Automation Systems Featured



Fastems, LLC has announced that the company will have its automation systems exhibited at three IMTS booth locations. First, Fastems will unveil its new expandable Flexible Manufacturing System - the FMS ONE - in Okuma America Corporation's booth. Second, a Fastems FPC-1500 Flexible Pallet Container system will be integrated with two Niigata machining centers in SNK America's booth. At both locations, visitors can see these fully automated cells using MMS5 Fastems Manufacturing Management Software - a versatile FMS control systems that can grow from the cell to integrate with other plant-wide systems, helping manufacturers evolve to an Industry 4.0 factory. And third, a fully featured scale model of Fastems Multi-Level FMS System will be exhibited at the Fastems booth.

Fastems personnel will be on hand at all three booth sites to demonstrate and explain the systems, along with helping visitors assess whether increasing automation in their companies makes sense, and how different degrees of automation can be achieved with Fastems automation system offerings.

Typical applications of Fastems' automation systems range from joining two machine tools together with a Flexible Pallet Container (FPC), such as the FPC-1500 shown in SNK's booth to flexible manufacturing systems such as the FMS ONE in Okuma's booth. "With a Fastems FPC, manufacturers can begin automating just one machine tool and often realize a return on investment quickly," said a company spokesperson. As demand increases, customers can extend the FPC to accommodate up to three machine tools. The new FMS ONE is a modular and flexible system that offers a range of MMS5 options to match user needs. It handles the logistics and material management and is designed for several common machine tool types.

The scale model at Fastems booth S-9178 will be controlled by a full-size Fastems MMS5 software operator interface. Its capabilities can extend from a single manufacturing cell to a fully integrated shop-wide system. The MMS5 can also be integrated with other manufacturing plant software, such as ERP and MRP systems and is fully compatible with MT Connect.

In addition to the hardware and software of the automation systems, Fastems staff will also discuss its global support services. Highlights of the program include remote technical support, worldwide 24/7 availability, active system monitoring to help customers achieve maximum uptime, comprehensive training programs, a dedicated customer portal to quickly see at a glance the status of the system and more.
