FABTECH 2012: Shop-Floor Software
The new ShopFloorConnect software features expanded capabilities for the discrete manufacturing, packaging, and food and beverage industries. Software package collects data from presses, press brakes, laser cutting machines, tube lasers, turret presses, machining centers, automated saws, welders, injection molders, paint lines and packaging machines. System displays real-time status information for all machines on your PC or mobile device—without having to install any special software. It automatically delivers reports showing downtime analysis, OEE, and provides the vital real-time data that is missing from many ERP and MES systems. It comes factory-configured to communicate directly over your LAN with the ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI) installed on any machine, and using only two readily-available control signals, it can track the machine’s operating status, production rate, and parts count with no operator involvement.
