Zoller Smart Factory Solutions connects production process steps for efficiency, less scrap and to secure data transfer across facilities. Using Zoller presetters, users can preset and measure tools and then store tool data in the central Zone database, which is accessible across facilities. This is said to ensure consistent, accurate data usage.

Through the 3D-designed warehouse, users can program specific Zoller storage cabinets and track tool assemblies and single components to their exact locations and compartments. The company says this eliminates the need to search for tools and reduces tooling costs by giving users an accurate picture of their stock at any given time.
