Sandvik Coromant has introduced CoroPlus MachiningInsights.

Billed as more than a monitoring system, the solution gathers data, calls attention to issues and provides actionable insights. Sandvik says it provides an easily attainable step for manufacturers are looking to reduce waste in production and transition into a digital way of working.

CoroPlus MachiningInsights was developed in recognition that a machine that stands idle is not making money. 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 ways to address 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 visualize machine and tool utilization levels and create improvements within the factory.

Sandvik says manufacturers will be able to make efficiency gains from CoroPlus MachiningInsights through the ability to analyze equipment utilization and act to optimize production processes. The analysis itself is facilitated by digital connectivity, and by adding the capability of operator input into the system, Sandvik Coromant says it has ensured there are also opportunities for increased collaboration and greater efficiency by combining data from the operator with data from the machine.

Visulaization is carried out online, preserving transparency and enabling web browser access. This avoids the need for a complex IT implementation to get up and running, and also ensures a simple way to incorporate digital manufacturing intelligence into production.
