Software for manufacturing

Long tradition, innovative softwares

MCE is the IT division of MCM. For the last 30 years it supported the success of MCM's flexible production systems. MCE, combining production expertise and a systematic approach to research and development, provides a new layer of strategic services to support manufacturing, in modern machining shop floors.


The strongest and most succesful feature in our offer is the deep know-how on how to integrate technical data (describing production process) and management data relevant for get the work done


Our capacity to directly interface machine control systems, together with the knowledge we have of their operating modes, arise from 30 years of continuous development in the industrial automation sector. This experience and our skills in deploying custom solutions, enabled us to build integrated solutions for manufacturing, which seamlessly range from sensors to enterprise Information management system.


Our solutions are not a mere re-proposition of some old industrial accounting solutions, as most of the so called Manufacturing Execution Systems do. They define, in a new and bold way, abstractions to model machining resources in the most effective way to support their operations.


We design software services able to exploit the whole potential flexibility of modern production lines. At the same time, developing software able to make critical decisions, improve production’s autonomy.

Our Team

This is the team managing and developing MCE software solutions.


Deploying an effective and reliable software. That's how we do it.
