On May 10th, the Nikkan Kogyo Shinbun newspaper announced ΣGunshi m, a Windows compatible 32 axis simultaneous PC controller, and ΣGunshi i, a information acquiring device that automatically collects logging information from various kinds of sensor information. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the quick responses and enquiries. For those who would like to have a catalog please inquire to enquiry address. ΣGunshi is a device that plays the role of a commander in a factory. ΣGunshi m is a high speed 32 axis simultaneous controller with hyper loop function, acceleration and deceleration control and hole machining shortest route function, it is a controller for mass production of automobile and medical parts developed by SAPOIN from Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Even during experimental demonstrations, it can reduce machining time to up to 40%, and that multiple machine tools can be controlled can be controlled simultaneously by each axis with no time lag by only one ΣGunshi m. Meanwhile, ΣGunshi i is a dedicated device that collects all information from manufacturing machines in factories such as molding machines, press machines, casting machines etc. for smart factories production log and production monitoring. In existing system, one PLC is required for one machine, and a higher level PC is required for information collecting, but one ΣGunshi i can collect information up to 1008 points in a factory. Data editing, saving, deleting and abnormality warning functions are available. The operation rate of the production line, the defect prediction from production logs, and warnings that can be confirmed on site and these combined with the integration of Production M-Karte and Mold/Product M-Karte, a smart factory can be realized.
