The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) provides information in a single clear figure about what percentage of the available time has been worked productively and with high quality – so far, so good.

However, how can you use this value as a speedometer for your entire company, not only to secure competitiveness and jobs, but also to reduce your personal stress level? You can find out about these topics in our free webinar.

You will experience a success story to touch and get your personal questions answered.

In addition, you will also see how the industry 4.0 platform “Clouver” uncovers further available production potentials and how you will significantly increase your productivity with an analysis of the reasons for downtime.

ProCom at EMO trade fair (September 16-21, 2019, Hanover, Germany) in Hall 9, Booth F32 in the Industry 4.0 area

Aachen, Germany, July 23, 2019 – The CNC300PRO is ProCom’s most powerful controller of the CNC300 product family for maximum speed and precise laser cutting. The new, ultra-modern IPC can be scaled as needed in terms of memory and processor performance, offering the best possible configuration for any application. The associated CNC software “ergoCNC” was also improved. This software supports flying cuts, among other things, for which the laser is switched with microsecond response time during movements. The fast cut mode and ping-pong positioning also offer significant time savings thanks to optimized tool paths. To achieve the highest cutting quality, the distance to the workpiece is dynamically adapted by adjusting the height in real time. Other technological features, such as tool radius correction or 5-stage puncturing strategies, offer precise results. Due to its ergonomically designed touch interface and task-oriented screens, ergoCNC can also be conveniently operated by machine operators without extensive prior experience.

The ergoCAM software is the perfect addition for optimizing cutting programs to achieve higher cutting quality, more throughput, or better material utilization. The CNC300PRO controller is also ready for the Clouver Industry 4.0 application from ProCom. This solution links production and business operations and provides management, factory managers, and machine operators with information that can assist in uncovering hidden costs or minimize downtime.

Many reasons for a downtime remain undetected, because machine operators quickly fix them without recording it.  In whatever fact the problem resides, if you know it, you can improve it. Herefore, Clouver now provides statistics for production managers! With the new Clouver widget „Interruption Statistic Widget”, the overall equipment effectiveness will increase and thus the result will be better.

 

Our brand new Clouver widget „stacked bar chart“ delivers a comfortable overview of machine conditions over an extended period of time.

Track your machines’ long term performance and increase productivity.

Last week: Launch of Clouver at ‘s Chinese customers such as Lilanz, Esquel, world’s largest woven shirt maker, and Yude, producing for Anta, one of the world´s largest sports article manufacturers. We encountered great interest in our solution and a very valuable exchange of ideas. The first operational steps of Clouver went very well! Clouver – ´s .0 solution for cutting industries – is now available in Chinese language.

Bullmer, as leading supplier of automatic cutting solutions, now integrates Clouver in its product range. With Clouver, ProCom’s Inudstry4.0 solution, you get a comprehensive insight into real-time production flows and ensure a maximum degree of machine availability. Come and find out about it on Texprocess, 14 – 17 May 2019 in Frankfurt am Main (Hall 4 Booth B60).

Do you often deal with questions as “Why was the production standing still? Why was material missing? Why did the machine only work at 60% output? Why did the scrap increase and why did it come to an adjustment of the machines parameterization?”

In order to get the right answers to these important questions you need appropriate information that will provide necessary hints to understand the cause of your loss of productivity.

Using Clouver will help you there. With the OEE value, Clouver provides you with an indicator, and thus with the ability to detect and resolve productivity losses from downtime or short term interruptions, from production output or scrap. Find the right approaches to sustainably increase the production efficiency.

But what exactly is the story behind the term OEE? OEE stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness.

Determined from availability, performance, and quality, this value indicates what percentage of the time the machine has been productive and how much of its productivity has been lost due to interruptions, downtime, or rejects. In the automotive industry the regulation automotive standard IATF 16949 since September 2018 prescribes, that maintenance and service goals must inter alia be documented with the OEE standard.
