Currently, many injection machine controllers in the market involve PC-based architecture, so engineers can conduct simple and quick operation on the controller via a human-machine interface. However, when there are too many machines in a factory, mining algorithms for multimachines and development of rear-end applications are often trivial and complicated. The operation systems of the machines in factories are different, and different machine models need different transfer protocols for data mining. Therefore, we need to develop different information platforms and machine production information mining systems for cross platform controllers. This research proposed an agent based remote monitoring system for injection machines to solve this problem. The agent-based production remote monitor system framework in this research has the following advantages. (1) It can transmit machine information cross platforms regard of constraints of different operating systems. Controlling frameworks can process data mining and transmission. (2) It can send back machine information actively to the manager without operation of machine operators, mine specific information effectively, and screen unnecessary machine information. (3) It can categorize the required information, filter extra information, and elicit data the user needs.
