Hexagon’s asset management solution helps optimise CMM performance

HxGN SFx | Asset Management delivers easy-to-understand views of real-time data from your equipment with intuitive navigation and a customisable alert system

18. Dezember 2019

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division today launched HxGN SFx | Asset Management, a cloud-ready software solution that helps manufacturers achieve operational excellence by offering easy access to real-time machine status and utilisation reporting. 

The software unlocks the data typically siloed in individual coordinate measuring machines (CMM) to provide real-time insight into the performance, use and status of multiple CMMs across one or several sites. A web- and mobile-enabled dashboard provides real time visibility of the health, availability and performance status of CMMs, in single or multiple locations. Manufacturers can shift from managing assets as a cost centre to optimising equipment profitability and value creation. And the data aggregated by SFx Asset Management can be used to pre-emptively schedule maintenance and identify sources of downtime.

With HxGN SFx | Asset Management it is also possible to quickly identify which site has spare capacity and gain insight into how systems are used. And because SFx Asset Management is cloud-based, information can be accessed anywhere from a PC, smartphone or tablet. 

Asset performance management software plays a crucial role in optimising Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). As its name suggests, OEE is a measure of how effective machines are. It can be calculated either for a single coordinate measuring machine (CMM) or for a set of CMMs, over various periods of time. An understanding of a CMM’s OEE can help reduce spending on maintenance while achieving better overall machine performance and efficiency.

“SFx Asset Management moves manufacturers towards the smart factory by giving them the real-time data that makes them more flexible, effective, responsive and competitive. Smart manufacturing is based on the most accurate and actionable information, and the first step is to reach a deeper knowledge of your machinery’s operational fitness,” says Scott Mahrle, SFx Asset Management Product Manager.

The Lite and PRO versions are now available online. They are currently compatible with PULSE, PC-DMIS and any Hexagon CMM that uses DC, RC, or H3C controllers and will support an expanding range of industrial equipment.
