Fast and Efficient CNC Communications
Taking a lean approach to manufacturing means eliminating waste and reducing non-value adding activities for which fast, effective and simple shop floor communications are key. An integral component of Tricorn NMS is our easily maintained shop floor communications and data management control system. NC programs can be filed on either the host PC or company server if networked, thus providing a more efficient method of working using fast and reliable file management that will ultimately help reduce errors. Manufacturing data is delivered directly to the shop floor where machine operators have access to the files stored on a remote server.
Complete job information packs containing all the manufacturing data pertaining to an operation or component are available, with the additional flexibility of viewing, editing and manipulation of file types, based on user access privileges. A graphical file status indicator provides confidence that all file transfers are controlled and the system is able to automatically restrict access to NC programs according to their status. This type of systematic control of manufacturing data can underpin your internal quality control procedures.
The manufacturing data required for each CNC operation can be combined into a single job information pack. The data can include: NC programs, routing data, tool lists, set up sheets, photographs, NC simulation videos, etc. in any of the recognized formats.
The filing structure is categorised to suit and can be either per machine based or component based with sub operations. The job information packs can be filed as folders in Explorer, in Excel spreadsheets or with an SQL database structure, with all the files being viewable on the shop floor, either individually or all simultaneously within the advanced viewer.
