New Remote Monitoring Tools for Grinding Production



ANCA's new Management Suite helps provide customers the technology to monitor the performance of their machines remotely and enables companies to run smart factories by providing live production information to make data-based decisions for operational improvements.

Management Suite monitors machine and production in real time and delivers up-to-date information, enhancing visibility and control in manufacturing operations, and reduces costly machine downtime by immediately notifying when a machine has ceased production, with reasons for the stoppage via an email or SMS to the relevant personnel. It provides complete visibility of the machine status and activity from the office PC or from anywhere in the world if the user is logged into the company's server.

CNC grinding machines are often set up to produce over weekends when the plant is not occupied. Management Suite avoids the need to staff on weekends as it allows a team to monitor production, getting immediate notification if trouble occurs. This ability supports production with minimal interruption.

Data analytics help improve business processes and this new software suite has been designed to provide as much intelligence as possible on machine performance in a simple to use interface. "The machine analytics provided by ANCA Management Suite can be used to produce highly accurate reports on machine usage, helping to reduce waste and increase overall equipment efficiency," said a company spokesperson.

ANCA Management Suite features:

  • Tool Management maintains revision control of grinding programs, allowing users to easily revert to older versions. Users can also visually identify program changes using the file difference tool.
  • Wheel Management is a central inventory for wheels and wheel packs. It provides a platform to easily share wheel packs and qualification data between machines. It also has a handy search function so that operators can easily find what they are looking for. Another key feature of the Wheel Management product is the differentiation between simulator qualified wheels, which prevents the usage of actual wheels on machines to avoid collisions and damages to machine and wheel packs.
  • RedaX is a remote data analytics real time monitoring solution for machines. Its open platform communication unified architecture is part of RedaX and runs on machines to monitor and broadcast machine data. From this the client can consolidate the findings on a web page that is displayed in a real-time web browser. For a demonstration, see youtube.com/watch?v=t8zYEAaeClE
