Of particular interest is ISCAR Tool Advisor, a "Swiss Army Knife" of industrial appsClick image to enlargeIscar has recently launched its Iscar World app, which consolidates all of the company's online apps, interfaces, and product catalogs in a single space.

The app, which compatible with iPhone and Android, gives instant access to E-CAT, ISCAR 4.0Pro, E-Commerce (an online tool ordering system) and a media channel.

Of particular interest is Iscar's Tool Advisor, an expert system for tool selecting, technical data, machining calculations, frequently asked questions and more, enabling users to review, compare, check and select the tooling solutions that are right for their needs.

The application constantly updates and expands its knowledge database by collecting new data, opening a virtual doorway to a whole world of updated information.
Smart manufacturing in the Industry 4.0 era features a combination of real and virtual worlds, based on network technologies, for every link of the manufacturing chain—including cutting tools. Advanced manufacturing systems require cutting tools to “possess” a rich world of relevant data – a high IQ - as a necessary condition for incorporating the tool into their intelligent machining processes.

Visit the ISCAR World page to download the app and get more information.
