Ask any shop owner what their CNC machine utilization is, and chances are they’ll significantly overestimate the number. That isn’t because operators are overly optimistic. It’s simply because it has been too cumbersome to actually measure utilization data and monitor it for needed adjustments over time.

Modern CNC technologies now afford shop owners and operators an easy way to better understand their production operations by allowing them to monitor the status of machines operations, predict maintenance needs, make smart decisions that positively impact productivity and ROI levels.

During this presentation, you'll learn:

  • IIoT implementation strategies
  • The transformation to prescriptive maintenance systems
  • Machine monitoring capabilities with Okuma Connect Plan
