M-POWERED ANALYTICS IS BUILT ON TWO FOUNDATIONS
CLOUD CONNECTIVITY All Milacron machinery ships M-Powered ready. Your machines are connected to the M-Powered Cloud, an online portal for your machine and our analytic tools to give you the latest and most timely information on performance, processing status and output. The M-Powered Cloud gives you access to key intelligence in real-time from anywhere with your smartphone, tablet or computer. SECURITY M-Powered provides a secure connection for remote monitoring and access to equipment. Utilizing M-Powered hardware technology, your business is protected by the combined built-in security of a Virtual Private Network (VPN), firewall and other trusted protocols. M-Powered software isolates and silos each machine and your network for ultimate protection.
M-Powered Analytics remote monitoring services opens up new ways to view machines and boost productivity. A suite of web browser and smartphone applications provides real time machine data and advanced analytics to maximize your machine’s output. The applications are available separately and can be bundled together for maximum value. Monitoring a machine over the Cloud could not be easier. With remote monitoring you stay connected to your production floor, wherever and whenever you like. Monitor machine and production data to make the right decisions. DOWNTIME TRACKING M-Powered boosts productivity. Downtime tracking allows you to view all machine stops, analyze their specific causes, establish their frequency, correct the problem and measure the efficiency of your intervention. Data is provided in an easy-to-use format, allowing you to employ lean and quality improvement principles like 8D, six sigma, fishbone and other tools. OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE) M-Powered calculates overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and the underlying losses. M-Powered gives you important insight on how to systematically improve your manufacturing process. The M-Powered remote monitoring analytics platform identifies the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive and gives insight on root causes. SMARTMOLD Take advantage of the industry’s next major advancement in molding technology. SmartMold is a powerful tool that maximizes production potential and improves operational efficiency through digital data collection, powerful analytics and control metrics – all connected directly to the mold and hot runner.
