Proximity Sensor installed in the knee of the machine to register every shot and its cycle time
To achieve set targets in cost analysis and cost control the injection moulding machine is equipped with two sensors:
The M-Box’s smart-card readers identify the operator and which mould is on the machine.
Digital electricity meter to register power consumption
Depending on the issue, relevant officers (management/supervisor, maintenance, QC) will receive an instant notification on which they will have to act and feedback to the system after solving.
When used in combination with M-Box Staff Tracking employees that are off-duty or off-premise can select not to be disturbed by notifications. Alternative supervisors (that are checked in) will then be notified.
When a moulding machine has a production interruption, the operator indicates the problem via pre-set buttons on the M-Box:
The supervisor may be required to confirm the true cause of the interruption via a pull down menu (or manual input) on his or her mobile device.
When a moulding machine is idle but consumes electricity, a notification is sent. Most of the time the operator forgot to switch off the machine or the material heater.
M-box staff tracking keeps track of who is on the premises and keeps records of working hours. People that are off-duty can select not to be disturbed by notifications.
Electricity Consumption Monitors enable complete and detailed monitoring of electricity consumption throughout your entire operation.
Auxiliary Equipment Monitor Boxes keep track and issue alerts on status and / or consumption of all auxiliary equipment.
Complete production efficiency transparency is achieved and data is available for analysis of:
For every completed production run the system automatically calculates the true cost price based on power consumption, material cost, operator cost and allocated overhead cost (as predetermined in the settings).
M-Box can be used on any brand of injection moulding or casting equipment. During ordering we will request details of the moulding machine to make sure the correct type of electricity consumption meter is selected.
