Thermwood Corp., a manufacturer of CNC routers, announced an enhancement to its mobile app.
The free app is intended to allow Thermwood machine users to track the operation of their CNC routers using their cell phone, PC or other mobile device. The new automatic alert addition allows the user to instruct the machine to automatically email or text them when certain events occur, according to the company.
To accomplish this, the user simply enters their email address or phone number, chooses the machine(s) to monitor and select the events for which they want to automatically receive alerts. The alerts are easily customizable and adjustable, making it simple to set up and receive more or less information automatically.
The app also allows users to monitor many aspects of their Thermwood smart-router(s) and QCore Super Controls, including programs running, events, cycle times, scheduled maintenance and much more from just about anywhere. This app permits the user to obtain the following information on a smart-phone, tablet or PC:
?• A listing of every machine they own (includes an optional user customizable nickname)
??• The current state (ready, running or in e-stop)
??• The current Feed Override setting
??• The current program loaded and or running
??• A listing of all current and past part programs loaded/ran in chronological order with extensions
??• A listing of machine events during each part program in chronological order
??• A listing of the cycle time of every part program ran in chronological order
??• A listing of completion or interrupt times in each part program ran in chronological order
??• All machine events in chronological order with filtering
?• Monitor scheduled maintenance with a cycle time countdown as well as a graphical countdown progress bar
?• A time stamp listing of all previous maintenance performed
?• The ability to request a service phone call from a Thermwood support
?• Technician right from your device.
??• The ability to download the data from any of your Thermwood CNC routers in either Excel (XLS) or XML format.
