The new ShopFloorConnect software features capabilities for the discrete manufacturing, packaging, and food and beverage industries. ShopFloorConnect is now collecting data from metal stamping presses, press-brakes, laser cutting machines, tube lasers, turret presses, machining centers, automated saws, welders, injection molders, paint lines and packaging machines amongst others.
ShopFloorConnect 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, etc, and provides the vital real-time data that is missing from many ERP and MES systems.
ShopFloorConnect is a turn-key solution that is scalable and flexible, and can be quickly implemented into any discrete manufacturing environment. It comes factory-configured to communicate directly over your LAN with the ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI).
The ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI) is installed on any machine, and using only two readily-available control signals can track the machine’s operating status, production rate, and parts count (where applicable) – all with no operator involvement . It also has a touch-screen display which allows the operator to select a downtime reason from a user-configured menu. The SMI has built-in Ethernet connectivity to communicate with the ShopFloorConnect server over your existing network.
