MONITOUCH and tablet usage is introduced to a press manufacturing line to achieve an operating environment with an unrestrained layout.
Due to the large size of press machines, movable parts could not be operated in direct view from the location where the is installed.
On machines where workers must observe moving parts directly, a MONITOUCH would need to be installed at each operating location, leading to cost issues.
By using the VNC function, the same functions (monitoring/operation) as existing V9 units can be used on a tablet. This enables large machines and long lines, to be operated while also monitoring.
Further cost reductions are possible by using models that support wireless LAN to eliminate the need for access points.
