Whenever Hyla Soft visits a machine shop, we can usually count on seeing at least one of these things:
There are too many risks: running an outdated program, placing a program on the wrong machine, or failing an audit, to name a few. Since CNC machining manufacturers typically work with expensive equipment and materials, these risks are unacceptable. The company’s CAM engineers often know that this situation isn’t right, but aren’t sure how to best address the issues.
The answer to these problems, encountered in most machine shops, is a fully CNC machining environment, involving Direct Numerical Control (DNC) and Machine Data Acquisition (MDA).
The purpose of a DNC system is to provide a central repository for manufacturing and NC data, and to make this data available to the shop floor. Features of a complete DNC solution include:
The purpose of MDA is to collect information from equipment to assist manufacturers in identifying and addressing causes of equipment problems. Features of a complete MDA solution include:
Hyla Soft is an expert systems integrator of complete, end-to-end DNC systems. Our areas of expertise include CAM workflows and requirements, PLM integration, and CNC machine connectivity. We have connected dozens of CNC machine makes and models to state of the start DNC systems.
