C.R. Onsrud has launched its version of Osync Machine Analytics software, Osync 3.3, which allows for all compatible shop machinery and auxiliary equipment like dust collection or automation systems to be accessed 24/7 by any desktop, tablet or mobile device. Users can learn which machines are running, their cycle times, part counts, productivity levels and more, the company explains.
“This connectivity between your machinery, Osync enabled devices, and your personnel is one of the many ways Osync helps owners and managers get a better look into their shop’s operations, no matter where you are,” says Jeff Onsrud, director of sales and business development at C.R. Onsrud.
For example, users can get a text or email from a CNC machine center if production isn’t meeting a specified goal; if the load time between parts or sheets is longer than scheduled, or receive a warning about an out-of-balance tool or machine crash.
“A distinguishing feature of Osync is that it provides meaningful information for real-time decision making,” says Onsrud.
He says that while conventional machine monitoring software may show real-time data, or even record program information, they typically require end-users to manually retrieve and analyze the reports for process changes. In contrast, Osync serves information when needed, where needed, in context, without having to remember to check it.
“This prevents delays due to lack of awareness when things are not running properly or efficiently.”
C.R. Onsrud manufactures CNC machinery as well as machine monitoring, diagnostic and business intelligence software.
