You’ve heard about MTConnect, but haven’t done enough investigating to determine whether you want to implement it in your shop. Now’s your opportunity to delve deep into the realm of MTConnect with the easy, convenient webinar format.

Mazak USA’s upcoming webinar titled “MTConnect: Practical Applications and Uses” on Tuesday, June 17 at 2 p.m. ET, is geared toward manufacturers looking for ways to better calculate their overall equipment efficiency, monitor their machine tools from one system and reduce their production losses.

Neil Desrosiers, Mazak applications engineer/developer, will host the free 30-minute webinar that will explore how MTConnect, an open-source, royalty-free manufacturing protocol, easily connects devices and systems from different suppliers to capture and share information in a common format. 

Not only will webinar participants learn the basics of MTConnect and how it exists to set the standard communication method for retrieving data from manufacturing equipment, but also how Mazak actively supports MTConnect as a way to provide complete manufacturing solutions. The company now builds MTConnect-compliant machines as well as offers moderately priced adapters for existing equipment in the field.
