What’s New in Zontec’s Synergy Multi-Function Toolbox?

Chief upgrade includes Keyence interface module

Published: Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 14:55

(Zontec: Cincinnati) -- Zontec, the international developer of statistical process control (SPC) software solutions, has released an update to its Synergy 2000 Multi-Function Toolbox for the worldwide market. The Multi-Function Toolbox is an easy-to-use utility program that automates data transfer in both Zontec’s Synergy 1000 and Synergy 2000 programs.

The chief upgrade included in v. 3.0 is the Keyence interface module. This module allows for automatic creation of a data bank and associated data tables based upon measurement programs configured in the image dimension measurement system Keyence IM. Additionally, the module streamlines automated transfer of data with accompanying information through an output .csv file that is configured in the Keyence software and allows scheduling continuous data transfer at defined time intervals.

“The time savings we realize will allow more measurements per shift [or] day, better visual review of product, and eliminate manual data entry errors once implemented,” says Brian Kropp, quality control manager at Fastco Industries. “When implemented it will drastically decrease manual input for variable data recording.”

As always, the Multi-Function Toolbox automatically collects the data in real time and enables companies to seamlessly transfer legacy data from other applications or databases; integrate data from manufacturing applications for enterprise resource planning, laboratory management systems, supervisory control, and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, as well as serve as a communication bridge between open platform connectivity (OPC) servers and the Synergy 2000 OPC client.

“The transparency and convenience of data automation for the market continues to be critical,” says Zontec president, Warren Ha. “A guiding principle in our ongoing development and flexible design is to ensure our clients’ unique needs are met with an adaptable solution.”

Other new features included in this release allow for improved and more versatile file formatting, handling, and organizing as well as wireless gauging interface enhancements that allow remote collection of data.

Synergy 2000 Multi-Function Toolbox v. 3.0 is available now for a one-time cost. Click here for more information.
