EFE Laboratories, Philadelphia’s oldest contract manufacturer and OEM of electromechanical engineering solutions for communications, industrial controls, aerospace, and medical device industries, announced today the launch of its free tablet application, “EFE Engineer’s Companion,” available for iOS devices. The app is designed to bring innovation to the manufacturing industry by modernizing an indispensable engineering tool known as the Screw Data Selector, used for determining sizes of various screws, threads, drills, and holes.
The EFE Engineer’s Companion App, provides engineers with a modern, simple and streamlined solution to help increase operations and improve efficiency. The app has the same functionality as the Screw Data Selector, which serves as a primary source for drafting supplies and drawing equipment, however it is now readily available for manufacturers with the touch of a finger, presenting information in a much faster way on a large display making it effortless to scan the data.
“The EFE Engineer’s Companion app is just one of many ways we are looking to optimize workflow and modernize the way we work, says Kip Anthony, President of EFE Laboratories. I am deeply committed to not only improving the business of EFE Labs, but the manufacturing industry as a whole, and for engineers who remember digging trough big books and referencing a drawer full of tools, this app creates a simple, modernized solution that is in-line with today’s technology.”
EFE Labs is a $10 million revenue contract manufacturing company that has been in business for more than 50 years, experiencing exponential growth since its inception.
The EFE Engineer’s Companion app is now available to download for free in the iTunes store, with an Android version soon to follow.
