FactoryWiz Monitoring is a powerful, modern CNC machine tool and non-CNC asset monitoring and data collection system. FactoryWiz Monitoring is a complete on-premise intranet solution which provides software to drive all large screen dashboards, automatically e-mail historical reports with real-time status of manufacturing assets and process.
FactoryWiz Monitoring is not a subscription-based system. You can run FW from a cloud service such as AWS, Azure, etc. It resides on-site where you have complete control of your data. Live and historical data can be viewed from anywhere in the world on ANY web-enabled device: PC’s, tablets, and smartphones.
The majority of CNC Controls for the past 10 years have been fitted with CAT5 Ethernet and built-in data collection protocols which have never been utilized. The robust native protocols combined with MTConnect provide live productivity status and process changes such as Machine Status, Alarm Number/Message, Current Program Number/Program Name, Progress bar with % of Current Program completed, Feed, Speed and Spindle Load Override Dials, Active Tool, Duration of Current Status, Job and Batch Number along with Idle Reasons easily input by the operator using large buttons on a touch-screen display.
Legacy CNC and non-CNC equipment can also be connected and monitored using off-the-shelf hardware such as Advantech ADAM (Data Acquisition Module) PLCs and MOXA-style Ethernet-to-RS232 components. When combined with the included State-of-the-Art FactoryWiz DNC software, the combination of ADAM and MOXA hardware can provide nearly the same monitoring information as a modern Ethernet equipped CNC control

- With up to 256 concurrent machine connections allowed, all machines can operate simultaneously. Run programs larger than will fit in your supported CNC’s memory via drip feed. Even drip feed multiple machines at the same time. Upload from any machine while downloading to others. No manual switch box means no limits!
- Users will appreciate the easy to navigate interface, perfect for tablets or kiosks, while IT managers will appreciate improvements designed to eliminate certain security vulnerabilities and help control machine and file access. FactoryWiz clears the way to significantly reduced operator training time with an original architecture designed around ease of use.
