Increase Productivity with Automation



Shop Floor Automations (SFA) will share a booth with Scytec and display DataXchange machine monitoring features. There will also be a variety of hardware on display for integrating legacy machines.

DataXchange Version 2018.04.10

Any machine can be connected to DataXchange using MTConnect, FANUC FOCAS and OPC UA. The Data Entry screen provides operators with a simple interface to track machine downtimes and will now include a "notes" field to alert others on the shop floor of critical actions. For example, the machinist can put in notes to alert the Programming or QA Departments on specific issues. This proactive notification system keeps the machine running with less downtime.

New with E-Learning, DataXchange users can take online courses anywhere, any time. Configuring reporting options, software installation, initial configuration, shift options, modifying existing machine data, and understanding the machine data collection sources are just some of the topics covered.

For OEE monitoring, DataXchange customers have the option of monitoring machine data on-premise, or use a Cloud-based option. Customers can get text and email notifications of machine issues. The software is compatible with MTConnect, OPC UA, Fanuc FOCAS, and ModBus.

Okuma Floppy Drive Replacement

SFA offers floppy drive emulator solutions, with plug & play Haas models available and a universal model that fits a large variety of machine makes/models. The newest addition to the hardware products is the Okuma Floppy Connect. This device replaces the floppy drive core in an Okuma machine. The Okuma floppy emulator allows up to 100 disks per USB flash drive, allowing users to hold hundreds of files on a single USB stick.

LAN-USB Connect

Legacy machine owners can extend the life of their machines by adding USB ports, or adding Ethernet capabilities to them. Now, with the LAN-USB Connect from SFA, they can accomplish both goals at once. Operators can drag and drop files to the CNC data server and utilize an Ethernet connection via the FTP protocol. Drip-feeding is accomplished with various protocols including X-modem. If an internal network goes down, it can still operate with the USB port for sending, receiving or drip-feeding.
