TDM supports the NC program-related management of tool lists and the recording of cutting data from production and also makes the permanent optimization of tool use possible. International production companies can introduce centrally defined, cross-plant tool standards. This reduces costs and cycle times.
The software architecture of TDM enables the implementation of local, company-wide, and in the future cloud-based solutions. At the same time, TDM is also available on various output devices. With TDM, you can map single processes as well as install universal, company-wide solutions. Single plants access the central TDM database as clients. As necessary, they see and manage only the production resources related to their own plant. Use of the TDM can be configured individually.
Neutrality creates openness
TDM is a neutral system – it is open to all tool manufacturers, but at the same time it is not linked to specific systems. Thus, it can communicate with many current systems from planning and production. This neutrality enables TDM to integrate into the complete tool lifecycle. The system collects data from production and transfers this data to other systems. Furthermore, TDM is open for connections to many online platforms for tool data.
