All Walter product data – ready to go.

Missing features? Rechecking lengths and diameters? Adding parameters by hand? All a thing of the past! In the new Walter e-catalog* for TDM, users in the design, planning, NC programming, purchasing and shopfloor departments will find comprehensive features, 2D drawings, 3D models and even photos.

Nowadays, a good product alone is no longer sufficient. Users also need to have access to the appropriate product data – the more comprehensive the better. With the new Walter e-catalog* for TDM, tool specialist Walter and TDM Systems are taking user orientation to a new level. The new catalog is the result of a strong partnership. On the one side is TDM, with extensive ­experience in the field of CAD/CAM systems and an clear understanding of the features that are required. On the other is Walter, where around 400,000 items of missing product data from various sources have been painstakingly researched and shared with TDM.

With the new Walter e-catalog* for TDM, we have set new standards in terms of quality and quantity. The product data is ready to go - users no longer need to add to it.

What’s different about the new catalog? The feature lists are one of the most important changes. The catalog currently contains almost 42,000 tool data records with a total of 505,000 features. Previously it only contained 100,000 features. For many items, only the essential parameters such as order number, name and model were listed. If features that the CAD/CAM system requires are missing, this means additional work for the user.

Completely new are the product photos, which make the work of users in the logistics department, for example, much easier. They provide a visual aid for searching in the tool crib and, due to their high recognition value, reassure users that they are making the right decision. Buyers also appreciate product photos for the same reason - a picture speaks a thousand words and does it much quicker.

Walter now has complete parameter lists for all known CAD/CAM systems. Cutting diameter, projection length, cutting length, direction of rotation, etc. – 20 parameters on average, everything a CAD/CAM system needs.

The new catalog features around 40,000 DXF drawings according to DIN/ISO. These can be extremely helpful when it comes to presetting. The previous selection of 3D models, which are indispensable for simulation and collision monitoring, has also been optimized and enhanced. With around 35,000 STP models, the Walter e-catalog for TDM covers all product ranges.
