Machine data collection with ORBIS MES

Machine Data Collection ("MDE")

Fully integrated and transparent production

The ORBIS MES machine data collection allows the machines to receive data directly from SAP or to return it to SAP. The collected data and its preparation in user-friendly dashboards creates a complete visualization of the machine and system status of production and assembly as a basis for transparent and efficient manufacturing. Essential functionalities of ORBIS MES are based on the ORBIS Multi-Process Suite. It is the basis and networks all end devices. In order to keep up-to-date with the latest hardware, the solution is constantly expanded to include additional systems. The ORBIS MES can be used to connect machines, terminals, analog and digital sensors, scales, controls, Web IO, CNC machines, signal lights, RFID scanners or Bluetooth components.
