Shop Floor Automations NewsletterThe following is a January 2011 Shop Floor Automations newsletter archive.

As we move forward in 2011, we are excited about the rebound in the manufacturing industry.  Business is improving and the economy is getting stronger.  We have a few new products that will help to keep American manufacturing companies organized and competitive.

* Machine Monitoring and Data Collection *
Collect data real-time data from the shop floor on every piece of equipment including CNC machines network-based, RS232,  wireless or existing PLC interfaces.  Instantly capture cycle, idle, alarm, setup and more.  Even better view the data across the web or on your Smart Phone.

* Add USB Memory to your CNC*

The USB Connect device acts as an interface between commercially available USB flash memory and any CNC control with an available RS232 port. Machine tool files can be sent from CNC memory to the USB key, USB key to CNC memory or drip-fed (DNC) from the USB key. Flexible DNC firmware is built into the USB Connect unit allowing connection to just about any machine tool CNC control.
The USB Connect is also available as a pendant or portable model and supports the Mazak CMT format.
