As of June 1, all new DMG/Mori Seiki machines equipped with MAPPS control come installed with an MTConnect Standard V1.1 compliant MTConnect adapter. With these pre-installed adapters, DMG/Mori Seiki customers will have a plug-and-play solution that allows easy, real-time monitoring of its machines. This remote monitoring capability is enabled with MTConnect—a standard, open Web protocol that allows interconnectivity between manufacturing equipment, peripherals and software.

For small job shops to large manufacturing corporations, the insight into detailed shopfloor activities that allows one to find ways to improve productivity goes a long way.

The MTConnect Standard V1.1 compliant adapter on MAPPS control provides with basic remote monitoring capabilities that includes information like current machine operating status, overrides, alarm conditions and work count with exact time stamp in real-time.
