Wittmann Battenfeld in cooperation with T.I.G.

Wittmann Battenfeld in cooperation… Wittmann Battenfeld concluded a cooperation contract with T.I.G. (Technische Informationssysteme GmbH) based in Rankweil, Austria regarding the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) software authentig by T.I.G., to bring networking and more transparency into injection molding plants.

SmartMonitoring is a process data acquisition software which provides access to a universal database. With SmartMonitoring, Wittmann Battenfeld uses the monitoring module of authentig with an integrated online overview of the corporate machinery visualized on the UNILOG B6P machine control system. Through this simple integration into the system of the MES software market leader, Wittmann Battenfeld offers its customers the option of a plant overview via the machine's control system, too.

The authentig software is an innovative MES developed by T.I.G. It offers a unique range of functions. With up to 10 program modules, many things are possible, from a simple overview, analyses and production planning right up to maintenance and process optimization. The software's most outstanding features are its modern user interface and the simplicity of its implementation and operation. With the use of latest technology, enormous volumes of data can be handled without any problems.

SmartMonitoring opens up the powerful plant and production data acquisition system for all types of machines in series production, and thus helps with the optimization of production processes by removing weak points in production. Through reducing scrap and downtimes as well as cutting energy costs with measures made possible by visualization, SmartMonitoring has a long-term positive effect on the user's bottom line. The optional mobile module also offers an online overview of the production via a Smartphone, tablet or Internet browser. Important key figures are shown, such as productivity, cycle time, reject rate or degree of utilization. SmartMonitoring is a low-cost, entry-level variant of an MES system, which can be retrofitted with additional functions at any time.
