Endutec monitors the automated nighttime production of lunar vehicle parts using the StateMonitor machine data acquisition software (MDA)

How many parts manufacturers can claim that their workpieces will fly to the moon? Endutec, a twelve-man operation based near Lake Chiemsee in Germany, decided to reach for the stars: they milled 30 parts that were initially said to be unmillable. These components are now an integral part of the "Mission to the Moon," the first German lunar mission.

Voices from the workshop

"We can't put our data in the cloud, which is why we need monitoring software that works independently of the cloud. That way we retain control of our data."

Štefan Čabra
Director at Schelling, Slovakia

"We use StateMonitor to transfer evaluations of machine jobs into our ERP system. The large number of parts involved in tool making makes it immensely important to evaluate individual job times and door-to-door times."

Johannes Herzog
Team leader milling mold making at Toolcraft, Germany

"StateMonitor has made my job much easier while also giving me more possibilities. I can always check the situation in real time, without having to be anywhere near the machine."

Federico Vidali
User and CAD/CAM programmer at RS Meccanica, Italy

10 minutes of undetected machine downtime per shift with five machines in three-shift operation over 264 days at an hourly rate of 80 euros cost 52,800 euros a year.

You get an additional 3168 hours out of your spindle if the productive machine time is increased by 15 % when operating five machines in two shifts.

It takes just 3 minutes to connect your facility to StateMonitor over HEIDENHAIN DNC if your machine can be addressed over the network.

HEIDENHAIN DNC, OPC UA, MTConnect, or Modbus TCP: Your equipment can be connected to StateMonitor over four different interfaces.
