With proper setup CNC machines can run unattended with excellent production. If realized, this key CNC advantage can result in significantly higher profitability metrics for manufacturers. Below we have supplied a checklist for running effectively, unattended:
We’d all probably agree that it would be great to walk away from work at the end of the day with complete confidence that, in the morning, our work would have continued on without us, free of errors. As manufacturers across industries look to achieve overnight, unmanned production runs without broken and defective parts, Techna-Tool is able to help in a few key areas. While several components are necessary to achieve a functioning lights-out system (such as specialized machines, robotic loading, and fire suppression systems, just to name a few), we offer a solution for both broken tool detection and a monitoring/alert system. Our Techna-Check PM-1 production monitoring system offers a great way to improve the consistency of your lights-out machining.
