Smarter Shop Floor with Cloud-Based CNC Monitoring
Tech Manufacturing, a long-time manufacturer of machined metal parts for aerospace clients such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Bombardier, needed to raise production capacity and reduce lead times for their clients’ largest and most urgent orders.
GAINING REAL-TIME INSIGHT FROM PEOPLE AND EQUIPMENT
With their 5-axis CNC machines already running 24 hours a day up to 7 days a week, Tech Manufacturing, looked towards smarter operation and real-time performance data to increase the productivity and useful life of their existing machines.
“We needed a better understanding of how our machines were actually performing for us in real-time. Live and historical machine performance data would also help us identify technical or process issues that were detrimental to productivity,” said Halley.
