Improve Efficiency with CNC Machine Monitoring Solutions
If your machines aren’t running to capacity, your efficiency – and profitability – are at risk. Machine downtime tracking is imperative. CNC ManuFactory will work with you to ensure that you have the machine data required to help you make more informed production management decisions with eNETDNC’s CNC Machine Monitoring Solutions. With this state-of-the-art system, operator log-ins, machine status, cycle times, and preventative maintenance information can be monitored in real-time and stored for export into Excel or Access for further analysis. The hardware is comprised of industrial grade components, with surge protection up to 20kV. The software is compatible with all brands of CNC machinery and standard network security. And all of our products are made totally in the U.S.A.
How Does It Work?
When a machine is down, the operator can be required to put in a code corresponding to a predetermined list of reasons. An alert can then be sent to specific distribution lists via e-mail or text message. For example, if the code for “out of material” is entered, a material handler can be alerted. If the code for “tool breakage” is entered, tool crib can be notified. Down codes and notification distribution can be customized according to each customer’s application. Real time monitoring also tracks how often a machine is operating during a shift, holding operators accountable for their production rates. By requiring operators to log in to the machine, management can more accurately track labor costs for a given part number or machine cycle.
Software easily interfaces with existing networking systems and runs on all versions of Microsoft Windows. Front office personnel and floor management can access a dashboard that provides a snapshot of the shop floor including machine status and current cycle time. These dashboards provide a valuable tool for management to supervise machines and personnel through a central hub, providing accurate machine downtime tracking
