CNC Connectivity Easier Than Ever with New StateMonitor

October 16, 2017

HEIDENHAIN’s New StateMonitor software for TNCs allows control connectivity with PC systems enabling users to view data remotely. Available in English.

SCHAUMBURG, IL (October 2017) – HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION announces the availability of the new StateMonitor for CNC manufacturing personnel who are implementing connected systems as part of the Industry 4.0 initiative. This new state-of-the-art software is an option with HEIDENHAIN TNCs and connects with PC systems to allow the user to view data and evaluate control processes remotely and in real-time.

Designed to highlight data usage and timesaving workflow methods, as well as provide transparent processes, the HEIDENHAIN StateMonitor user will know the current status of his machine always and everywhere. The user can configure this per project requirements, use it as needed, and evaluate it very easily and quickly to work more efficiently and productively.

StateMonitor captures, visualizes and evaluates the status of connected machines and displays it on any networked terminals. It could be a TNC control in production, for example, at which the statuses of several machines are displayed centrally. Or a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone, so that the TNC user can also leave his machine, e.g., to get new tools from the warehouse or the tool preparation area. PCs, too, can be included in the company network. Then the TNC user can create new NC programs in the quiet office instead of in the loud workshop without losing sight of his machines. In meetings, the user can present up-to-date information about ongoing processes. StateMonitor visualizes the statuses of the connected machines in clear-cut charts and graphs.

StateMonitor is part of HEIDENHAIN’s Connected Machining functional package. Here HEIDENHAIN combines solutions for the completely individual networking of production. This includes the HEIDENHAIN DNC interface, the Remote Desktop Manager and the enhanced display function Extended Workspace as well as other applications with which the TNC user can receive and use digital job data in the workshop. These solutions place the user at the center of digital order management through the control of their milling or turning machine.
