Advantages of a Machine Data Acquisition Software
Transparent Production Processes Through Real-time Data

We ensure a stable and efficient connection of the most common machine types. This is the basis for recording your production data and achieving transparency in injection molding production. Machine data acquisition software makes your key production figures available in real-time at the push of a button. In addition, optimization potentials are visible.

An Investment That Pays Off

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

Support For Your Employees

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

Seamless Quality Recording

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

Simplified Production Planning

Centralized, digital machine data collection enables better capacity planning and increases overall machine efficiency. Lead times are minimized and your on-time delivery is increased. In addition, set-up times and therefore costs can be reduced.

Faster, Less Expensive and Environmentally Friendly Without Paper

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

Do You Want to Digitalize Your Production?

Our experts are happy to answer your questions about the machine data acquisition software and MES.
