Kurt Workholding and MachiningCloud jointly announce their partnership to provide Kurt product data on the Cloud. Kurt provides a full line of workholding products from manual and hydraulic vises to zero-point clamping. MachiningCloud is a product data provider for cutting tools, machine tools, CNC machines and workholding.

The Kurt MachiningCloud partnership will utilize the convenience of cloud-based technology, which enables customers to optimize the way they gather information for their manufacturing operations without having to search through catalogs. The completed integration will help Kurt customers increase their productivity by providing instant access to up-to-date 3D CAD models for the company’s line of workholding products.

“While customers will save time by using MachiningCloud for choosing workholding solutions for a given job, there is an even bigger benefit from the accurate 3D models for CAM and simulation”, says Christophe Rogazy, Director of Product Management for MachiningCloud.
