We’ve previously covered how a new app for Android, iOS and Windows called MachiningCloud can find the right cutting tools in less than half the time. The benefits can’t be overstated. The problem is that finding the right tool is only half the battle. You still have to purchase, program, inventory, preset, machine, report and collaborate with the tools. The process is slow and cumbersome. MachiningCloud can make it faster and easier.
Integrate Tooling Packages
With MachiningCloud, CAD/CAM Programmers can make better tooling decisions in a fraction of the time, but the feature set would be incomplete if this information couldn’t be saved and shared. Easy collaboration fills the gaps of a cutting tool workflow.
After you’ve identified the right tools and created an assembly, your tooling packages are securely saved on MachiningCloud for future reference and use. Everyone who needs tooling information gains the ability to collaborate. You can share tooling packages with people anywhere, anytime and even if they don’t use the app, tool lists can be downloaded as standard reports. You can export MachiningCloud reports into ERP, MES and other software applications to make a smoother workflow for purchasing, programming, inventory, presetting and machining.
Collaborate with Job Management
You can also create, store and share jobs with the MachiningCloud app. Job reports output to PDF and Excel to help aid a Bill-of-Material which can include 3D tool drawings, spare parts, callouts, as well as descriptive and usage data.
By integrating valuable cutting tool resources with one application, you can simplify the cutting tool search process and get more options. MachiningCloud bridges the gap between cutting tools and software, so you can streamline the machining process to save time and increase accuracy.
