Not only can it connect machines with FANUC CNC’s, but also other peripheral devices (like PLC’s etc.) In addition it contributes to make the machine IoT ready. Information from various sensors can be connected and data can be collected. Download Flyer Your advantages: Connecting different kinds of plant equipment such as machine tools, robots and PLCs Collecting various data of the plant equipment Monitoring and visualizing the collected data Communicating with an upper host system such as a manufacturing execution system (MES) No special hardware required Quick and easy setup Operation management software running on standard PCs. Collect data and monitor the status of your factory’s production equipment Quick and easy setup MT-LINKi is easy to set up and has a scalable system architecture. The data acquisition is managed by a dedicated Collector PC software, whereas the data is stored on a Server PC software. The Server PC also provides a web-based user interface for data access and visualization that can be accessed from any PC or tablet computer on the network with a browser. For small systems with only few machines, Collector PC software and Server PC software can run on a single standard personal computer. Up to 100 machines can be handled by one MT-LINKi server. The production results of large systems with more than 100 machines can be combined with the MT-LINKi Integration Server. State monitoring MT-LINKi enables you to monitor the state of the whole factory at a glance in real-time. Recognize abnormal states of the equipment such as alarms quickly, allowing you to start countermeasures immediately. Overview performance MT-LINKi allows you to review the operational results on machine level. You can review the production results and compare them against the production plan. You also can check machine utilization and find machines that are under-utilized. This enables you to optimize the factory‘s resource planning Diagnostics With MT-LINKi, it is possible to view various diagnostic data such as alarm history, program history, signal history and macro value history. With this, you are able to identify bottlenecks, optimize the production process. MT-LINKi also enables youto schedule automatically generated reports in Excel file format. The report templates can be customized to suit your needs. Easy data transfer MT-LINKi makes it easy to access and transfer data from factory equipment such as machine tools with CNCs, robots and PLCs over a network without going down to the factory floor. MT-LINKi will not only allow you to access FANUC CNCs and robots, but also connect third-party equipment via OPC UA.
