Session Topic: The Digital Transformation of the Cutting Tool Industry

Using the Cloud to deliver manufacturing knowledge helps shops make more informed cutting tool decisions

Capturing the leading cutting-tool manufacturer’s product data and expert advice in a knowledgebase and using the Cloud to distribute it provides end users with direct access to up-to-date product information allowing them to more quickly select and assembly an optimal cutting-tool package from the universe of possibilities. Subsequently feeding their selections into their shop’s CAD/CAM software then empowers customers to more efficiently plan, program, monitor and optimize their operations by eliminating the need for paper catalogs, multitude of websites and telephone calls, and manual data entry.

Target audience Strategic management at CNC machines tool and cutting tool manufacturers, and their end users


  • The cutting tool industry is one the verge of a digital transformation poised to save shops time and money
  • Wide-spread access to consistent advice improves performance
  • Going digital means moving away from manually entering data
