OnTakt

We built OnTakt because we didn’t feel there was a software available on the market to meet the needs of small and medium sized shops. OnTakt is a lightweight software that is easy to implement for the smallest of shops but robust enough to manage production and monitor machines of the largest shops, WITHOUT a complete digital transformation or your operations. OnTakt displays the minimum amount of actionable data needed to run your shop more efficiently and profitably.

PRODUCTION MONITORING FOR ANY SIZED SHOP

OnTakt enables machine shops of all sizes to easily connect machines in a single dashboard to capture data, visualize operations, and react on the shop floor to manage production in real time. Every shop should be able to implement new technologies that enable simple and intuitive management of shop floor activities. We built OnTakt so that a shop with 5 people can easily unlock productivity with access to real-time data, easy operations, and powerful results. OnTakt can grow with you so if you are a shop with 500 people OnTakt can be customized and integrated to your internal systems through our API.  OnTakt enables any shop to make decisions as issues arise, not after the fact.

  • OnTakt Production Management Machine Monitoring Wolfram

POWERFUL

  • Sends real-time notifications in Slack and Microsoft Teams

  • Predicts daily productivity based on cycle time and previous part counts

  • Generates production and tool usage reports

UNDERSTAND YOUR SHOP FLOOR QUICKLY AND MAKE DECISIONS PROACTIVELY, NOT IN RETROSPECT

Real-time machine monitoring enables you to quickly see what machines are behind schedule, which machines have excess capacity, and which machines can benefit from other process improvements like TMAC from Caron Engineering or robotic automation.

  • Easily integrate new machines for monitoring

  • Visualize all machine operations in a single dashboard

  • Track production performance in real time for each machine

  • Access historical data for retrospective production review

MANAGE PRODUCTION PROGRAMS

Organize and group programs so that contextual information like tools and production targets can be reused to minimize system set up time. OnTakt automatically loads production programs running on the control to associate tooling, runtime, and other metrics.

  • Program and subprogram names pull directly from the machine control with no action from a user

  • Tools are assigned to programs and are incremented each time a program is run for easy tool tracking

  • Grouped programs allow you to leverage existing tooling information across similar programs saving time setting up new processes

  • Compare actual program runtimes to estimates to visualize where production efficiency can be improved

  • Track quality issues back to individual programs to identify root causes

DON’T LET YOUR OPERATORS BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY UNEXPECTED TOOL CHANGES

Keep machines on every shift running smoothly with real time visualization of every tool in every machine. Our Tools module enables anyone in the shop to quickly visualize what tools need attention making it easier for shop supervisors and operators to prioritize their time

  • Shop supervisors and operators can quickly plan shifts with real time visualization of upcoming tool changes

  • Manufacturing engineers can monitor tool life to identify unexpected changes to production processes

  • Operators can view critical tool data like stick out length and offsets minimizing setup and data transfer errors

  • Programmers can gather historic and real time data tool-by-tool to set limits for individual machines and programs

  • The tool planning feature allows you to set a target runtime and it will notify operators which tools will need to be changed during the specified period

DON’T STOP PRODUCTION DUE TO MISSING TOOLING

All your inventory is right at your fingertips. Our inventory tracking module enables your operations team to keep production running smoothly. Eliminate the need to pause or stop production jobs due to missing consumable tooling or durable tooling that needs to be serviced.

  • View real time tool inventory and on-order status for all production tooling to eliminate surprises

  • Save time by managing tool lead time, supplier data, tool part numbers, and physical attributes for each tool in a single, easy to access location

  • Track attributes for both consumable tooling as well as durable tooling

  • Save time ordering tooling by creating new orders for tools and track open tool orders from the Inventory Module

  • Allow anyone to easily input and update inventory when tooling is received and manage the disposition location of individual tools

  • Manage multiple supply points and direct technicians to available tool storage locations in tool cribs, at machines, or other storage locations

ACCESS PAST DATA THROUGH REPORTS

Our Report Module allows users to access retrospective data to create custom reports. Build reports based off of selected time period to unlock productivity gains with existing equipment, identify areas ripe for automation, or disseminate production information to management.

  • Leverage past data to understand which machines have more capacity than expected reducing future capital expenditures on equipment

  • Systems integrated with Caron Engineering’s TMAC will provide real-time savings summaries based on actual events on each individual machine

  • Report data can be used to identify areas that can be automated to free up operators in high throughput operations

  • Easily gather data that can be exported to CSV or printed for reporting metrics to management or executives
