Monitoring For Machine Tools

Related Topics:

Predator machine monitoring and data collection software, from Shop Floor Automations, is updated to support real-time machine monitoring for all Haas CNCs with version 11 or newer firmware. No third party hardware is required because the software uses the RS-232 port, which communicates NC programs to the machine.

The real-time monitoring provides automatic idle time; cycle time; machine alarm; and feed hold status. As an option, a user can be automatically logged on and off when the machine is powered on or off. A real-time dashboard provides information about what is happening out on the shop floor via LCD or plasma monitors. The software will support from 1 to 256 machines simultaneously and runs under Microsoft SQL or an Oracle database.
