If Unattended Machining is your goal, listen to how a cutting edge plant is running all night with no staff, and getting great results.
Implant Direct is a manufacturer of dental implant screws and other high end dental devices. They are most commonly working titanium, making small parts with tight tolerances. They knew the secret of their success would be efficiency in production, so they invested in monitors using vibration sensors.
They operate unattended most nights, and some weekends. Every morning their set-up team checks the machines to see what happened the night before and reports the results. They have been running 26 machines and it is not unusual to have 20 or more run all through the night.
Monitors alone don’t make that happen. Implant also has bar feeders, fire suppression systems, and a team with the confidence to run unattended. If you want to see it in action, click here.
You might think the webcam is so the engineers can watch the plant from home, but in fact, it is a marketing effort to show dentists why Implant Direct can make such a high quality product at a competitive price.
