Solution of machine tool monitoring

 

Introduction

 

IoT Globiots is a comprehensive solution (hardware and software) to monitor machine tool. The solution applies IoT technology based on Internet of Things Globiots platform developed by Daviteq since 2012 and based on Daviteq’s 18 years of experience in industrial instrumentation and control. IoT Globiots could monitor operation for different types of machine tool such as milling machine, lathe machine, boring machine, grinding machine, shearing machine… from different suppliers (Farnuc, Haas, Mazak, Okuma…) from anywhere by using PC, tablet or smartphone.

Main functions

 

Automatically collect machine operation statuses and output, causes of machine downtime, part production start and part production stop
.
View machine key performance indicators for production management, machine management and operator management as below:
♦ Total machine run time ♦ Number of product ♦ % machine performance
♦ Total machine downtime ♦ Number of defective product ♦ % product quality
♦ Total machine production time ♦ Number of qualified product ♦ % machine availability
♦ Total time of each downtime cause ♦ % target achievement ♦ Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)
♦ Part cycle time ♦ Production progress
.
Show report of machine status, total time, output, performance, and production progress in real time and during selected period
.
Immediately notify abnormal alarm and event through web on PC, through application on smartphone and tablet and through user’s email

Typical benefits

 

Heighten effectiveness of production progress monitoring Enhance machine operator productivity
Continuous real time update of production progress assists production manager to handle behind production progress issue timely  and effectively to achieve daily total production plan Knowing real time % production achievement helps operator to adjust his operation to meet the daily machine  production plan. Productivity comparison among operators facilitates them to improve themselves
Reduce machine downtime Increase product quality
Real time update for causes of machine downtime pushes relevant departments (maintenance, material, human resource..) to handle causes of machine downtime effectively and timely Immediate warning of high number or high percentage of defective product  supports QC department and production department to solve problem of product quality in time
Facilitate to optimize production process Promote factory brand name
Analytic reports about downtime causes assist to find out main downtime causes and in charge departments. From that, relevant adjustments and improvements are designed to optimize production progress Factory having online machine monitoring system would build customer trust because customer’s order would be processed and monitored continuously to meet contracted delivery time

 

System deployment

 

Fast system deployment in two steps:

 

Step 1: Install HMI box and connect to machine  tool

 

Touch screen HMI box connects to machine tool to collect machine run status, standby status, alarm status, operation mode…In addition, signal of machine output and one of defective product are connected to HMI box. From screen of HMI box, start of part production, stop of part production, and downtime causes are input by machine operator. The HMI box also views current production progress and summary of current downtime as well as summary of recent downtime.

Step 2: Connect HMI box to server and remotely configure system 

 

HMI box connects to server through cellular network, Local Area Network, or wifi network. HMI collects data of machine statuses, causes of machine downtime, start of production and stop of production and then data from HMI is transmitted to server. Moreover, data of daily production plan and product detail in csv files are imported to server. From collected data, software installed in the server will summary, analyze, and view on dashboard, report, alarm list, and event list. The reports are shown on large screen, PC, tablet and smartphone. Some operator-oriented reports are viewed on HMI screen to help operator update his current productivity and production progress of his machine
