Marposs Adds Cloud-Based Data Integration to Machine Monitoring Solutions

C-THRU4.0 collects and processes data from multiple machine tools equipped with Artis machine monitoring systems

Published: Monday, December 9, 2019 - 12:00

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs has announced the availability of its new data management software—C-THRU4.0, designed to collect and process data from multiple machine tools equipped with Artis machine monitoring systems via a central hub. This information can be accessed remotely, via an iPad, computer or laptop as well as offering the ability to integrate with MES and higher level ERP systems. The data collected can be used to analyze tool life, machine capability and cost comparisons, as well as alarm tracing and counts, profit and loss accounting, profitability analysis and more, all leading to enhanced productivity and profitability.

The software works by feeding real-time information from the machine tools to a cloud platform network, which can then be accessed and used in either a centralized or decentralized manner. This interconnectivity helps to optimize production flow from preventative maintenance, process stabilization, and quality assurance to resource planning.  Production costs and quality are always transparent and traceable through the statistical recording and evaluation of performance indicators.  

“Prior to this software we had to review data manually,” said Jorge Pena, product manager of Marposs monitoring solutions. “With C-THRU4.0, we can feed the machine monitoring information through the company network configured to their needs and providing access to important data in real-time.”

To initiate C-THRU4.0, data collected from the monitoring processes is coordinated with the customer’s cost and resource information to provide a dashboard that meets the customer’s needs. Any changes coming in from the customer side can be fed back to the machining center. This interconnectivity and data flow supports the move toward the Industrial Internet of Things (iIoT) and Industry 4.0.

Marposs offers a wide selection of real-time, in-process monitoring solutions that optimize standard, as well as very complex, production processes of metal-cutting machine tools.
