Achieve maximum machine utilization

Manufacturers are experiencing end-of-life issues with DNC technologies.  They need to replace their old (in some cases 20+ years), often serial-based communication on Windows XP other unsupported systems. MEMEX is unique in that it offers a comprehensive DNC package that also tracks OEE, and therefore is poised to create a DNC renaissance.

MERLIN DNC is a new plug-in product for MERLIN that connects CNC machine tools for efficient transfer of CNC programs and other data. It has browser-based interfaces that work with the latest computers, tablets and smartphones.

With MERLIN DNC manufacturers can load, run (drip-feed) and save CNC programs with up to 1,000 machines simultaneously. MERLIN DNC works with machines equipped with Ethernet, RS- 232C and tape reader communication interfaces.

While it is a state-of-the-art DNC package in its own right, MERLIN DNC offers much more. As a plug-in software tool to MERLIN Tempus, factory-floor teams can MERLIN DNC to auto-load a specific job, or auto-send a specific part program, or gather data that suggests areas of improvement to a part program.
