A production monitoring system is a process that is designed to record the overall performance of the production line in real time. The system collects data from the various sections of the production line and is relayed to employees and managers working on the line. The data that is collected by the monitoring system is used in improving the efficiency of the production line.
One of the best systems being used by a variety of industries today is the Techna Check PM-1. The system is designed and manufactured by Techna-Tool Inc., a leader in tool and process monitoring systems.
How Does It Work?
The Techna-Check PM-1 is directly installed onto the electrical cabinet of the production line. It utilizes Ethernet and custom production monitoring software to perform the data collection process. The system is usually connected to the various processes of the line like robotic systems and automated machinery.The system receives data signals regarding the processes – whether they are running smoothly or if they are encountering any problems.
