Digitalization for Machining Process

 
機械加工準備業務プロセスのデジタル化

There is a tendency for attention to be paid to automation and machine operation monitoring that utilize robots, IoT, and AI. On the other hand, is the digitalization of your machining business process progressing?

 

Compared with efforts to automate and monitor machine operation, it is not easy to digitalize a series of business processes of preparing machines for jobs (machining work), programming parts, and supplying production resources including tools.

This is because personnel with varying levels of knowledge across multiple departments are interdependent to perform jobs. Then, using the system managed by each department, the tendency to run individually and optimally is exacerbated. As the amount of data used in the machining business process increases, the distributed data hinders the smooth process of the series of machining business processes.

However, by accomplishing this difficult task, you can achieve significant impact and significant productivity gains.  From the perspective of overall optimization, what should be shared in a series of machining work processes is centrally managed. Then by linking the system used by each department in charge with centralized data, machining business process will be successfully proceed.

It is necessary to devise to manage tools for machining operations. Let's make use of WinTool software, which is specialized in this tool management area, to improve the productivity of machining business processes!

Digitalization for Manufacturing

There are several types of tool storage systems, such as tool dispenser system, vending system, and automatic storage system, and you can manage the storage of tools at the shelf level. 

 

The hardware cabinet and software are integrated so that you can open only the drawer in which the tools specified by the software are stored, or receive the tools specified by the software at the slot of the storage.

 

While it is possible to organize your tool storage in a hardware cabinet alone, the software helps reduce manual errors, increases security and increases productivity.

 

How about using tool storage system in a tool room or production line according to the operation flow of your tools?
