Wintriss Controls Group has announced it will be demonstrating new, advanced features in its ShopFloorConnect® OEE and Data Collection Software and its SmartPAC PRO Press Automation Controller at IMTS Booth #135073 located in the East Building, Level 3, in McCormick Place, Chicago IL from Sept 12- 17, 2022. For a connection to a smarter factory, including when remote monitoring is required, the latest functionality in SmartPAC PRO and ShopFloorConnect gives metal formers and fabricators efficient and easy-to-use tools.
Advanced ShopFloorConnect® OEE and Data Collection Software collects downtime and production efficiency data from every machine, ranging from CNC machines to presses, fabricating machines and more, in all areas of discrete manufacturing. Data is displayed in real-time, and indispensable manufacturing reports are produced, including detailed OEE reports in a variety of formats. At IMTS, Wintriss will showcase the new ShopFloorConnect PM Tracker which enables users to track important machine preventative maintenance (PM) items by run-hours or machine cycles, issues targeted alerts when an item requires PM, and tracks the maintenance work history for all machines.
ShopFloorConnect 6.0 also features a new Universal Interactive Application Program Interface (API) that enables users to quickly set up two-way data sharing with any ERP or MES software.
Also to be highlighted at IMTS, Wintriss reports it has developed the world’s most advanced Programmable Limit Switch (PLS) — new ProCamPAC PRO, for its flagship SmartPAC PRO Press Automation Controller. This new PLS includes counter driven outputs that operate only on specified strokes to precisely control gagging operations, new asymmetrical toggle outputs for controlling complex configurable tooling, and additional timed outputs for even greater versatility.
Attendees can also see new Advanced DiProPAC available on the SmartPAC PRO Press Automation Controller, which boasts over ten new capabilities for even greater die protection for presses. Highlights include a new customizable green sensor type called Green Flex™ that combines all the elements of the other Green sensor types. This versatile cyclic sensor can monitor intermittent events such as gagging operations, and also has a function that allows for the precise monitoring of events that need to occur multiple times per press cycle.
In addition, Wintriss has expanded the static sensor monitoring capabilities in DiProPAC with auto-reset, programmable bypass angles, and minimum actuation time settings.
