Tracking Machine Utilization on Older Machines

June 26, 2021 #MachineMonitoring #DataXchange

 

A well-maintained CNC machine that’s properly cared for can operate for decades. The downside of a 20+ year old machine is it’s dated technology. Over time, new technology that provide tools to capture machine data have been added to machines. That doesn’t mean your older CNC machines are left behind. There are ways to capture valuable machine data with hardware and machine monitoring software.

 

Tracking machine utilization on older machines can be done using a combination of low-cost hardware and supporting machine monitoring software. The SRC is a low-cost hardware that comes programmed out the box to work with the machine monitoring software, DataXchange and your machine. It can be connected to either a wired or wireless Ethernet adapter and is capable of monitoring various signals (low/high voltage or analog) for data collection.  The hardware works great for monitoring stack lights to detect green, yellow, red, and flashing conditions, as well as other digital signals from equipment. The machine monitoring software captures the data from the hardware and provides the user various options to display it.

 

In addition to Machine Monitoring Systems, Nexas America offers a variety of CNC Communication software including DNC Systems and DNC System Add-on tools for third party DNC Software packages.

Machine Monitoring - An Incremental Approach

July 8, 2021 #MachineMonitoring #DataXchange

 

A properly implemented Machine Monitoring System can save your company thousands of dollars per machine per year. Conservative estimates and real-life experiences show that a shop with 40 CNCs can save $250,000 or more per year.

 

But, implementing a full-scale Machine Monitoring System can be a big investment for a facility.  And, even though the pay-back is a matter of months, that investment must compete with other capital needs.

Machine Monitoring

DataXchange, sold and supported by Nexas America, LLC, is a fully-scalable system that lets you start small to see immediate benefits, then expand as time and budgets allow.

 

The DataXchange cloud-based model requires only a PC with an internet connection. No dedicated server or database.  No IT maintenance for site server support.   There is a low-cost monthly service fee per CNC that can be canceled at any time with no penalties.  (Note: A site-based license as also available.  Many clients start with a cloud implementation then transfer to a site license once they see the benefits of the system.)  

In addition to Machine Monitoring Systems, Nexas America offers a variety of CNC Communication software including DNC Systems and DNC System Add-on tools for third party DNC Software packages.
