Micronite 9.1 is suited for machining and grinding applications. The system changes principles of shopfloor control through paperless, automated data acquisition and use of the intelligent system for integrated control of production, quality and tooling. The control type delivers high-performance process control based on quality predictive and multi-variable tool predictive models; tool efficiency management involving automated tool life monitoring, tool wear and failure analysis, and adaptive control of tool life expectancy; and efficient operation management, which includes automatic logs of on/off data from CNC machines with detailed downtime reasons and expert system-based data analysis. The system provides proactive management information to prioritize and determine wastes and improvements.

Integrated acquisition of machining data allows quick and efficient data capture from virtually any type of CNC equipment and multiple inspection sources quickly and efficiently, the company says. Real-time data is automatically analyzed and presented in tailor-made formats. The software enables the operator to visualize and interact with information in different ways, from simple process offset decisions to complex problem solving and notification to a supervisor and management.

High-performance process control models are developed specifically for machining applications. They include small-batch and high-volume production, non-linear processes from low-rate to high-rate tool wear, multi-fixture and multi-spindle equipment, multi-functional tools and more. Intelligent operator support involves machining process decoding, analysis of statistical data and tool database management.
