Cloud Import Options
The import of your tool data into the TMS Tool Management Solutions is via a simple click with the import option from the clouds of suppliers such as ToolsUnited, NOVO, Machining Cloud, Hoffmann, EWS and others. Depending on which system you use, you can not only import 2D / 3D graphics, article characteristics and the technology data of individual components, but can also import entire assemblies.
- Reading instead of typing
- Maximum process reliability
- Maximum productivity
The ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions Module »Data import and export« stands for platform-independent importing and exporting of tools, individual components and setting sheets, accessories, machine data, and more.
The self-explanatory structures of import and export in XML data format guarantee a neutral exchange of data as well as fast and easy handling. The data can be linked to third party systems via the standardized data format.
- Optional linking to third party systems
- Process security
Data output with format generator
The software »Data entry/output/DNC with format generator« lets you output your measured tool data in control-adequate manner: via USB stick, network, DNC or serial interface (online). Over 100 provided control formats guarantee fast integration into your manufacturing process. You can generate numerous output formats or adapt existing output formats to your requirements. All you need to do is transfer the measured actual data of the tools to the machine control systems – this avoids entry errors and gives you the multiple benefits of reduced set-up times, fewer rejects, and more safety. The bottom line is huge cost savings.
- Safe, error-free data input
- Time savings
- Shorter set-up times
- Fewer rejects
- Process security
Technological data and article characteristics
The module »Technological data and article characteristics« is the software for the centralized and intelligent management of individual components and complete tools. This lets you catalog your tools appropriately and optimize their utilization. And finally, everyone in the company uses the same data as these are managed in a joint data base for the programming system. This optimizes your manufacturing process and gives safety. And: having to maintain only a single data base saves time and costs.
- Safety through uniform data usage
- Time and cost savings through only having to maintain a single data base
Article characteristic bar according to DIN 4000
DIN 4000 is the standardized article characteristics bar structure which was developed for a standardized and sensible definition of data for article characteristics. Using the complete DIN 4000 article characteristics bar structure you can define your individual components and complete tools according to the standard. This ensures a smooth exchange of information with third party systems such as CAD/CAM and NC simulation systems. This standardized and standard-compliant data base enables automatic tool data import.
- Time savings through automated tool data import
- Process safety through avoiding errors
Automatic generation of the envelope contours from article characteristics
Using the article characteristic structure which operates entirely on DIN 4000 basis, 2D drawings and 3D contours can be generated automatically from the stored or imported article characteristics in the ZOLLER tool management. This saves drawing of tools and guarantees process-safe assembly. Changes to your tools (i.e. extension lengths) are automatically implemented on the drawings. The thus generated 3D contours can be exported or provided to CAD/CAM and simulation systems for collision control.
- Fast and process-safe tool assembly based on tool drawings
- Collision control
- Times savings and process safety
Integration measuring machine
The BRONZE package includes the integration of a ZOLLER presetting and measuring machine. This allows you to also use all the functions of the TMS Tool Management Solutions on your ZOLLER machine.
