TDM solution becomes a key tool at TOX PRESSOTECHNIK

TOX PRESSOTECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG caught on to the importance of tool data to an efficient shopfloor early. The global supplier of presses, drive systems and items for sheet joining and assembly technology has been using a digital tool management solution from TDM Systems since 2008. The company has expanded this solution over the years and it is now a key application for their shopfloor.

TOX PRESSOTECHNIK is also feeling the effects of ever-tougher global competition. As a result, the international manufacturer wants to be even more efficient than ever. The TDM solution was introduced at the Weingarten site in 2008 and, over time, has been built up into a comprehensively integrated solution. The result? Innovative process improvement and significant savings. But what exactly has changed thanks to the TDM application?

Before introducing the TDM software, TOX PRESSOTECHNIK managed its tools using lists. With 16 milling machines, which are used around the clock and retooled between eight and eleven times per shift, this was "an absolute catastrophe". "Nobody," explains Markus Kuhn, Head of CAM Programming & Tool Management, "was tracking which tools were used, where they were used and where they were stored". This problem affected production reliability and quality, and drove up tool costs and storage costs significantly.
