OTO MES allows to collect and store important quantities of data and information regarding the production process, which can then be processed and submitted to the user. It offers a comprehensive solution that perfectly combines with all production lines and with the management system (ERP).
Immediate 6 axis control for cutting : Positioning for a perfect cut
Fives has developed a technological updated unit to immediately cut tubes and profiles. It allows to better profit from the production unit while cutting the mechanical strain and stress to the bare minimum.
Failure… but where? OTO View, a supervision and troubleshooting software for industrial units
OTO View is an innovating software matching the unit supervision with guided troubleshooting functions. With simple operations and ad hoc suggestions, it allows to accurate troubleshoot any failure and provide for the online consulting of any electrical wiring and operating instructions, thus consistently cutting downtimes.
The value of accuracy: OD SCAN, the line measure units for external sizes, contact-less.
Diameter measuring units fitted with laser technology on tube production lines are a technologically qualifying tool increasing efficiency and quality in the production with immediate and positive returns in terms of competitiveness. Fives has developed OD SCAN, an innovative system based on rotary sampling technology to measure tubes up to 12 inch diameter.
