Seco tool items are now available on MachiningCloud. Over 10,000 tool items including indexable milling and tooling systems can be accessed by Seco customers. Solid carbide, holemaking, and turning tool items will be continually updated in upcoming releases. Seco Tools is a global provider of metal cutting solutions for milling, turning, holemaking and toolholding. MachiningCloud is a product data provider for world-leading cutting tool manufacturers, CNC machines, and workholding.
The Seco MachiningCloud partnership utilizes the convenience of cloud-based technology, which enables customers to optimize the way they gather information for their manufacturing operations by effortlessly searching for the proper cutting tool that best fits their cutting conditions without having to search through catalogs or multiple websites.
Furthermore, Seco customers will be able to increase productivity and achieve greater accuracy by easily downloading descriptive, usage and geometric information directly into their shop floor software, such as CAM, simulation, and tool management systems.
“MachiningCloud’s ability to feed Seco product data directly into their customers’ shop software offers a tremendous benefit over paper catalogs and websites that currently offer this type of data which is then manually typed into the end user’s software,” says Pierre-Francois Tavard, Senior Product Manager for MachiningCloud. “By utilizing cloud technology and industry standards, including ISO13399, STEP, GTC and MTConnect, MachiningCloud is capable of serving up-to-date product data to virtually any shop floor software or system.”
Helena Söderström, VP Product Line and Marketing at Seco says, “We believe that being visible in several channels and partnering up with external parties is crucial in today’s market place. The partnership with MachiningCloud is an additional channel to offer machine shops the next level of productivity through our high-performance products and supporting services. Users of MachiningCloud will have the possibility already in the simulation phase to use Seco products and our product data. It will also be possible to connect machines in production to the tool library”.
