SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

The MLS integrates logistics and information flow within your manufacturing process. Beginning with a layout design that maximizes shop floor utilization, and including ERP and tool management, the CNC program management system accommodates everything from single machines to factory-wide systems with multiple machine tools and all manufacturing resources.

  • Fully configurable

    A wide variety of FMS modules provide the most profitable approach to manufacturing. You can also select different types of pallet setup areas for various products.

  • Material logistics

    MLS also makes it possible to integrate your material logistics flow and billets within the FMS for automatic just-in-time delivery.

  • Multiple machine tool types

    Unique to the FMS market, MLS does not limit your machine tool selection to one or two types of machine tools and pallet sizes. This gives you the ability to easily change or expand production using the same FMS.

  • Fastest pallet transfers

    MLS is the highest pallet transfers-per-hour FMS in the market. That gives you headroom for future extensions or workpiece changes, and the ability to use it as a base for high volume production.

  • Extendability

    More than 80% of MLS are extended or modified after initial startup. So you have the freedom to handle any future manufacturing scenarios.

  • Lights out production

    With optimal quantities of pallets in storage, an assisting control system, and proven reliability, MLS makes it easy to reach and monitor your output targets.

MANUFACTURING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Fastems MMS is the industry’s most versatile FMS control. MMS is an open, machine tool independent system that does not require separate software for NC program, tool, material or workshop production order management. Plus, MMS provides complete manufacturing information transparency.
