SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE Modern Machine Shop 123 Machine Monitoring System Gives Real-Time KPI, OEE Data Scytec's cloud-based DataXchange machine mon- itoring system reduces downtime by providing live notifications of machine issues via text or email. Its customizable dashboards enable manufacturers to communicate with employees about productivity. It provides key performance indicators (KPIs) and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) data in real time. Machine monitoring such as this can increase productivity by as much as 25 percent, according to Shop Floor Automa- tions, a reseller of the system. The system's updated features include new OEE reports, integration with OPC UA protocol and Caron engineering software. New abilities include multiple parts per hour views, addi- tional rotation interval options and a data entry interface with email notes. The software can be integrated with a range of equipment including CNC machines, robots, grinders, lasers, waterjets and other fabrication machines. | Scytec Consulting Inc. | 720-482-8250 | Shop Floor Automations | 877-611-5825 Shop Floor Automations was tapped by the shop in last month's cover feature in order to connect its older machines with MTConnect adapters.
