Fastems launches a new version of its automation software at EMO

Fastems, provider of factory automation systems, will introduce the latest release of its software for automated pallet handling for the metalworking industry during EMO, MMS Version 6.

Fastems’ Manufacturing Management Software (MMS) is one of the most progressive solutions for automatic production processing, complete with planning, controlling, visualization and monitoring capablities. Based on a manufacturer’s current order and all required or available resources, the software plans the production straight from an ERP system or PSS (Pallet Stacker System).

Not only does MMS administrate all NC programs needed for the production processes, but also all the tool data. It also monitors tool life and prompts the operator for new tooling if required. If an unforeseen situation should arise that was not included in the production plan — for example a particularly urgent order, MMS will, if prompted, automatically rearrange the schedule in real time, taking into account the changed production process priorities.

The new MMS Version 6 offers critical benefits to users – both on the shop floor and at the management level. The user interface is now based on HTML 5 technologies. As HTML 5 supports various hardware platforms and operating systems, the new interface creates the key prerequisites for the smooth transformation production processes as defined by Industry 4.0.

As a browser-based solution, it makes it possible to access current production information from anywhere in the world via secure Internet connections. Given this scenario, the use of smart phones and tablet PCs also enables users to plan and access the system no matter where they are located. Moreover, the solution makes it possible to monitor live production data on any electronic device with Internet access.

Fastems will be exhibiting in Hall 25, Stand B60.
