In just a few words: Machine data acquisition (MDA) constitutes the interface between the machines that produce the data and the digital processing of this data.

What is Machine Data Acquisition (MDA)?

Machine data acquisition (MDA) constitutes the interface between the machines that produce the data and the digital processing of this data.

There are two types of data: Process data – this is the information necessary for operating the machine and generated as a result of operating the machine (control data, but also information about operating times, power consumption, etc.). The second type of data is product data. This is acquired at the processing units of the machine, and provides information on the production process (e.g., number of pieces, weight, size, and temperature). The systematic use of machine data helps to improve performance and assure quality in manufacturing. Due to increasing digitalization in the manufacturing industry, machine data is deemed to be a key factor in improving a company’s competitiveness. One prerequisite of MDA is that the machines are connected as seamlessly as possible (connectivity).
