The X7 has various analysis functions for recording of run-, set-up- and downtimes, machine speed, productivity distribution and main production faults. Different counters and storage functions, to store all relevant monitoring, production and process failure data are available for different tools and orders. An extensive tool memory, a detailed stop protocol of all process malfunctions and the input protocol of all operator actions are available together with an RFID controlled user administration.
The X7 with 15“ touch display with fast image refresh and high-resolution incl. multicolored, integrated LED warning lamp is used for machine and tool protection, process monitoring and process failure detection and for optimizing process and part quality. Several counter functions (order, tool, dosage, quality, maintenance and shift counters) allow detailed control and analysis of the production process. The process signals can be monitored and displayed as peak values, envelope curves, trend or process quality curves. Popup messages can be displayed on the screen for operator information and warning messages.
The devices are user friendly (automatic calculation of signal amplification, monitoring window and envelope width for new products) and use a teach-in function to automatically adapt to changing production conditions (Optimizer Plus).
Appropriate sensors (e.g. force, ultra emission, structure borne sound, distance, temperature, binary) are placed at machine or tool relevant locations. They convert process information into electrical signals, which are amplified and filtered and then evaluated with adapted monitoring methods (Quattromatic, Systomatic, Zoom, Sums, Differences, short- or long-term Trend, Peak and PQ Monitoring).
To identify reasons for productivity losses, the Stop & Go diagram records up to 90 days of run-, set-up- and downtime as well as the real production speed. Terminal masks can be displayed on the X7 system to enter and display current orders, follow-up orders, target and actual quantities and stop reasons for connecting to FactoryNet®4.0 software.
