Getting Started with MTConnect
MTConnect is a standardized communication protocol designed to help shops and plants integrate every piece of shopfloor equipment into a manufacturing data system. A new "conductivity guide" explains how to start implementing MTConnect to improve productivity on the shop floor.
Adam Wulfeck at Jet Machine uses an MTConnect-enabled machine monitoring system,
as explained in the October cover story.
The release of the guide is especially timely. MC2, the first major conference dedicated to MTConnect, is scheduled for November 8-10 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Go here for conference details and registration.
