TDM Tool Management Software Offers Configurable Dashboard
Latest software enables users to keep an eye on all tool data, increasing the efficiency and agility of machining.
TDM Global Line software
Using TDG Global Line, users can achieve greater transparency for their tooling costs and key figures by individually configuring the dashboard with relevant reports either displayed in the dashboard, printed out or simply transferred to Excel. TDM NC-Program Manager Global Line is a new module designed to ensure a continuous production process, while the existing application expertise is retained by the company. There are also improvements in the TDM Shopfloor Manager and Tool Crib apps. The TDM Purchase Request Module Global Line can be used to easily manage tool requirements and forward them to an ERP system. This helps the company provide all the required tools at the right time and in the right quantities. The TDM Barcode Module Global Line expands the Global Line Tool Crib and enables companies to easily control processes by using barcodes. The TDM 3D Solid Editor Global Line can be used to modify and adapt 3D models, helping achieve significant time savings when creating 3D models.
For TDM users, the TDM 2020 Feeds and Speeds Manager can be used in conjunction with the Comara Box, where the actual applied cutting data is recorded, compressed and evaluated directly from the machine. By comparing the planned cutting values that are defined in the NC program with the actual applied cutting values in the machine, it is possible to specify reliable cutting values as early as the planning phase. Using the TDM Feeds and Speeds Manager, users can save expertise from production centrally so that even if employees leave the company, the knowledge is retained. Some applications for data and graphics maintenance have been optimized based on practical experience. Also, the completeness check of CAM-specific tool data has become more transparent and so has the automated calculation of collision data.
With today’s high-powered and graphic-intense CNC, operators have everything under control, all on one screen.
A computerized maintenance management system is a valuable tool to help automate preventive maintenance schedules on operational equipment.
Cloud computing has potential to be game-changing technology in manufacturing for everyone from small shops to extremely large manufacturing plants.
