Low-cost production monitoring for molders.
Sure-Track automatically detects and displays cycle time, number of cycles run, interruptions, downtime, idle time, and job efficiency per shift, day, week, or other measure--all without any user input. Users may, however, enter data on standard cycle time, job ID, part and job descriptions, number of cavities, scrap counts, scrap or downtime reasons, and number of parts in the job. That allows the system to report number of parts produced (even from family molds) and time and cycles left to run. Data can be displayed on the central PC screen of the F.A.C.S. system and on remote PCs. Remote annunciator screens (standard LCDs) show job efficiency, alarm messages, and color-coded machine status. F.A.C.S. is said to be cost-effective for at least eight to 10 stations.
