Beyond Paperless: Improve Your Shop’s Accuracy, Speed, and Communication with Real-Time Machine Data

May 11, 2021 |

Explore the benefits of moving your CNC machine shop to a paperless Industry 4.0 platform.

Many manufacturers still rely on traditional pen-and-paper solutions. ERP systems try to digitize some tasks, but still rely on manual data entry. A true Industry 4.0 solution goes beyond adding tablets to the shop floor—it means collecting data directly from your machine tools.

Join Excellerant as they share practical examples of how your shop can turn IIoT-powered manufacturing into a competitive advantage.

Agenda:

  • How a true Industry 4.0 approach to paperless manufacturing differs from simply adding tablets to your shop floor
  • How direct-from-machine data helps eliminate human errors in part counts, time logs, and quality processes
  • The value of real-time data versus the data lag caused by traditional paper-based reporting
  • The (often) overlooked benefits of a context-aware communication platform
