Wintriss Controls Group will demonstrate new, advanced features of its SmartPac Pro press-automation controller and its ShopFloorConnect OEE and data-collection software. The new ProCamPac Pro programmable limit switch for the SmartPac Pro includes counter-driven outputs that operate only on specific press strokes to precisely control gagging operations; new asymmetrical toggle outputs for controlling complex configurable tooling; and additional timed outputs to optimize versatility. A new on-off counter cam output precisely controls functions that need to operate at a preset interval rather than on every machine cycle. Operating similarly, a new pulsed counter cam output is programmed with an “on angle” and a dwell time instead of an on-off output.
Also highlighted: ShopFloorConnect software that collects downtime and production-efficiency data from CNC machines and presses in all areas of discrete manufacturing. Data are displayed in real time, and manufacturing reports are produced, including detailed OEE reports in a variety of formats. Wintriss will showcase the new ShopFloorConnect PM Tracker that allows users to track important machine preventive-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 that enables users to quickly set up two-way data sharing with any ERP or MES software.
