What is ProManage Tip-Set Tracking Module?

The Tip-Set Tracking Module provides the opportunity to track and manage the tips or sets used by the machines that are being tracked by ProManage Manufacturing Operations Management system in machining factories. The module can wear the tip or set life spans off via associating them with records belonging to values such as parts and operations and offers the chance for operators to be informed through devices such as AndroidOSD or tablet. The main purpose of use of this module is targeted as making error-free manufacturing via the changing of this tip or set at times deemed necessary.

The "Tip" in the "Tip-Set Tracking Module" signifies cutters that carry out the cutting operation via connecting to a cater or gripper and that are disposed of after they are not re-sharpened when they become blind. The "Set," on the other hand, signifies cutters, such as drilling bits, end mills and drift punches, that carry out perforating or cutting and that can be used via re-sharpening after becoming blind.

Features of Tip-Set Tracking Module and the benefits of it

The Tip-Set Tracking Module allows making identifications of tips and sets used for manufacturing operations that include distinctive features, such as factory, type, group, life span and their likes. This way, the module introduces flexibility on the issue of identifying tips and sets owned by the factory, while also simplifying the tracking of tips and sets that are desired to be tracked via separating them. With the filtering tools that are added to all the menus, it ensures finding the tips and sets whose statuses will be monitored or with whom operations will be conducted. The sets that are matched with part and operation descriptions ensure wearing off, which means decreasing the set's life span that is identified automatically when part production or related operation takes place in the machines that are tracked by ProManage Manufacturing Operations Management system. When the costs and operational necessities of tips and sets are taken into account, the module removes the risk of occurrence of errors that may result in the loss of value and interruption in production, such as lacking or faulty recordings that may emerge if the records belonging to parts that are tracked and whose life span and statuses are automatically formed are tracked by the personnel.

Life spans of tips and sets that are matched with the operations carried out in the machines whose operation durations are tracked automatically by the system either with the analysis of the cycle signal or functioning signal are made to decrease in terms of time units in ProManage. Tips and sets are colored up automatically in line with their remaining life spans left in the Tip-Set List. While green signifies that the tip or set in question has life remaining, yellow shows that it's about to be over and red means that the life span is over. By this means, users are given visual warnings and are aided in taking the necessary actions.

The Tip-Set Tracking Module provides the opportunity to track and manage the tips or sets used by the machines that are being tracked by ProManage Manufacturing Operations Management system in machining factories.

The process owner, who will carry out the tip or set change via ensuring warning generation on KeyPDT and AndroidOSD screens for the tips and sets that have no life remaining, warns the operator.

The module provides the possibility for the users to identify the reasons for changing the tip during manufacturing from the "Reasons for Tip-Set Changes" list. Thus, factories can identify the reasons specific to their productions via detailing them in desired levels. The personnel carrying out the tip change operation can input the reason for changing the tip via selecting one of the defined reasons for change. Through this, tracking and recording of the situations occurring on the manufacturing area can be ensured in desired details.

The Tip-Set Tracking Module enables keeping the record of the operations that are conducted for tips and sets. With the help of this, factories can chronologically track changes and operations regarding tips and sets.
