Machine Monitoring for High Volume Swiss Manufaturing
In an industry with razor thin margins, today’s top Swiss-style manufacturers understand the major key to growth and success is getting the most productivity out of their machines.
However, most Swiss manufacturers have little to no visibility into production efficiency and machine utilization. Current, manual methods of measurement and data collection can be time consuming, inaccurate, and outdated.
MachineMetrics improves production efficiency in Swiss Manufacturing with:
- Real-time dashboards offer visualization of utilization, parts vs goal, OEE, set-up tracking, and machine status.
- Instant notifications via text and email when a machine goes inactive or when a machine falls behind its production goals allowing factory workers to respond to problems immediately.
- Reduce downtime with an operator interface mounted right at the machine for categorizing downtime in real-time that’s easy to use and engaging. Pareto charts are generated automatically from this data.
- Motivate operators and improve accountability by setting machine uptime or OEE goals that are viewable from operator interfaces, and shop-floor dashboards.
- Detailed Machine Analytics that will report all machine information such as faults, programs, cycles, status, overrides in a timeline view, and exportable for any period of time.
- Detailed Job Analytics that will report on how long a job took to run, downtime & quality pareto, setup times, and OEE job efficiency.
- Track Quality in Real-Time eliminating the need for paper NCR's and allowing quality managers to react immediately when an operator rejects parts.
- Simple Machine Integration for Marubeni Citizen-Cincom machines with M700 controls, and Star, Tsugami, and Hanwah machines with FANUC i-Series controls. MachineMetrics integrators can come on site to connect to older equipment. No need for expensive IT hardware and support.
“MachineMetrics enabled Carolina Precision Manufacturing to increase capacity by $1.5 million in 2016 with no additional machines” - Gary Bruner, CEO, Carolina Precision Manufacturing
