WinTool, a producer of tooling management software, has partnered with Machining Cloud GmbH to ensure that customers of WinTool have access to complete, up-to-date cutting-tool data from leading cutting-tool manufacturers, thereby increasing the accuracy and effectiveness of tool and process-management systems.
Upon completion of its Machining Cloud Connection, WinTool will offer its customers four key benefits realized through this partnership: Initial cutting-tool data import to save time for new customers who need to download data for a number of cutting-tool items to initially populate their WinTool database; Periodic data updates to verify that customers have the latest cutting-tool data for a given item; Cutting-tool application data from the Machining Cloud, which offers cutting-tool manufacturers’ latest recommendations on cutting speeds and conditions for a given cutting-tool assembly in a given material; and New tool search, which allows end users to search the entire manufacturer’s catalog for new tools not presently in inventory.
“The mission of Machining Cloud is to make much-needed tooling information more easily accessible to those who need it,” says Michael Taesch, cloud evangelist for Machining Cloud GmbH. “A partner like Win Tool, which operates with a very similar mission, will bring even greater benefits to manufacturers.”
Using the Machining Cloud Tablet and Desktop apps, users have access to a rich set of features, including Tool Selector, Tool Configurator, Tool Advisor, Tool Package / Job Management, Reporting and Commerce. Likewise, the Win Tool database easily interfaces with CAM, presetting, tool-crib management, purchasing, scheduling, and ERP software. By joining forces on Machining Cloud, WinTool ensures greater and more seamless flow of information throughout its customers’ shops.
