TDM tool management software

In today’s modern production, the data flow of cutting tools is becoming increasingly important. Cutting tools need to be on the right machine at the right time. To ensure that this process runs smoothly, all involved systems in planning and on the shopfloor must communicate with one another. A uniform database for tools is an indispensable prerequisite here. The solution is TDM tool management software.

The TDM software developed by TDM Systems help you organize and integrate tool data in all phases of planning and production. They represent the link between ERP, PLM, and MES. Firstly, they record the master data in a central database. TDM creates tool items and tool assemblies, including 2D drawings and 3D graphics, available for CAM and simulation systems. Secondly, the software physically organizes tool circulation at shopfloor level. It thereby establishes the necessary transparency regarding tool inventories, as well as the condition and current location of tools. This is the only way to secure optimum demand planning and reduce costs.
