With Cycle Time Assist, you can quickly detect cycle time deviations at the machine in order to take countermeasures at an early stage. Production managers can see how the cycle times of their machines are doing and keep productivity high. Cycle Time Assist records the part cycle based on data from the PLC and displayed on the machine's user interface.
In addition to the part cycle, Cycle Time Assist can also start a detailed machine recording at adjustable times. All machine activities are recorded - from the movement of individual devices to communication times with other IT systems. Thus, for example, the top 10 view of cycle time eaters can be used to quickly identify those devices that are the cause of a deviating cycle time. In this way, worn or incorrectly functioning devices in a machine can be quickly identified and productivity can be kept high.
The recorded detailed data can be automatically exported to XML or JSON files, which allows easy integration into e.g. cloud-based big-data applications.
The app is completely web-based and can be displayed on the browser of any device connected to a ctrlX CORE controller. The app is also set up purely via the web interface and can therefore be accessed from any device. We attached great importance to a simple setup, so that the Cycle Time Assist is ready for use in a short time.
