The Power of Truly Predictive Technologies

The Power of Truly Predictive Technologies

Unplanned downtime is costly. Schedule disruption, loss of production, missed deliveries, and overtime pay required to catch up on orders can kill productivity and profitability.

While machine monitoring solutions have the capacity to report on equipment status and preventative maintenance schedules, they have NOT been able to monitor machine health and alert you to issues before they happen… until now.

In this informative webinar, you’ll learn about MHmax: Makino’s cutting-edge predictive technology that helps you mitigate unplanned downtime. We’ll show you how it works, and we’ll reveal the specific components that MHmax assesses and monitors within these four major machine subsystems:
  • Spindle Health
  • Coolant system
  • Hydraulic system
  • Mechanical system

Utilizing a suite of sensors and an onboard computer that employs analytical software to run predictive analysis on each machine, MHmax analyzes data and identifies vulnerable points that could cause production disruption if they are not addressed. In addition to the predictive maintenance aspects of MHmax, it also provides a real-time portrait of a machine’s status, which can be enormously helpful in optimizing processes, improving equipment utilization and enabling more worry-free hours of unattended or lightly tended machining.

MHmax reports its findings using one of three levels of connectivity based on customer communication protocols:
  • Level 1:  Displays results on the machine only
  • Level 2: Connects one or more machines to customer network. MHmax can connect with designated recipients’ email or text alerts
  • Level 3: In addition to Level 2 connectivity, Level 3 offers alerts to be “pushed” to the Makino dispatch system in order to facilitate a proactive response from Makino Customer Service

Not only can it alert an operator that an error may occur in the future if they don’t attend to an issue, but depending on the connectivity level, all information is easily accessed in one simple dashboard. No more walking from machine to machine with a clipboard and pen to gather data.

MHmax is an important part of implementing industry 4.0 in the production machining segment and can be applied to specific Makino equipment across many industries including automotive, job shops, precision contract machining as well as medical. Its analytical insight allows shops to plan predictive maintenance for when it’s most convenient, instead of spontaneously reacting to unplanned downtime.

Join this webinar and learn how MHmax can use the power of predictive technology to reduce headache-causing production shutdowns--saving you frustration and lost profits.
