EC Data – Workpiece tracking of operating, process and quality data in complex machines and manufacturing systems
EC Data provides traceability for every single workpiece. This includes storing of all information about machining results as well as the documentation of operating and process data for the machines. Each workpiece is assigned a unique name for identification. EC Data controls the naming and data management, even across multiple manufacturing systems. The result is a history for each workpiece that includes all relevant technical production information.
Production results remain available even years later, ensuring seamless quality control and documentation. For example, workpiece identification allows parts that were removed from the manufacturing process for external quality control to be introduced back into the manufacturing process. Since the full machining history is available, the workpiece will be automatically transported to its next production step for completion.
