Abstract

Currently, CNC machine tools in manufacturing system are no longer effective in Multi-source data acquisition, real-time interaction and remote monitoring due to the poor ability of compatibility, cross-platform performance, and remote service. An information model and index system for multilayer operation situation considering the information’s multi-source characteristics of CNC machine tools in the intelligent manufacturing environment are built in this paper, and a new approach to realize the multi-source data intelligent acquisition and monitoring based upon Multi-Agent is proposed. Especially, it focuses on the key technologies of intelligent multi-source data acquisition and visualized dynamic monitoring based on OPC and multi-agent. Finally, these analyses are illustrated in a real CNC machine tool VMC1060L and the result shows that it’s an effective approach which has a better performance in practical application.
