SAMnet™ provides the ability to distribute Job, Press, Tool,
Signature and SPC information to any computer on the plant-wide network. In addition to
Signature Technologies real-time display of information on the Host PC, SAMnet now
provides current press operation at the bosss office as well. Any computer connected
to the SAMview Host PC, via the plant network can request to see current job status.
With the push of a button, Signature data can also be presented live on the monitor. Most
recent faulting signatures can be played back or printed for timely report presentations.
SAMnet provides the ability to present timely information where it
is needed. This may be a Signature from a damaged tool presented to the Tool and Die shop
or the current production rate for a particular press line in the Plant Managers office.
Currently SAMnet will refresh signatures at the rate of once every 2
seconds. This is adjustable, depending on host and client computer performance as well as
the number of presses connected to the host and the speed of the presses. Networking
performance in no way compromises performance of individual signatureACE® units.
