Mitsubishi Electric’s IMA adapters are compliant with version 1.31 of the MTConnect standard. MTConnect® is a standard that allows your CNC machines and other electrical equipment from different manufacturers, to share a common “language” enabling monitoring of your entire shop floor. The adapter is a read-only software package made to capture NC data and send it to the agent. The agent then formats the data per the MTConnect standard. Combined with 3rd party software, users are able to see operation status in real time, collect streaming data points from equipment events, and extract machining and operator patterns through data collection. Users can monitor dashboard visualizations, establish metric warning thresholds, or oversee their equipment through a mobile app.
Using the data collected from your CNC control, via our Integrated Machine Analytic (IMA) adapter, allows you to actively monitor, as well as analyze, your production floor in real time. Management and shop floor personnel are able to identify problems or inefficiencies in their production line quickly and take action to remedy the situation. You will see improvements in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) along with a quick Return On Investment (ROI).
Human error and electronic failures can cause data in a machine tool or control to be lost forever. Too often, this results in downtime and unnecessary expenses in troubleshooting support. Having a backup can save hours of downtime and eliminate the need to manually retype data into your machine. Backing up machines in advance of catastrophic, unplanned or planned downtime gives our customers the opportunity to readily and more efficiently get back up and running.
CloudCNC® is a service that offers you a complete backup of your machine’s data, available to you from our servers, 24/7. By purchasing CloudCNC, you can have all pertinent CNC files backed up by a factory-trained Mitsubishi Electric service engineer who is an expert on the control in your machine.
Custom Software Solutions
Adapter customizability and data items outside the MTConnect standard are available to be developed if requested. We can also make customizable software programs utilizing our API to handle any project you may have, from bar code scanner systems to automatic tool offset corrections. If the data can be manipulated in the API, we can create a program for it.
