How do I keep track and collect CNC machine data?
If you want to collect CNC machine data, there are various methods to collect real-time status information from a CNC.
We have solutions that make it possible to monitor all types of machines and equipment from manual machines, boilers, cell controllers, assembly lines, and of course the obvious, CNC machines. all while providing one interface to see the real-time status and run historical reports.
Collection methods include network-based protocols, MTConnect, wiring PLC’s to electrical points, bar code scanners, RFID’s, manual user input, and more. We also recommend machine monitoring through Predator MDC and Scytec DataXchange.
