Predator Bar Code Readers (BCR's) are designed to work both with older NC and CNC controls with limited displays and keyboards, or to further reduce the time taken to control Predator DNC™
Instead of editing and punching out a Remote Request™ program operators can simply swipe a bar code and set the machine to read. This can be applied for all the functionality found inside Predator DNC™ such as uploading, downloading and printing of CNC data.
Typical Remote Request™ methods require editing a program or command line in order to control the DNC software. This can be very time-consuming if you are using long filenames, especially if errors are made and the Remote Request™ must be re-written. If program filenames can be added onto your shop floor documentation then the process is made not only easier but safer as well. The use of bar codes can greatly reduce the chance of calling the wrong program.
If your job sheets, travelers, or CNC set-up sheets already contain some unique bar code information, then it may also be possible to configure a Predator DNC™ and BCR solution just for you.
Predator BCR's can also be used for data collection purposes, in order to track machine tool events or to record data that cannot be collected automatically. This is a much prefered method of manual data collection because it eliminates the need for PC hardware on the shop floor and paper-based data collection systems.
