About the Project
Metal Stampers are often faced with the realization that their presses are largely mechanically driven so it’s very difficult to extract information from their equipment. That makes it very difficult to understand uptime, downtime, scrap, and overall OEE of their equipment. Traditional OEE systems require major infrastructure changes to networks, servers, and communication media. IRIS has developed and deployed many systems that utilize point of use sensors, controls, and data-basing to collect, analyze and display key metrics pertaining to OEE. We present this information at the press, overhead, and in the front office enabling owners and managers to better understand their true cost of manufacturing and where opportunities for improvements may be hiding.
