ZOLLER News: Update on innovations and proven products!

October 2013

Machines are generally the focus when discussing the optimization of set-up times and tool life. Tool management often comes second best. An expensive complacency - especially as it has been proven that getting tool cabinets organized pays dividends! Read the user report GMN to find out how to increase machine running time and save on tool costs. There is no question about it - introducing a software for tool management requires a huge investment in time initially for standardization and input of the tool data. This is the reason why ZOLLER are expanding their partnership with KROMI AG. The tool logistics experts offer companies complete outsourcing of their tool management - and ZOLLER offers the suitable interface for automated reading of the tool data from the KROMI data base to the ZOLLER data base in DIN 4000 format.
