Hermle takes the next step with HIMS Information Monitoring Software

After the introduction of the Hermle „Automation Control System“ (HACS), Hermle presents the new “Information Monitoring Software" (HIMS). This new option enables more comfortable monitoring and control of Hermle machining centers.

HIMS can be installed on PC or on mobile devices

HIMS can be installed on PC or on mobile devicesImagine it’s a Wednesday night. You’re sitting at the glass control station in your production hall sipping a cup of coffee and eating a sandwich, enjoying the emptiness of the hall and taking in the ballet of perfectly functioning, fully automated production unfurling before your eyes. Every now and again you pause to check the screen of your PC, laptop or tablet, and then resume your other duties in your own good time. Not a chance? Oh yes there is! With HIMS.

Unmanned, automated production at night and on a weekend is already a reality. Parts requiring the use of minimal tools and associated with minimal tool wear can already be produced without staff needing to be present at all times. With the new software HIMS from Hermle you can rest even more assured that your machines really are doing what they should be. And should they ever not, you will be informed surely and reliably to allow you to take appropriate steps as soon as possible. How HIMS works: The machines report errors and events to the HIMS server, which forwards the information on to a PC in the office or an SMTP server.

E-mails are then sent from there to the intended recipients of the information, who can take action if and as necessary.

This guarantees longer machine running times,higher utilisation, greater yields and a rational,modern production concept. And, of course, restful Saturdays, Sundays and night shifts for your operators.
