Mazak and MachiningCloud have partnered together to bring enhanced data management to machine shop floors.

Mazak customers will have direct access to complete and up-to-date cutting tool product data from world-leading cutting tool and workholding manufacturers, providing a simpler way to find the right cutting tools. They will have direct access to current and complete tooling data without the hassle of searching through printed catalogs and multiple websites to find ideal tooling. This convenience and accuracy will save time and increase accuracy on the shop floor.

With the completed Mazak MachiningCloud interface, key benefits will be available to customers:

  • Enhanced virtual machining experience through the assurance of having the latest cutting tool data
  • Convert the assembly data downloaded from MachiningCloud to Mazatrol tool data, tool model on Smooth CAM RS
  • The ability to make the best choice when searching for new cutting tools and when deciding how to best run them on their CNC machines 

We are excited about our collaboration with Mazak", says Chuck Mathews, Managing Director for MachiningCloud. "The mission of MachiningCloud is to bridge the gap between physical cutting tools and digital shop software. Our partnership with Mazak will streamline the programming process to save time and increase accuracy. By bringing together valuable cutting tool data and knowledge in one application, this simplifies the cutting tool search process and gives Mazak customers many more options and helps them make better tooling decisions."
