MTConnect MTConnect, an open-source, royalty-free manufacturing protocol, easily connects devices and systems from different suppliers to capture and share information in a common format, such as XML.

When serving as a complete communications standard, this "plug-and-play" networking platform assists factories in calculating overall equipment efficiency, monitoring all equipment from one system, reducing production losses and identifying lean manufacturing strategies.

We actively support MTConnect as a way to provide complete manufacturing solutions, which includes having more than 200 of our machines prepped to accept the MTConnect adapter before they leave the factory as well as offering moderately priced MTConnect adapters for existing Mazak equipment in the field.

Furthermore, we use MTConnect in our North American Manufacturing Plant in a variety of ways, including monitoring the utilization of individual machines and entire manufacturing cells, error handling and cycle time validation.
