Hello,

I've been following MTConnect for a few years, and at one point submitted a small website for a student challenge that stored the sample machine feed to a database and used some javascript to continually graph axes and spindle speed. That was quite awhile ago, though, and I'd like to find a more practical way to develop using MTConnect. My main interest has been to use it for predictive service; to use statistics/trending measurements to help shops anticipate major maintenance events and reduce costs. Are there any companies out there with a similar goal? I'd love to assist with development, but am limited by a lack of test machinery or company/university affiliation as I work outside of the manufacturing industry.

Cherish,

We're getting ready to open a machine shop extension this summer to our local New Tech Highschool in Plymouth, Indiana. ITAMCO is on the board and also funding the equipment. We are going to install brand new CNC machines and every machine will be MTConnect enabled for machine monitoring. This is significant in that this will be the first highschool with MTConnect and the students will be learning and utilizing MTConnect. We are also opening up the machine shop to the community for free, so novice to experienced machinists and programmers can come in and use the equipment. I will publish the connections to the MTConnect agents for the machines so others will be able to do testing remotely. I can give you more details later this summer.

Thanks

Cherish,

The School we are sponsoring is now open called IMESSC (ITAMCO Manufacturing Education School Service Center) . We have connected two machines with MTConnect. Below are the machines and their agent connections that we would like to make accessible to the MTConnect community. So you can pull these up in a web browser and see the MTConnect stream. You can also do monitoring if you would like to start developing software that uses MTConnect. These two machine connections are basic and would be a great start. We are also sponsoring an open house on Manufacturing Day, October 4th, that anyone can attend. Here is a link to the details http://www.mfgday.com/events/weidner-school-of-inquiry-phs

You can get the Ethernet MTConnect Adapter from TechSolve(techsolve.com) or you can use the RS232 open source adapter from the MTConnect Github repo(https://github.com/mtconnect/adapter/tree/master/haas)

Thanks
