Aim of our activity is the development of solutions that allow connection, control and supervision of machines, sensors, control constituents and facilities over standard networks.
1990 - 1993 Development and patent application of a universal machine operating interface for and together with MERCEDES BENZ AG (ProTerm).
1993 - 1994 Successful market launch of ProTerm as operating terminals in large clinical complexes in Germany.
1994 - 1995 Development and patent application of a communication protocol for the noise free control of LCD screens in motor vehicles (based on optical signals).
1994 - 1996 Development and implementation of automation solutions for Siemens Germany and Austria (BMW, MAN)
1995 - 1996 Market launch of the first terminal less network connection for machine controls based on Microsoft Windows
1996 - 1999 Development of a nonproprietary software - technology for the connection and control of programmable logic controls (PLC) to standard networks
1996 - 1999 Development of a software - technology for the supervision of sensors and control of plants over wide area network connections.
1999 - 2000 National and European patent application for CNCnet DNC and CNCnetPDM
2000 - 2002 Development and market launch of CNCnet NCDV, a technology for the inter-premises processing of part databases over internet connections.
2002 - 2003 Expansion of CNCnet NCDV to CNCnet CONNECT. The CMS application allows import of manufacturer specific file formats.
2004 - 2005 National patent issuing for CNCnet DNC and CNCnetPDM. Further development of CNCnetPDM to allow universal recording, documentation and evaluation of environment relevant data in the municipal area.
2006 – 2007 Market launch of CNCnetPDM for environmental monitoring over wide area networks (WAN). Measurement and analytics about environmental pollution.
2008 Further enhancements for the industrial usage of CNCnetPDM added. Alongside to a standardized shop floor connector for more then 150 types of machine controls CNCnetPDM gets an XML interface for SAP. European Patent finally issued for CNCnet DNC and CNCnetPDM.
2009 Development and market launch of CNCnet FMS. The File-Management-Service automatically manages data stored on plant floor devices based on the release status of operations (ERP).
PRODUCTS AND SERVICESACTIVITY FIELDS We develop solutions that allow network connection of devices that are “not compatible to EDP” and their supervision and control by enterprise systems for ERP. The spectrum reaches from simple electrical signaling transmitters (switch ...) and actors (relays ...) up to CNC controls and PLC’s of all well-known manufacturers.
RANGE OF PRODUCTS
CNCnet FMS The CNCnet File-Management-Service automatically manages data stored on plant floor devices based on the release status of operations in ERP applications. NC-files, tool-preset-data, drawings, tooling- and setup files are moved to the data storage of machine controls on release of an operation. Files that are modified or newly created at the machine control are associated with the correct operation by analyzing the content. On revocation of an operations release CNCnet FMS moves the associated files from the machine control.
BUSINESS BENEFITS: CNCnet FMS seamlessly synchronizes your plant floor devices with ERP, work scheduling and CAD/CAM. All data associated with an operation is unambiguous and up to date. Duplicate programming, “data tombs” and long setup times are omitted. Administration and plant floor work like a single machining center.
CNCnetPDM Supervises technical equipment over network connections without special hardware components. CNCnetPDM packs the information of technical equipment (the devices activity) into “EDP understandable” data packets and transfers it to ERP for processing. CNCnetPDM is also able to create and transfer instructions back to the equipment and translate them understandably for the specific control.
BUSINESS BENEFITS: You save the most expensive part of a conventional automation solution and remain independent since CNCnetPDM works independently of special technology bus systems (Sinec, MAP, EIB ....). Because CNCnetPDM is entirely satisfied with the existing electronics of the device it works stable.
CNCnet DNC Data transmission from and to Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines over freely eligible network connections. Because CNCnet DNC works independent from specific hardware products it can practically be used with every network connector module available on the market.
BUSINESS BENEFITS: Because CNCnet DNC is not bound to special hardware, there are almost unlimited possibilities to connect machines to EDP. The advantage that CNCnet DNC is not a closed solution makes it easy to integrate the application into existing programming systems, databases or ERP applications.
SERVICE Pre- and after sales service for our products and solutions is carried out directly from our office. A comprehensive hotline service in addition with teleservice over wide area networks (WAN) is also offered.
CUSTOMERS Beside international organizations and large-scale enterprises our customers can be found in almost all areas of manufacturing industry with main emphasis in the US, Germany and Switzerland.
