Hannover, Germany — The Machining Cloud Intelligent Manufacturing application, a ground-breaking new platform created by manufacturing-industry innovator Machining Cloud GmbH, will be introduced at EMO 2013, which takes place Sept. 16-21 in Hannover, Germany.
Machining Cloud is an intelligent and time-saving cloud-based application for manufacturers that offers applications, resources, services and information from a centralized database.
Far more than a library of equipment, Machining Cloud is able to intelligently advise manufacturers regarding best practices specific to each unique manufacturing process. By enhancing part quality while increasing productivity, Machining Cloud is designed to make the job of manufacturing easier than ever before.
Like all cloud-based applications, Machining Cloud uses a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data. Whereas traditional computing entails storing, managing and processing data on local servers or personal computers, cloud computing offers vast amounts of readily accessible information, whenever and wherever it’s needed.
Machining Cloud connects manufacturers to a vast wealth of manufacturing information within a single, easy-to-use and intuitive platform. With Machining Cloud, manufacturers have access to numerous analytical tools to manage processes and optimize specific cutting applications, as well as the ability to easily order the components needed to make these solutions a reality. Users can view and download virtual machine tools, workholding components, tooling assemblies and a wealth of other related pieces. Machining Cloud also eliminates the need to flip through paper catalogues and consult multiple websites to find and purchase the proper components for the job.
“In some cases, what happens is that manufacturers become accustomed to performing tasks in a certain fashion and aren’t aware that there may be better methods for completing the job that could cut 20 or 30 percent from their machining time,” says Michael Taesch, Machining Cloud project manager.
“For instance, Machining Cloud is able to recommend a better tool or workholder that can drastically cut machining time and make life easier in the process. When you consider that Machining Cloud is capable of making multiple suggestions over the course of multiple jobs, the time-saving advantage can be enormous.”
Because information provided by Machining Cloud can be directly connected to computer-aided-manufacturing, simulation and tool management software, MachiningCloud data is automatically imported and readily accessible for the generation of shop-floor documentation and properly-formatted tool lists.
The simple Machining Cloud interface is easily adaptable to the needs of any shop. It supports Microsoft Windows® 7 and 8, as well as Windows tablets, Android tablets and iPad.
