Real-time view of machine status
CNC Machine Monitoring & Alerting
Automatic and manual collection of productive and non-productive events occurring on CNC and manual machine tools can be both captured and selected from 64 user definable activities. Each operating condition and status change can be derived automatically (e.g. cycle start or alarm condition) via signals received from the machine or manually entered (e.g. waiting parts) by selecting the defined activity on the local PC screen. All data collected is date and time stamped, including the duration of each event, and can be viewed as an event list or be exported and stored for evaluation purposes using spreadsheets or Machine Utilisation Analysis and OEE Reports.
The Factory Status module can be configured to provide a dynamic real time view of the shop environment showing current machine status and current job information. Multiple licences of the Factory Status module can extend this real time information availability to management or supervisory personnel anywhere in your organisation.
In the event of machine alarms and stoppages it is possible, via the Tricorn Machine Monitoring solution, to generate automatic status conditions represented as colour coded icons. The system can be configured to utilise these conditions to automatically generate emails and SMS to supportive personnel, e.g. maintenance staff.
