TDM Systems’ TDM Cloud Line is a cloud-based solution for tool data management. The solution enables manufacturers to access tool data and is based on TDM 2017 Global Line, the tool data management solution launched earlier in 2017.

The solution allows users to download and manage data from thousands of tools without having to purchase them. It can test alternative tools during the product design process and select the optimum tool for the specific design. At present, users have only data from tool manufacturers available to them, which can vary both in quality and depth. Data from the TDM cloud is said to be ready for immediate usage in the virtual cutting process.

TDM Cloud Line offers setup of a tool database; optimally prepared, tested and comprehensive tool data for immediate, intuitive use; provisioning of correct CAM data; manufacturer-independent tool assembly; statistical evaluation; clearly structured and individually configurable user interface and a cloud-based solution.

  • Standard Tool Classification for Better Data Communication

    Cutting tool manufacturers have worked together to create a generic tool catalog format that helps link cutting tool information with applications supporting data-driven manufacturing.

  • MTConnect Is For Real

    Introduced at IMTS 2008, this communications protocol for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment is already helping shops and plants implement effective machine monitoring systems. Although these "early adopters" are motivated by the long-term promise of enterprise-wide efficiency gains, their experience with pilot projects shows that benefits derived in the short term are substantial and worthwhile.

  • Understanding MTConnect Agents and Adapters

    MTConnect agents and their corresponding device adapters are simply small computer programs that work together so that MTConnect can make shop equipment and networks more readily connectible. In a nutshell, adapters enable existing shopfloor devices “to speak MTConnect,” and agents enable MTConnect messages and data files to be transmitted across a network to MTConnect-compatible applications.
