Machine monitoring automates reporting

Article-Machine monitoring automates reporting

Tracking machine status, analyzing production performance, and forecasting potential bottlenecks are among the tasks accomplished by the ProductionACE monitoring system. The system tracks machine production in real time, eliminating the need for manual data analysis, and it also helps automate production scheduling and job progress tracking. Constant reports on cycle time, fill and inject time, capacity, uptime, yield, and utilization track machine performance. The data can be broken down by individual press, product, or shift to pinpoint problems and track manufacturing on a variety of levels. This data can then be used to formulate costing methods, delivery times, and maintenance schedules. The system gathers information through data transducers that use the electrical signals from the press to submit data to the Windows-based ProductionACE software. The software starts
at $2745, and the individual transducers are priced at $295.
