The ZOLLER tool management - for the economical organization of tools and machines
BRONZE Basic Solutions ensures the economical organization of entire tools, individual components and machines. All tools and tool components are captured at a single point, saved in the software and managed. This avoids duplicate and multiple data storage.
Tool management is based on the practice-proven and user-friendly ZOLLER software »pilot 3.0«.
The import of your tool data into the TMS Tool Management Solutions is via a simple click with the import option from the clouds of suppliers such as ToolsUnited, NOVO, Machining Cloud, Hoffmann, EWS and others. Depending on which system you use, you can not only import 2D / 3D graphics, article characteristics and the technology data of individual components, but can also import entire assemblies.
With the TMS Tool Management Solutions BRONZE App, you always have your important tool information with you and can use these together with your colleagues. You can access every tool with your mobile device at any time from a W-LAN network, including graphics, parts list, list of accessories and list of article characteristics.
The ideal software module for smaller and medium-sized companies for the introduction of meaningful tool management. You can enter, manage and prepare tools, adapters, setting sheets and users from the comfort of your office. The efficient management of tools, individual components and setting sheets results in a maximum of manufacturing and planning safety. Searching for tools is a thing of the past using
standardized data import and visualization per webcam. The software excels through a user-friendly, intuitive user interface.
The ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions Module »Data import and export« stands for platform-independent importing and exporting of tools, individual components and setting sheets, accessories, machine data, and more.
The self-explanatory structures of import and export in XML data format guarantee a neutral exchange of data as well as fast and easy handling. The data can be linked to third party systems via the standardized data format.
The software »Data entry/output/DNC with format generator« lets you output your measured tool data in control-adequate manner: via USB stick, network, DNC or serial interface (online). Over 100 provided control formats guarantee fast integration into your manufacturing process. You can generate numerous output formats or adapt existing output formats to your requirements. All you need to do is transfer the measured actual data of the tools to the machine control systems – this avoids entry errors and gives you the multiple benefits of reduced set-up times, fewer rejects, and more safety. The bottom line is huge cost savings.
The module »Technological data and article characteristics« is the software for the centralized and intelligent management of individual components and complete tools. This lets you catalog your tools appropriately and optimize their utilization. And finally, everyone in the company uses the same data as these are managed in a joint data base for the programming system. This optimizes your manufacturing process and gives safety. And: having to maintain only a single data base saves time and costs.
DIN 4000 is the standardized article characteristics bar structure which was developed for a standardized and sensible definition of data for article characteristics. Using the complete DIN 4000 article characteristics bar structure you can define your individual components and complete tools according to the standard. This ensures a smooth exchange of information with third party systems such as CAD/CAM and NC simulation systems. This standardized and standard-compliant data base enables automatic tool data import.
Using the article characteristic structure which operates entirely on DIN 4000 basis, 2D drawings and 3D contours can be generated automatically from the stored or imported article characteristics in the ZOLLER tool management. This saves drawing of tools and guarantees process-safe assembly. Changes to your tools (i.e. extension lengths) are automatically implemented on the drawings. The thus generated 3D contours can be exported or provided to CAD/CAM and simulation systems for collision control.
The BRONZE package includes the integration of a ZOLLER presetting and measuring machine. This allows you to also use all the functions of the TMS Tool Management Solutions on your ZOLLER machine.
The ZOLLER USB camera is flexible, handy and equipped with 2.0 megapixels. The camera is fast and easy to operate, and records tool images directly at the workstation with freely selectable view frames. This straightforward, practice-oriented data unit lets you operate extremely economically in combination with visualization via the camera. Instant visualization in tool management reduces search times in the tool data base considerably.
The right information at the right time saves time and costs. With its universal, open data base access, the ZOLLER WebService lets third party systems access the ZOLLER tool data base in a standardized and easy manner. Among others, this enables access of CAD/CAM, NC simulation and ERP systems, regardless of operating system or programming language.
