"Getting started with digitization strategy is worth it," promises Peter Schneck, Managing Director of TDM Systems. He believes that companies can save at least 15% of the total cost of ownership through the comprehensive gathering and use of data.
TDM Systems will present the latest version, TDM 2018, with numerous new functions and interfaces just in time for the International Exhibition for Metalworking, AMB 2018. Data import, data handling and graphics editing have been further optimized. This will benefit users as they will save much more time thanks to the increased level of automation.
TDM Systems is further developing TDM Global Line 2018 so that it will be ready in time for AMB. As part of this line, the TDM Shopfloor Manager and TDM Machine Process Control (MPC) modules will ensure much more transparency at the manufacturing level. Every user can utilize these modules to arrange their own scope of tasks on a day-to-day basis with our apps, for example.
According to Schneck, the 3D tool assembly is the highlight of TDM Global Line 2018 presented at AMB. This function "saves users a great deal of time." At its booth, TDM Systems will illustrate how simple it is to build the tools in 3D. TDM Systems will also demonstrate how this solution can be used to manage the tool crib efficiently. Tool data expert Schneck mentions that the TDMcheck process, which checks data and processes in the TDM application and provides suggestions for improvement, will make work much simpler.
TDM Cloud Line for the entry-level segment
TDM Systems is adding TDM Cloud Line to its product range to make Tool Data Management worthwhile for small companies, too. At AMB, the Tübingen-based company will present the TDM Cloud Line "JobShop" and TDM Cloud Line "Tooling" solutions. These entry-level solutions enable companies such as contract manufacturers to optimize their plans and the use of their tools. The work plan makes it clear which processes are performed to produce the tools and which tools and fixtures are processed. This gradually builds up an expertise database for customers.
Schneck states that users can "get started" with both solutions "straight away; all they need is a computer and a web browser."
The Managing Director promises that an update to TDM 2018 or TDM Global Line 2018 is easy to perform at any time. This is because these solutions use the same technology so that all versions are further developed in parallel.
During AMB, TDM Systems will showcase its solutions both at its own booth and together with partners:
- TDM Systems Hall foyer ICS, booth DW 102 – Digital Way September 18-22
- Walter Hall 1, booth 1H30
- Seco Hall 3, booth 3C11
- DMG MORI Hall 10, booth 10C11
- KELCH Hall 1, booth 1E72
As an exhibitor at this year's "Digital Way" special exhibition, at 10.30 a.m. on September 19, TDM Systems will give a talk on the "topic of TDM & GROB just connected" together with GROB-WERKE as part of the series of conferences entitled "Digital business models".
