Functional modules of the system

Monitoring

Machine data collection

Make decisions based on reliable and up-to-date information. We collect and store data from connected equipment in generalized and detailed forms, as well as in the context of the tasks being performed.

Up to 2,000 machine parameters, including:

  • machine status (production, on, off)
  • emergency stop
  • machine condition monitoring
  • information about the processing program (status, name)
  • position of the speed correctors
  • actual value of spindle speed and feed
  • values of program counters and machine cycles
  • spindle load (not supported by all models)
  • PLC memory locations

Analytics

Visualization and analysis

Displays important information for staff in an understandable way.

19 journals, 39 reports, ∞ dashboards

The Analytics module visually displays structured monitoring data in graphical and tabular forms.

Analytical data is available both in the form of reports and in the form of dashboards for real-time tracking of critical indicators.

The module allows:

  • See how the machine is used
  • Identify losses and their causes
  • Optimize technological processes and set up continuous production
  • Register and respond to alarm events and CNC signals
  • Anticipate and prevent emergencies
  • Receive alerts about deviations from technology

Control Program Library

Control programs

DPA can be used to transfer and download NC programs to the machine. Control programs are stored in a single library, taking into account versioning and access rights.

On most CNC controls, the system can track the NC programs that are actually being executed on the machine. In this case, not only the name of the NC program is taken into account, but the system also controls the content (body) of the NC program, which was actually executed on the machine, even if the NC program was loaded in a different way, bypassing DPA, or taken from the archive on the machine.

The module allows:

  • Load and store control programs
  • Manage versions of control programs
  • Indicate production of which products and at which work centers the program can be used for
  • Upload the control program to the machine (while the system monitors the state of the machine and does not allow interrupting the running program)

Technology

Operational cards and reference data

The module makes it possible to take control of all operations performed on machine tools.

Describe the processes used in production in terms of routes / stages / operations and get all the necessary information to manage and control the technological aspects of production.

The module allows:

  • Set up and describe the flow charts used in production
  • Operator to receive part design and technological documentation at each stage of production
  • Help the operator to follow the technology exactly when completing the production task
  • Take into account the norms, deviations and losses, the percentage of scrap and other parameters in the context of technological operations

Rationing

Controlling the duration of operations

The system allows you to store temporary norms for performing production operations, form or adjust them according to the production history, and monitor compliance with the norms when performing tasks.

Maintenance

Accounting and control of maintenance and scheduled work

Monitoring the correct use of equipment, drawing up and monitoring the schedule of scheduled maintenance. Accounting for accidents and unscheduled repairs.

Operator Automated Workstation

Signals

Messages, signals, deviation handling

Generation of signals and notifications for specified conditions or deviations from the required values.

Transfer of notifications to personnel and control of specialists' reactions.

Upgrade

Connecting equipment without CNC

Equipment with Ethernet ports and support for OPC, OPC UA, Euromap, MTconnect protocols can be connected to a unified production data collection system. DPA can act as both a client and a server of these protocols.

Equipment with standard controllers OMRON, Siemens, Schneider, Beckhoff, etc. in the presence of a controller project.

Our partners produce additional equipment to link machines without CNC, when it is economically feasible.

Vibration diagnostics

External vibration diagnostics systems can be connected to the DPA system to monitor processing and equipment condition.

Data Integration

COMPATABILITY WITH NC machine TYPES

Advantages

Uniform environment for all productive groups

DPA is one of the most functional systems and all the necessary components for control CNC machines can be installed on the same equipment.

No additional equipment

Only the Ethernet network connection is required to connect the machine. The system is compatible with all popular CNC mashine types

Remote access from any device

The DPA interface is based on the HTML5 standard. No matter where you are, all you need to access the system is the browser and the Internet

Rapid Implementation

The modular system and the ready-made drivers are appropriate for almost any tool, and it allows integrating as soon as possible

Low Cost

Quick connect of tools and absence of additional equipment necessity minimize implementation costs

Flexibility and Universality

There are options for integrating virtually any tool, even though it does not have external connection interfaces
