Ace Mi­cro­matic Group is a large ma­chine tool con­glom­er­ate in In­dia with mar­ket pres­ence in sev­eral other coun­tries across Asia, Aus­tralia, Mid­dle East, North and South Amer­ica and Europe. The com­pany which pro­vides its cus­tomers a one-stop shop for all machining needs spe­cial­izes in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of CNC con­trolled turn­ing, milling and grind­ing machines along with sub­sys­tems like tool tur­rets, ATC etc.

Build­ing on its ex­per­tise in ma­chine tool man­u­fac­tur­ing, the group has fur­ther di­ver­si­fied into man­u­fac­tur­ing of com­po­nents for var­i­ous in­dus­try seg­ments. In ad­di­tion, the group also of­fers prod­ucts to en­hance its cus­tomer’s pro­duc­tiv­ity through real time ma­chine mon­i­tor­ing.

Ace Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­tel­li­gence Tech­nol­ogy (AMIT), the Ace Mi­cro­matic Group’s soft­ware com­pany, has been bring­ing the power of au­to­mated IT so­lu­tions and IoT to man­u­fac­tur­ing. Their prod­ucts syn­er­gise the Group’s deep man­u­fac­tur­ing do­main knowl­edge and IT ex­per­tise.

Prod­ucts like TPM-Trak, MachineCon­nect and oth­ers are cur­rently in use at sev­eral cor­po­rates, Tier-1s and SMEs. Th­ese prod­ucts em­power in­dus­tries to im­prove their OEE and prof­its sig­nif­i­cantly, and also help au­to­mate key busi­ness pro­cesses by col­lect­ing, analysing and us­ing re­al­time man­u­fac­tur­ing data. MachineCon­nect, in par­tic­u­lar, helps in driv­ing bet­ter pro­duc­tion, ma­chine up­time, and, there­fore, prof­its. It as­sists in ac­quir­ing rich, ac­cu­rate pro­duc­tion data with­out any op­er­a­tor in­volve­ment, over LAN, di­rectly from the ma­chine con­trol. One can ac­cess ma­chine data from one’s net­work or di­rectly from one’s mo­bile. The re­sult is faster, pre­cise ma­chine main­te­nance, us­ing in­built break­down, pre­ven­tive and pre­dic­tive main­te­nance work­flows. All data ac­qui­si­tion from machines is 100% Plug and Play. No ad­di­tional hard­ware or op­er­a­tor in­volve­ment is re­quired at the ma­chine.

Key Fea­tures

The key fea­tures of MachineCon­nect in­clude: Au­to­mated cap­ture of ma­chine stop­pages, to re­duce op­er­a­tional losses; Ac­tion­able pro­duc­tion an­a­lyt­ics, to drive op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency; Ex­tremely in­tu­itive, easy to use in­ter­face; Au­to­mated col­lec­tion of ac­cu­rate, rich pro­duc­tion data and ma­chine pa­ram­e­ters; Faster, pre­cise ma­chine main­te­nance, us­ing in­built break­down, pre­ven­tive and pre­dic­tive main­te­nance work­flows; Soft­ware ‘Black-box’ for ma­chine pa­ram­e­ters (feed, speed, power, RPM…) and op­er­a­tion his­tory, for analysing ma­chine per­for­mance, or ac­ci­dents; Re­motely com­pare and trans­fer CNC pro­grammes – en­sure er­ror-free pro­duc­tion; Power Cal­cu­la­tor – check the lim­its of avail­able ma­chine power to pro­duce parts based on user in­puts; and on­line ma­chine man­u­als for easy ac­cess to main­te­nance per­son­nel.

MachineCon­nect was al­ready ac­tive on ACE de­sign­ers turn­ing cen­tres. Re­cently the com­pany launched the same on AMS Machining cen­tres and Mi­cro­matic Grind­ing Tech­nolo­gies-Grind­ing Machines.
