Has anyone integrated a Fidia control with other brands of NCs and equipment? With or without MTConnect, just trying to figure out level of effort, complexity, and price point for including these machines in a medium-sized facility looking for shop floor monitoring, MES integration, etc. Looking for US support, experience, or contacts at the company who can quote on a project. Any guidance would be appreciated.

I'm not familiar with Fidia. Looking at their website, it looks like it is a PC or Linux based control...? If so, if they have an API or would be open to sharing how to access items such as in Run Mode, Spindle Override, Feedrates, etc., then a software adapter could be written for MTConnect. But information is limited on the their site, probably would have to get a hold of one of their developers.

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply. Their US presence is fairly limited from what I can tell, with the developers and decision makers apparently all in Italy. Right now it looks like these are going to be the most challenging part of a pretty big but otherwise fairly straightforward MTConnect implementation. I'll post more as I learn more.
