  Why Tool Management

Why every machining company needs tool management

The strength of TDM lies in the way it stores tool data by process-relevant characteristics, so you can always use the right tool for the job. TDM lets you select tools by tool type and processing method while ensuring that the tool remains available on the shop floor.

“The chips flew up in my face, but the feeling for the material was there”

Manfred Treß is a trained toolmaker; machining is his life. The production foreman at Liebherr-Werk Ehingen, Germany played a substantial role in the introduction of tool data management. When Liebherr’s own solution turned out to be non-Y2K-compliant, the choice went to the Tool Data Management of TDM Systems. A decision that Manfred Treß has never regretted. Everything runs perfectly today, but Treß fears that the feeling for material and product is being lost somewhat among young workers due to the increasing distance from the process.

Webinars for important Topics

Since 2013, TDM has offered monthly webinars alternating in German and in English about the TDM-software. They are moderated by Waldemar Geweiler, longtime service technician who knows many of the participants personally. He reports about news, refreshes knowledge, and provides tips. The webinars are part of the TDM-software service and update contract, which also provides access to new software releases, the FAQ data base, and the "Service Desk."

Expertise is the Best Advice

Long before a customer has chosen TDM, Thomas Mücke has invested a lot of time, work, and especially expertise. He considers himself a consultant, not a salesman. Whether on site or over the phone: Mücke analyzes the existing processes of the potential customer closely and reveals where and with what economic return TDM can be used.

Networking what belongs together

Tool Data Management is developing into a hub of digitally controlled production processes. Data with high information and utility value is everywhere: in the machine, in the ERP-system, in the CAD/CAM-programming. But conclusions about more efficient production processes can only be drawn by means of a meaningful evaluation. The tool recorded via TDM becomes a key point that interlinks all areas.
