >>

  2. Data collection.

    Collect data on the production line, how efficiently it is performing and identify where losses are occurring. Effective shop-floor data capture software enables a manufacturer to know exactly what is happening, in real-time, for end-to-end traceability of raw materials, components and assembly, improving defect detection and quality control at every step.  Track >>

  3. Automate production.

    With automatic data capture from machines, standardised workflows, accelerated business processes and smart quality control. Access and report on manufacturing data in the click of a button to streamline operations, work as productively as possible and reduce manual intervention. Automate >>

  4. Analyse data.

    Gain intelligent insight into your metal fabrication manufacturing data. Know exactly what is happening at every stage of production and be able to use this data to make process improvements; saving time and increasing production. Build reports with ease and view data dashboards on operations via any connected device. Analyse >>

  5. Optimise manufacturing.

    Gain tools to communicate more effectively via instant messaging. Move away from paper based systems with online jobs, online schedules and a plan that is accessible by everyone via laptops or tablets. Identify and address issues promptly with automatic alerts and notifications, connecting shop-floor employees with management. Optimise >>

Performance and efficiency.

Performance and efficiency.

Forming and processing durable materials is energy intensive. Profitability is often marginal. Essential fluids, including lubricants and solvents are expensive and hazardous and must be kept out of the environment.

Real-time monitoring will detect deviation from performance specification. Unexplained temperature variations in machinery should be alerted automatically, without waiting for breakdowns, polluting leakages, expensive repairs and unscheduled downtime.

The Challenge Series: How do I analyse manufacturing data?
Fluctuating demand.

Fluctuating demand.

Forecasting demand is hard. Material lead times can be long. High inventory levels give security but tie up capital. Excess time in any process is costly. Profitability and competitiveness require inventory levels to be balanced against actual demand.

Real-time, paperless visibility of production processes, downtime alerts and collaborative messaging within the factory ensure operational transparency and efficiency. Clear visibility helps to identify opportunities to shorten process time and take out waste. Shorter job times enhance responsiveness to market conditions and reduce the need for a large inventory.

The Challenge Series: How to avoid drowning in unnecessary paperwork


Production floors can be dangerous places. Problems with machinery can cause accidents or injuries, if undetected. Employee behaviour is crucial in maintaining a safe work environment.

Real-time monitoring will provide reliable data on machine conditions. Collaborative messaging and operator monitoring ensure compliance with performance standards.

Planning for the Unplannable
Pollution and compliance.

Pollution and compliance.

Essential fluids are potentially hazardous, to operators and the environment. Poor fluid condition compromises machine performance. Excessive consumption and replacement compromises profitability.

Real-time industrial fluid condition monitoring, linked directly to production planning software, maintains machine performance and extends maintenance intervals and equipment lifetime. Automated data collection reduces downtime and helps to cut energy consumption.

Moving Towards Greener Manufacturing

“LYNQ MES is great for us as it can optimise the way things need to run in a sequence that makes the most sense, it’s really changed the dynamic of how we solve issues and has had a huge impact on how efficiently we can work.”
