Therefore, the interfaces to CAD/CAM and simulation systems offer particular advantages for your processes. TDM is integrated directly into the systems, meaning that complete tool data, 2D and 3D tool graphics are available for the requirements of the planning systems. Tools can be created in TDM with multiple feeds and speeds data records. Tools are selected according to various criteria, tool data records are loaded directly into the CAM library and the NC programs are simulated using physically mapped, simulation-compatible 3D tool graphics. Improve your processes by using tool data in your planning workflows.
