Machine Monitoring | Machine Monitoring System | SFA

Machine Monitoring gives you the ability to see what your machines are doing in real-time. The shop floor machine monitoring system software processes and collects machine data using software, MTConnect, Fanuc FOCAS, custom macros, or hardware devices. Optional machine data collection terminals can be used for additional operator input. Runtime, downtime, & machine monitoring OEE data is presented via dashboards, historical reports & charts. Emails or texts can be sent to notify you of production issues on the shop floor.

Improve your lean manufacturing process by supplying accurate shop floor productivity metrics to improve operations & make better decisions. Enjoy automatic, error-free, & unattended machine monitoring for events such as job start/end, setup start/end, log on/off, cycle start/end, & more. Real-time production monitoring data collected includes cycle time, idle time, setup time, teardown time, machine downtime, & scrap reasons.

Drive machine monitoring improvements based on real-time data. In today’s competitive manufacturing environment, efficiency is your MVP. Increase machine up-time & drive innovation on your shop floor. What is the overall equipment effectiveness formula? MFG integrators know how to obtain CNC OEE!
