It’s official, CIMCO A/S has released Shop Floor Screens for CIMCO MDC-Max. This useful feature will allow you to visualize your environment and view real time status of your machines. Make sure you have active maintenance before upgrading to version 8.03.00 or newer to enable this feature. This is a video tutorial on how to get started, but before we get to that here are some screenshots of the various features.
