Record, evaluate, and visualize machine data with the StateMonitor software
How can I increase my manufacturing productivity? Is investing in a new machine tool worthwhile? How can I maintain an overview when operating multiple machines? These questions arise frequently, and aren't always easy to answer. HEIDENHAIN offers StateMonitor in order to make your operational processes more transparent and optimize your workflows.
The software provides a real-time view of the machines' production status. You maintain an overview at all times and can react quickly in case of faults. Anyone who can avoid unnecessary interruptions and bottlenecks increases the productivity of his machines. The comprehensive notification and evaluation functions of StateMonitor are the basis for uncovering hidden potentials and increasing efficiency.
You can also access your operating data from a smartphone or tablet, so it does not matter whether you are in a meeting, working in your office, or even outside of your company network. So you always have an overview of your machinery's productivity.

StateMonitor and Connected Machining
You must first lay the foundation if you want to digitally connect your production processes. HEIDENHAIN supports you with its package of functions. The control connects all areas accompanying your production process with each other. Powerful features such as
ensure efficient data management in networked production. This makes digital job management possible, making your work simpler with ease of data usage, time savings, and transparent processes.
Night flight to the moon
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."
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."
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."

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.
