Aarbakke used DataOps provided by Cognite, including Cognite Data Fusion, to break down the walls between separate systems that tracked machine operation data and work orders, helping the manufacturing company analyze and optimize cutting tool usage.
The solution will help Aarbakke reduce tool assemblies by 60% and increase cutting tool efficiency by 10%.
60% reduction in tool assemblies
10% increase in cutting tool efficiency
22,000+ unique cutting tools overviewed
Aarbakke already had in place separate systems that tracked machine operation data and work orders -- the systems just didn’t communicate with each other. Cognite and Aarbakke therefore liberated the data from the systems and collected it all in Cognite Data Fusion (CDF), and then visualized it in a dashboard.
The dashboard gives production managers, team leaders, and operators an overview of which tools are most frequently in use and color-codes the usage based on the material that the tool is cutting into. Aarbakke can use this information to optimize tool usage during cutting and reduce cutting time.
By analyzing historical use of tool assemblies and their performance, Aarbakke aims to reduce tool assemblies by up to 60% and boost the efficiency of the remaining tools by 10%.
