Sandvik Coromant, part of the global industrial engineering group Sandvik, today launched its new product the 'CoroPlus MachiningInsights', targetted towards manufacturing workshops. The company says the solution will help them become more efficient and profitable by using digital solutions for monitoring of equipment utilisation.
According to the company the Indian customers will gain benefit from this new solution to increase effeciency which would further result in profitability. The product is more than a monitoring system, the solution gathers data, calls attention to issues and provides the insights required to take action. The company says the new tool will enable easily attainable step for manufacturers that are looking to reduce waste in production and make a smooth transition into a digital way of working.
For many manufacturers and workshops, knowing when a machine has stopped – and identifying the underlying reason for the stoppage – can be a major challenge and digital solutions are creating new possibilities to overcome this issue. Replacing the traditional ways of manual tracking, manual data aggregation and manual time studies, collecting data directly from a connected machine tool as well as from operators makes it possible to visualise the machine and even tool efficiency utilisation levels and create improvements within the factory.
Sunil Joshi , vice-president , Sandvik Coromant , South and East Asia said , “Indian manufacturers will be able to make substantial efficiency gains from this digital solution through the ability to analyse equipment utilisation and act to optimise production processes. The analysis itself is facilitated by digital connectivity and by adding the capability of operator input into the system,Sandvik Coromant has ensured that there are also opportunities for increased collaboration and greater efficiency by combining data from the operator with data from the machine.“
The CoroPlus MachiningInsights ensures transparency is ensured through the visualisation being carried out online and therefore, accessible by a web browser. This means there is no need for a complicated IT project to get up and running and there is a rapid and simple method of incorporating digital manufacturing intelligence into a production site to drive improvements.
The company says with this Sandvik Coromant yellow coats would be able to provide quality machine and tool data, with the ability to suggest improvements of increasing efficiency through its own solutions.
