Intelligent GNT.NET/MES solutions for machining applications

Productivity increases made easy: The intelligent software and hardware modules from GNT Systems ensure that controlled, transparent, and efficient manufacturing processes become second nature! Innovative tools for status overview, monitoring, visualization, analysis, and reporting give you an instant overview of the current plan/actual status of your machines and equipment – allowing you take immediate corrective actions as needed.

More cost-effective as a package

MES One gives you a high performance package for recording data for your equipment, planning, and detailed planning of your production, and for analyzing important key performance indicators. MES One is the cost-effective package solution for all production planners and manufacturers.

End-to-end productivity increases with one MES system

GNT Systems manages application-specific GNT.NET-MES projects for machining shop floors – starting with intelligent software modules for machine data recording (MDR), shopfloor control (SFC) and order visualization (VISIO), and including matching hardware components, such as MultiTrans, MobiTrans and Industrie-PC. This involves connecting all CNC machines directly with the existing PPS/ERP system. Moreover, a single IT platform can be used to cover essentially all parts of the production process in need of improvement.
In detail, this looks as follows:
The MDR module monitors the equipment and determines production specific key performance indicators (KPIs). Production KPIs are guaranteed to be accurately determined with the SFC module. The VISIO module provides a forward and backward look at the scheduling chart for all current manufacturing orders. And our hardware components act as reliable interfaces between the software and the machine.

Better control with ongoing real-time KPI measurements.

Better transparency due to instant access to information

Better reliability with optimized on-time delivery and equipment utilization

Better productivity due to effective detailed planning and capacity utilization
