TDM System’s Global Line 2019 includes its core solution software, comprised of TDM Shopfloor Manager, TDM Production Document Management, Graphic Functions and TDM Webcatalog.

TDM Shopfloor Manager enables comprehensive workflow management, incorporating booking functions and interfaces for crib systems, presetting devices and machines as well as for high-level systems such as MES, FMS and ERP. Users can create multiple shopfloor configurations to depict workflows in various production areas. Individual status management is a feature that enables the user to define the tool status themselves within the workflow.

TDM Production Document Management is a new module that enables users to assign documents to the production resources, via a drag-and-drop function, either in the form of a link to the actual saved location or as a copy on the TDM Global Line server.

With Graphics Functions, the user can generate rotation contours from 2D graphics using the Tool Contour Generator, with the aid of an intuitive user navigation system. In combination with the TDM 3D-Rotation Generator, simulation-ready 3D models can be generated for realistic collision-checking in CAM systems.

After registering with TDM Systems, the TDM Webcatalog provides cloud-based tool catalogs that obtain up-to-date verified tool data from leading manufacturers, the company says.

TDM Global Line 2019 features a hybrid mode, which enables the software to work in conjunction with other programs. Global Line modules such as the Shopfloor Manager can be used in combination with the TDM 2019 version. Access to the TDM Webcatalog is also possible for the current version. Everyday work can also be facilitated via the Multiple Plant Management system, which assigns equipment with improved precision.

    Swiss-type lathes and CNC automatic screw machines now have more power and flexibility and better accuracy than ever. As the popularity of CNC continues to grow on these machines, a good computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system is increasingly necessary to take full advantage of the machines’ true multitasking capabilities.

  • Integrated Tool Management with CAD/CAM Connection

    Better organization in a shop usually leads to higher productivity, and often, improved quality. That’s the objective of this modular tool data management software as it consolidates resources to encompass all aspects of production resource management.
