   Application Story
WebAccess/CNC: Utilizing Machine Tool Networking Technology to Realize an Intelligent Factory

CNC machine tools are mainly used in metal processing. In Taiwan, metal processing manufacturers mostly receive small-volume, large-variety orders. For every batch order, relevant machine tool parameters must be reconfigured, which relies on manual adjustment and management. This can take from 1–2 days to even a week, which can occasionally lead to production downtime.

Adopting network-capable CNC machines can solve problems currently faced by metal processing manufacturers. Equipment networking allows engineers to remotely upload and download machining files via the network, thus enabling remote adjustment of CNC machines instead of having to take a portable storage device to the production site and manually copy the machining program to the machine.
