The G.W Schultz (GWS) MachiningCloud partnership uses 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, websites, or calling tool reps.
Furthermore, GWS customers will 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 G.W. Schultz product data directly into their customers' shop software offers a tremendous benefit over paper catalogs and websites because it eliminates manual entry 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."
"GW Schultz is excited to increase the efficiency for engineers to select the best tools with little searching effort. Gone are the days where your only resource for products is in a stack of books on the shelf. GW Schultz has evolved to provide all of their standard products online and happy to further support MachiningCloud's ability to help engineers around the world to search for the right tool." Adam Lafferty, director of business development at G.W. Schultz Tool.
