PROXIA Tool & Data management – manage tools perfectly

PROXIA Tool & Data management – Increase productivity with PROXIA ToolDIRECTOR

PROXIA Product Tool-Data management example

PROXIA ToolDIRECTOR is an optional software solution to complement PROXIA MES, especially in the NC process for the machining industry. It manages tool components as well as complete tools. Parametric tool assembly simplifies handling in daily use and therefore eliminates errors. Material-related cutting data is allocated to cutting components and is available to various IT applications (e.g. CAM system). Tool manufacturer data can be read quickly with various import routines.

The central PROXIA tool and production information database is the foundation for ongoing optimization in the production process. Transparency and data availability in all process areas ensures higher productivity! The PROXIA DIRECTOR concept combines conventional tool data with additional process master data. The seamless combination of all data and information concerning the production process creates data consistency and demonstrably increases productivity.

PROXIA Tool & Data management – Functions & Features

  • Tool geometry – the ToolDIRECTOR tool management system provides powerful geometry functions. CAD graphics are also organized for tool parameters and cutting data. Graphic information from tool manufacturers can be read via CAD interfaces (STEP, SAT, STL, DXF, DWG, etc.) Graphics must be processed so that tool graphics can also be used for simulations and CAM systems. The standardized BMG layer format is the basis of automated PROXIA tool processing. Unique data container technology enables various graphics applications with low processing costs.
