RTMS has developed a machine monitoring system based upon its wireless sensor technology. Using robust and reliable wireless gateways and a wide range of sensors, data can be gathered for live reporting on all the equipment in your plant and brought together on a simple management screen to give total visibility from inside or outside of the office.
Graphical charts are used to show the speed of the machines and to highlight the uptime and downtime throughout the shift. The finished products can be counted and displayed on screen in the production office and on the shop floor via a screen on the wall to give both management and operators visibility of what has been produced and where problems have occurred.
Stop reasons can be programmed into the system to allow operators to enter why the machine has stopped and can be expanded to alert an onsite engineer that they are required to assist with a breakdown.
Live dashboard screens show the real-time status of all machines across the factory, or multiple factories enabling managers to focus on the machines with low performance rather than completing time-sapping circuits of the shop floor looking for the problem.
Production data analysis can show shift and operator details, production counts against targets and performance and downtime percentages. Downtime analysis will identify when and for how long the machines were stopped and also what the reason was.
Links to third party systems can also be configured allowing job planning data to be imported and production and downtime information to be exported back again enabling a fully integrated system to be installed and for data to flow seamlessly from system to system.
