Zünd announces the release of Zünd Connect — a monitoring tool to help users recognize potential and increase productivity. The program is said to compile production data from integrated Zünd cutting systems into key performance indicators, such as cutter capacity, availability, and overall equipment effectiveness.
According to the company, the user can see at a glance when and, more importantly, why machine interruptions occur, how much time is spent in setup, and what the availability of each machine is.
The web-based monitoring tool gives the user access to cutter-performance data at a glance. Key performance indicators are also available at all times to help users maximize productivity. The system records productivity levels over a freely definable period using Zünd Cut Center – ZCC (Version 3.4 or later) as data source.
Zünd Connect is available in a “monitor” or an “analyzer” version. As the name suggests, “monitor” consists of a graphical display of overall equipment effectiveness and is available to all ZCC users for free. “Analyzer” provides the necessary tools for the user to be able to evaluate the production process and recommend improvements.
