Modern Machine Shop – January 2018

Our customers at R & D Manco were highlighted in a feature piece from Modern Machine Shop (MMS) in their January issue. A big focus of the piece was about machine monitoring software from us, here at Shop Floor Automations.

“Machine monitoring has been another important factor in R&D Manco’s success,” states MMS editor Peter Zelinski. “Gathering basic data on machine status, and studying the data to diagnose and remedy the causes of non-cutting time, has been the shop’s most powerful resource for realizing machining capacity improvements.”

“For older machines or for machines from builders not providing this openness [of Windows-based control], the company has retrofitted the controls with MTConnect adapters from Shop Floor Automations in order to also get these machines into the shop-wide machine monitoring system.”

We encourage you to read more about how machine monitoring is allowing R&D Manco to increase productivity.
