TDM Systems’ TDM 2017 and TDM 2017 Global Line combined software platform for tool data management systems has an emphasis on supporting Industry 4.0. It provides data transfer, can also be used in parallel to existing applications and replaces version 4.8., the company says. 

TDM 2017 provides two-tier architecture for direct communication between server and database while TDM 2017 Global Line uses a three-tier architecture with interconnected ISS application servers from Microsoft. According to the company, they carry out all computations, ensuring that the transfer of data is more efficient, and the application servers are freely scalable. 

The application data has been separated from the application itself, which makes further development of the system possible without having to change systems while doing so. This also improves data quality, security, service and the implementation of updates, the company says.

According to the company, further highlights include the 3D tool assembler in TDM 2017 Global Line and the tool search, which is like an Internet search as well as the TDM-check that examines data and displays areas of potential improvement. An import module gets tool data from standard sources and for data import, customer-specific templates can be defined and existing data records expanded.
