Get to know your production with MONITOR Machine Integration

MONITOR Machine Integration (MI) is the first step towards Industry 4.0. With automatic reporting and transfer of data from machines to ERP system, you get a more effective production, and better post calculations. We asked two of our customers what they think about MONITOR MI.

Falks Metall is a machining company that was founded in 1946. They produce parts, mainly for the automotive industry and off-shore. The company has a turnover of approximately 10 million euro.

– We have a highly automated production with around 35 robots and 30 CNC lathes, says Per Falk, CEO of Falks Metall AB.

At Falks Metall data is gathered and analyzed in MONITOR Machine Integration and MI Reports. One of the goals is to identify where to make improvements in the factory.

– We need constant improvement. And an important part of that is to measure and analyze where we can be better. In some machines we have OEE values of up to 97 percent. This wouldn't be possible without using MONITOR Machine Integration, Per Falk says.

– We recommend MONITOR Machine Integration if you want to take that next step towards industry 4.0 standard. It's also a very good starting point if you want to have a good overview over your production and really start to know your processes, says John Lejon, Business Developer at Hordagruppen AB.

The MI system has helped Hordagruppen to improve the quality in their daily meetings. With automatic transfer of data from MI to MONITOR ERP, post calculations become much more reliable and useful.

– It's perfect to have as a material to base decisions on, to do improvements in your manufacturing units. Earlier we used another machine integration system and switched to Monitor's Machine Integration to get better data produced.
