Seiki Systems products have been used in most sectors of manufacturing including Aerospace, Formula 1, Medical, Automotive, Subcontractors and SMEs for planning and scheduling to shop floor MES. They have been using the DeviceMaster product due to its ease of use and reliability.
Seiki Systems Productivity Suite includes ERP, finite capacity scheduling and Networked Manufacturing System (NMS) which in turn is made up of a series of modules including DNC, machine monitoring, shop floor data collection and performance analysis.
The systems are suitable for all types of manufacturing resources and machine tool CNC controls.
Over the years more than 10,000 CNC machine tools have been connected to Seiki Systems software.
All products are modular to enable planned and progressive growth in line with customer requirements.
Seiki Systems uses DeviceMaster-RTS products to feed the DNC data from an NMS terminal to multiple CNC machines via RS-232.
The DeviceMaster-RTS is connected to the LAN enabling the NMS terminal to sit away from the factory floor, reducing the risk of damage, and can be easily positioned centrally to serve up to 8 CNC machines, greatly reducing the cabling required.
Some CNC machines can report machine status information and this is converted to RS-485 and returned to the NMS terminal via the DeviceMaster RTS.
DeviceMaster-RTS is an easy product to set up and the ability to daisy-chain a number of units together is very useful
