What was the challenge M.A. Ford was looking to solve by integrating CADDIS?
M.A. Ford did not have any machine monitoring software so we were left with approximating cycle times, efficiency, machine downtime, and the ability to monitor live data for what machines were currently running at any given time.
How did CADDIS Systems help M.A. Ford overcome the challenges you were facing?
With CADDIS, we are able to easily capture important information about each machine, and even entire departments to review data pertaining to production that helps us make better decisions moving forward. Before CADDIS, many man-hours were wasted manually tracking approximate machine uptime and downtime.
What machines have you installed the CADDIS on?
M.A. Ford has CADDIS devices installed on several different platforms of 5 axis CNC grinding machines, OD grinders, lathes, and others. These brands include ANCA, Rollomatic, Walter, Shigiya, Saacke, and DMG Mori.
