Designed to provide high-level data management, traceability and a standardized workflow, MCS DNC Pro from Vero is a link between ERP, CAD/CAM and production for the medical, aerospace and automotive industries.
Data can be transferred to machine tools with either serial ports or Ethernet connections. The system provides full support for FTP, SMB and NFS protocols to ensure a standard process for managing all NC-related files, no matter what type of machine control needs to be connected, the company says.
Smart network adaptors with embedded DNC functionality are said to reliably transfer data to and from machine tools. The adapters allow remote request of NC programs directly from the machine’s keyboard.
Standardized procedures for all system users guarantee that the right NC files are available only to the correct machine. According to the company, this prevents errors, scrap and machine tool damage.
The solution is designed to logically organize NC part programs working with smart IDs that can be linked to ERP or work-order-related procedures. This standardizing is said to reduce the effort and time required to manage critical production-related data.
An intuitive Task Manager workflow automates document control. All system transactions are automatically logged to ease complete lifecycle documentation.
