Kitamura’s Anywhere-Remote IIoT platform includes email status updates and machine monitoring software suites that range from basic plug-and-play packages to those that are customized to suit each individual customer’s application. It has an MTConnect-ready adaptor. All these features are powered by FactoryWiz Monitoring & DNC.

Anywhere-Remote email status update technology enables the user to automatically receive live machine production data anywhere, anytime via email to desktop, smartphones and mobile devices based on preset variables. Real-time machine production alarms, messages and cycle information can be received remotely via Kitamura’s Arumatik-Mi control. It generates machine status updates for at-a-glance review of how the shop floor is performing, allowing operators to easily spot and correct any errors or bottlenecks. Operators can analyze periodic status events at specific intervals by customer-specified metrics. A variable change email component enables the end user to specify variables that they wish to monitor within their shop environment. The software can transmit virtually any type of a reminder, notification or update.

The basic machine monitoring suite boosts production by collecting live, unbiased shopfloor data, creating baseline metrics and identifying process improvement opportunities. Status and reports for machining centers are available 24/7 on large displays, desktop monitors and all mobile devices.

The basic suite also includes configurable dashboard displays showing a variety of information in real time, providing visual manufacturing material to all departments. Customers can customize the program to suit their needs.
