The interface transfers tool parameters of tool assemblies (nominal data) from TDM directly to the presetting device. This allows the user to send the data for the toolholders from TDM to the presetting device. Re-transferring actual measured data to TDM for each tool or for all cutting tools on a tool list is simple. This is the basis for tool provision.
A consistent Tool Lifecycle Management makes tool data and graphics available in the planning and production systems used at a machining company. TDM integrates these systems, allows data to flow and enables optimum processes. Tool data can move a lot. To do this, it must get to the right systems at the right time.
TDM interface examples for various presetting devices
Consistent tool data reduces time and costs. Individual information on tool assemblies and toolholder data from the TDM database is transferred via interfaces to the presetting device used. The interface prepares cutting tools correctly and measures them within the specified tolerances. Just as the NC programmer used them when creating the program.
