Moving from Reactive to Proactive with Machine Tool Data Collection
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, December 15, 2021 -
Data is an increasingly valuable resource in the world of manufacturing. With machine tools there are hundreds of data points to pull from to get a better picture of overall performance. Collecting this data and being able to manage it empowers your shop's ability in better decision making which increases profitability, improves product and services, and overall customer satisfaction. But what does this all really mean?
Connectivity gives you increased visibility into your operations and allows your shop to make better business decisions. With predictive analytics, your shop is able to move away from being reactive, becoming more predictive and proactive. This affords you the ability to quickly pinpoint inefficiencies in production, but shop floor productivity is really only the tip of the iceberg.
That is why your teams need to be equipped with the right resources to pull data from the equipment and manage it. These data backed decisions will not only allow for continued success, but also improvement- becoming one of your most important assets.
The Path to Improving Data Visibility
Shibaura Machine offers modern CNC technologies that afford shops an easier way to collect and manage their data. From monitoring the status of machine operations, to predicting maintenance needs, improved real time performance data visibility and management allows for smarter decision making which positively impacts productivity and the shop's bottom line.
Being able to collect, manage, and analyze data between systems means:
- Enhanced visibility to identify roadblocks
- Better prioritization of tasks
- Ability to rapidly adapt to changing conditions
- Improved asset investment
All this adds up to improved ROI. When your shop manages and analyzes real time data with ease you can start optimizing machine productivity, implementing a preventative maintenance schedule, and in turn improving the reliability of your machine tool.
