Finepart machine monitoring
FANUC [MT-LINKi] enables machine monitoring of up to 20 Finepart machines
MT-LINKi allows you to review the operational results on machine level and machine group level. You can review the production results and compare them against the production plan. You also can check machine utilization and find machines that are under-utilized. This enables you to optimize the factory’s resource planning.
Identify alarm causes quickly, identify and cut off recurrent alarm causes
Reduce downtime by reacting quickly to abnormal states
Check machine utilization and machine productivity, detect unused production capacity
Identify deviations from the production plan easily
To include high-pressure pump monitoring a specific module can be easily added.

Automated backdoor for robot access
For automation the Finecut machine is preferably served by robot assistance from the back side. This gives the operator perfect overview of the process and simple access to service consumables and wear machine parts. A robust motorized curtain opens and closed within a second giving access to the machine work area.
The FANUC controller communicates with the robot for:
Loading part material on to the cutting table
Unloading of finished parts
With the robot placed at the back, operator safety is easily obtained by fences without limiting access to the machine’s service areas.
