What is HxGN SFx | Asset Management?

HxGN SFx | Asset Management provides an intuitively easy way to access key machine performance data

Factory asset management based on real-time data is an essential part of every smart manufacturing strategy. But successful asset management depends on having access to actionable insights in a format that is easy to access and use.

HxGN SFx | Asset Management delivers a simple, accurate way to monitor and analyse how key assets are performing via a centralised, user-friendly dashboard, whether assets are on a single site or in multiple factories around the world.

Leverage accurate data in pursuit of operational excellence
SFx Asset Management lets operators and managers keep a close check on machinery running unattended by providing real-time customisable notifications of the performance and status of metrology assets. 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. 

SFx Asset Management software provides vital information for optimising overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). 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.

Relevant, real-time data visualisation
A customisable dashboard enables different levels of access to data so that users can focus on the key information they need to perform their role effectively. 

Secure remote access
HxGN SFx | Asset Management is delivered securely over the cloud to a PC, tablet or a smartphone.

Event notifications
SFx Asset Management’s real-time notification system empowers companies with instant alerts to keep metrology systems up and running.

Ease-of-use
The dashboard design draws on the strengths of consumer applications to ensure data is always easy to find and use.

SFx Asset Management includes two components: a cloud application, and a client application called the SFx Connector, which is installed on each asset’s computer. The SFx Connector monitors KPIs from all available compatible sources, including metrology software, the controller and sensors. The data is then encrypted  and transmitted securely over the cloud, enabling designated users to access it remotely.
