HOFFMAN ESTATES, Illinois–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 20, 2022–
Downtime is the enemy of manufacturing profitability. That’s why FANUC, a leading provider of global automation solutions, has introduced new Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) software designed to prevent manufacturing problems before they happen. AI servo monitor uses artificial intelligence to predict possible failures of the drive systems for FANUC servomotors and spindle motors.

AI Servo Monitor, in combination with: MT-LINK i analyzes the day-to-day performance of machines equipped with FANUC CNCs through machine learning. Daily data is displayed in intuitive graphs that allow users to easily monitor deviations on these machines. Artificial intelligence automatically creates a basic model of the machine while it is running in a normal state. A developed “anomaly score” expresses a difference in the baseline model and the daily recorded values. On a web interface, users can easily see the anomaly scores in a graph. In addition, email notifications can be sent if this value exceeds the predefined thresholds.
“The power of IIOT software is that it detects a failure before it happens, not after,” said Jon Heddleson, General Manager Factory Automation for FANUC America. “Predictive maintenance is essential to avoid unexpected downtime. FANUC’s AI Servo Monitor helps keep production running smoothly.”
MT-Link i is FANUC’s machine health monitoring and data collection software that connects equipment on the shop floor, including machine tools, robots and PLCs. MT-Link i monitors, collects and presents data in color-coded graphical representations of the factory floor to provide more information about production processes and historical data. Non-FANUC CNCs, PLCs and various sensors can be connected via MTConnect or OPC-UA protocol.
Information presented via MT-Link i enables data-driven business decisions to optimize operations through enhanced maintenance capabilities, such as scheduling memory backups, presenting alarm/operator history, and monitoring the status of memory backup batteries, cooling fans, motor temperatures, etc.
