Powerful CNC equipment monitoring platform
CNC equipment is being used by more and more medium-sized manufacturing companies, and therefore the management on CNC equipment has become the big concern of the industry insiders. In this area, we do not have a sufficient domestic talent pool. The leaders of the projects must possess the expertise in both CNC equipment and the IT industry; such talents are rare in the country. However, something called CNC equipment monitoring platform has appeared in the market, which perhaps can solve the problem for enterprises.
The full name of the so-called “monitoring platform” is “digital manufacturing integrated control system”, which is an information platform based on the Ethernet, performing monitoring, control and management over workshops. It links digitize production equipment and the production control information, thus becoming an effective means for production control at workshops, providing accurate data and timely information feedback. This technology first appeared in the automobile production lines; however, the work types on automobile production lines are relatively simple, which is easy to manage with the CNC equipment. The project team of Navistar International had the single production line monitoring extended to the all-round CNC equipment monitoring in the further researches. Currently, the system has realized integrated management on the same platform regardless of equipment brands.
Many people will think that this is nothing but a monitoring system? In fact, these are two entirely different concepts. The terminal of the CNC equipment monitoring platform can not only display the operation of the monitored equipment, but also provoke alarms over faulty devices in a timely manner. At the same time, these monitoring data is uploaded to the management system. The statistic data can be presented graphically in daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly running times, cutting times, and spindle running times. The information is fairly comprehensive.
