Tool management systems

TMS Tool Management Software from Zoller features transparent data transfer between TMS and CAM software.
This enables manufacturers to ensure their 3D tooling models are produced correctly. Thanks to the central “z.One” tool database, tooling data remains consistent regardless of who is accessing it.
The TMS software is also integrated with Zoller’s new Smart Cabinets, enabling each tool storage cabinet to be designed and graphically displayed in the software. Single components, tool assemblies and accessories can be tracked down to the individual compartment of the specific drawer and cabinet in which they’re stored.
Zoller’s “pilot 3.0” operating software simplifies the measurement of even very complex tool geometries. Presetting solutions shorten setup times drastically, while spindle up-time is increased. Companies are able to preset tools for upcoming jobs while current jobs are running. This helps reduce scrap and waste. With data output, tool offset information can be directly communicated to the machine control, eliminating potential human error in data transfer.
