Zoller, a supplier of tool measurement and presetting systems, is partnering with Swiss firm Machining Cloud, GmbH on the new machining cloud intelligent manufacturing application, a platform that offers applications, resources, services and information from a centralized database.
Machining Cloud is able to intelligently advise manufacturers regarding best practices specific to each unique manufacturing process. By enhancing part quality while increasing productivity, Machining Cloud is designed to make the job of manufacturing easier than ever before.
With Machining Cloud, Zoller makes available to manufactures its array of tool management software.
“The Machining Cloud revolutionizes the manufacturing process with its efficiency and, with all of its products, Zoller contributes to more efficiency in the manufacturing process,” says Alexander Zoller, CEO. “We give great value to forward-thinking partnerships for innovative products that create real value to users, such as the Machining Cloud—which significantly improves the world of manufacturing.”
Like all cloud-based applications, Machining Cloud uses a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data. Whereas traditional computing entails storing, managing and processing data on local servers or personal computers, cloud computing offers vast amounts of readily accessible information, whenever and wherever it’s needed.
Because information provided by Machining Cloud can be directly connected to computer-aided-manufacturing, simulation and tool management software, Machining Cloud data is automatically imported and readily accessible for the generation of shop-floor documentation and properly-formatted tool lists. The simple Machining Cloud interface is easily adaptable to the needs of any shop. It supports Microsoft Windows® 7 and 8, as well as Windows tablets, Android tablets and iPad.
