CNC Software, developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, is partnering with Machining Cloud GmbH to provide Mastercam users direct access to the cutting tool product data available on the cloud.
This reduces the frustration and time associated with obtaining the tooling information needed for their programming, simulation, and other shop floor activities, according to the company.
“Machining Cloud's mission is to provide the manufacturing community a single source of access to complete and up-to-date product data from the leading manufacturers of cutting tools, machine tools, and work holding,” the company said in a statement. “Through the Machining Cloud tablet and desktop apps, Mastercam users will have access to a rich set of software features including cutting-tool selector, configurator, and advisor. Upon completion of the Mastercam Machining Cloud Interface, the cutting-tool manufacturers’ descriptive, usage and geometric information, and application knowledge will be readily available for users to directly apply to their Mastercam system.
