ENGEL e-factory 2 Now Available

With ENGEL e-factory 2, ENGEL sets new standards in production data acquisition. Thanks to the enhanced set of features, the new release of ENGEL's MES solution can be connected directly to ERP systems such as SAP – even injection molding machines of different brands can now be integrated. This results in higher productivity and efficiency in the injection molding production.

Manufacturing Execution Systems – MES for short – make operations more transparent. Production figures can be observed conveniently -- in real time -- from the desk in order to immediately counteract deviations.

At present, the ENGEL e-factory 2 includes the following modules:

  • e-factory Monitor – provides overview information of the current status such as production progress, causes of downtime and machine alarms. The display clearly shows the machine layout on the plant floor and the associated production information for the specific machine. The system warns automatically of any deviations from the defined limits.
  • e-factory Mobile – provides essential status information, focused and optimized for mobile devices. This information is readily available at any location over the Internet.
  • e-factory Data – the central management of the parts data records, provides a fast and secure machine set-up. The data records are transferred online to the machines and the applied settings can be fully controlled, thus ensuring continuous quality. All machine settings can be displayed both online and offline, and all changes are documented.
  • e-factory Chart – consistently documents all process data for comprehensive statistical evaluation. At the same time, it helps the plastic manufacturers meet the documentation requirements to their customers.
  • e-factory Reports – automatically generates both daily and long-term statistics regarding shifts and orders, letting management make informed decisions whenever necessary.

ENGEL continues to enhance its MES solution, and additional functionality is currently under development. Additional modules – such as the detailed order planning and maintenance management of machines and molds – will soon complement the newly released ENGEL e-factory 2.
