IMCO's digital product data via MachiningCloud
This partnership will simplify the process of finding the right machines, cutting tools, and workholding for IMCO Carbide Tool customers for their manufacturing jobs, as they will have instant access to current and complete tooling data without the hassle of searching through printed catalogs and multiple websites to find ideal tooling.
IMCO 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 IMCO 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 manually typed into the end user's software," says Pierre-Francois Tavard, cloud evangelist for MachiningCloud. "By utilizing cloud technology and industry standards, including ISO13399, STEP, GTC and MTConnect, the MachiningCloud is capable of serving up-to-date product data to virtually any shop floor software or system."
Perry Osburn, president of IMCO Carbide Tool Inc. states, "We want to help our customers achieve their highest level of productivity utilizing the latest technologies through tool design and cost savings from effective programming. Utilizing MachiningCloud will help us along this mission by getting the necessary information directly into the customer's software to reduce design time and increase accuracy for maximum efficiency."
