HMUSA 2022 Conference: Using Machine Learning to Understand Production – From Tools to Finished Parts

About the presentation
Modern data science techniques are used across many industries, but the manufacturing industry has been slow in adopting advanced analytics to optimize and accelerate operations. There are a lot of reasons for this lack of adoption, for example, a shortage of data science and analytics talent and an attitude: if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. However, forward-thinking manufacturers are starting to embrace the power of big data and analytics to improve their operations and create a nimbler work environment. Several companies have stepped into the analytics gap, offering software and hardware solutions that provide more data and actionable insights into everything from toolpath optimization to overall production intelligence in real time. With the amount of information production by CNC machines and advanced toolpath optimization solutions, there’s a big opportunity to use machine learning and advanced analytics to develop deeper insights that span from tooling to the machine, and all the way to overall factory performance. In this session, Greg McHale, CTO and co-founder of Datanomix, and Rob Caron, founder and CEO of Caron Engineering, discuss the types of data that are available from these manufacturing optimization solutions and the possibilities for driving deep insights into overall factory performance using advanced data science and machine learning.

Powered by AMT and managed by GIE Media, The IMTS 2022 Conference features 69 different sessions you won’t want to miss so register today. Focused on a range of topics that include process innovation, plant operations, quality/inspection, and automation, The IMTS 2022 Conference addresses improving productivity; improving part quality; and developing a stable, competent workforce to lower the cost of manufacturing in the United States and create new levels of market demand.

Meet your presenter
Greg McHale founded Datanomix on the premise that the 4th industrial revolution would require turnkey products that integrate seamlessly with how manufacturers work today. He brings enterprise data skills to a market ripe for innovation. McHale held engineering leadership positions at several venture-backed companies and is a graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

In 1986, after working in the CNC machining industry for many years, President Rob Caron, (P.E.), identified a gap in the market when it came to CNC tool monitoring and machine control.  He decided to start his own company in the basement of his Wells, Maine-based home to pursue the development of these conceptual technologies. Today, Caron Engineering has a new 12,000ft2 facility with more than 35 employees and a dynamic product line of smart manufacturing solutions that are unmatched in the industry.

About the companies
Founded in 2016 in New Hampshire, Datanomix offers automated production intelligence for precision manufacturers. When we started Datanomix, we met with dozens of manufacturers who were trying to use data from their equipment to optimize operations. Not one company was getting what they wanted out of their existing monitoring systems ? information was either too complicated and cumbersome, or too simple and not insightful. The user interfaces on those systems made it look like those companies didn’t understand manufacturers. Based on their input, we built a system designed with a few key principles:
? The system would require no human input for the data to be useful
? The information provided by the system would be actionable right now
? The system should be a “member” of your team, capable of providing answers and insights in the way you think about your business

At Caron Engineering, our mission is to transcend the industry standard by developing advanced sensor and monitoring technology to optimize performance, productivity, and profitability. As an employee-owned entity (ESOP), we work together to bring the best possible service and quality to our customers. It’s our goal to provide leading smart manufacturing solutions to reduce cycle times, promote unattended operation, drive down tooling costs, and minimize expensive damage to machines and work-holding. Our people are in the business of developing adaptive solutions for the future of manufacturing through strong leadership, foresight, and diligence. At Caron Engineering, innovation is what drives us.
