With pioneering work in tool management, TDM Systems has been making a decisive contribution to the competitiveness of manufacturing companies for 30 years: The innovative software solutions digitalize and optimize central manufacturing processes. They make companies more efficient and productive. And they facilitate the path to digital manufacturing – from small companies to international manufacturing groups, as a reliable partner worldwide.

This has been the core mission of TDM Systems from the very beginning. New additions include versatile modules, interfaces, data solutions and an attractive entry-level cloud application.  Tool management solutions are an integral part of the IT landscape at many companies and are as important as an ERP system.

Pioneers of tool management

In the 1980s, a small team in the manufacturing organization of Walter AG in Tübingen makes history. The idea is to manage tool data digitally, in one software, everything available at the push of a button, the tools visualized with graphics. In the midst of a new manufacturing environment, they developed one of the first ever digital tool management software solutions. The solution generated a lot of interest, as many other companies were also experiencing the same challenges with tool availability. The presentation of the first version of the TDM software at the Hannover Messe trade fair in 1989 marks the beginning of a lasting success story. The company was founded in 1993 as an offshoot of Walter AG – the birth of today's TDM Systems GmbH, which currently has more than 120 employees and supports over 15,000 users at over 850 customers worldwide in managing their tool data. As a member of the Sandvik Group (since 2004), TDM Systems has been drawing on the expertise of leading international tool manufacturers for two decades. Today, TDM Systems offers scalable solutions that manage tools and their data, network systems in planning and production, and thus comprehensively optimize manufacturing processes.
