Machine Data Acquisition by Means of Software

authentig Creates Transparency in Your Production

ENGEL is also your experienced and reliable partner in the field of Manufacturing Execution System (MES). With the modular authentig software, you can easily network your injection moulding machines. Based on the machine data acquisition, you receive article- and order-related results and KPIs. For example, rejects and machine downtimes can be reduced.

Advantages of Machine Data Acquisition by Means of Software
Transparent production processes through real-time data

We ensure a stable and powerful connection of the common machine types. This is the basis for recording your production data and achieving transparency in injection moulding production. With the machine data acquisition software, your key production figures are available in real time at the touch of a button. In addition, you will also be shown optimisation potential.

An investment that pays off

Customer calculations show that the acquisition costs for authentig pay for themselves in 5 to 12 months. The savings in the reduction of set-up time and scrap are particularly significant here.

Support for your employees

User-friendly dashboards on monitors in production and on mobile devices provide your injection moulding technicians with data and key figures quickly and easily. These include, for example, pieces per shift (performance level), cycle time deviation and plant availability. They are the basis for data-based decisions.

Seamless quality recording

Machine data acquisition with our software allows you to fully record and document process and part data to determine process capability (cmp) and machine capability (cmk). This enables you to identify negative developments such as weight fluctuations at an early stage, optimise processes and thus avoid scrap.

Simplified production planning

Centralised digital machine data collection, enables better capacity planning and increases overall plant effectiveness. Throughput times are minimised and your delivery reliability is increased. In addition, set-up times and thus costs can be reduced.

Faster, cheaper and environmentally friendly without the use of paper

With the help of the machine data collection software authentig, you can replace your manual data collection with digital reports. Excel tables or handwritten records will then be a thing of the past. Paperless production becomes reality.

An experienced project manager oversees the implementation of authentig. Even if you lack internal resources, nothing stands in the way of introducing machine data collection software.

Process Parameters | Module A: Recording
Picture shows workshop on authentic directly in the production environment

We explain which parameters you record in your injection moulding production and what you can use them for. We start with the automated recording of process parameters with authentig.

Process Parameters | Module B: Interpretation
