The MachiningCloud represents a new channel through which IMCO will provide its customers with the digital product data needed to run today's data-hungry shop software. This partnership will simplify the process of finding the right cutting tools for IMCO Carbide Tool customers for their manufacturing jobs, as they will have direct access to current and complete tooling data without searching through printed catalogs and multiple websites to find tooling.
IMCO customers will be able to download 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 then manually typed into the end user's software," says Pierre-Francois Tavard, senior product manager 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, "IMCO's main mission is to provide quality tooling and now, thanks to our partnership with MachiningCloud, users can get the speed and feed information needed to run their application at the optimal level with just the click of a button. Accurate information available to be downloaded right to your computer and loaded directly into your job. It is amazing and truly innovative."
