TOOLMAX
Gestão e Maximização do Tempo de Vida da Ferramenta de Corte

Challenge

The need to increase productivity leads the industry to look into areas with the greatest potential for optimization. Cutting tool technology is virtually ubiquitous to the vast majority of the manufacturing industry. The cost of production attributed to cutting tools is equal to or greater than 8% and can reach 34% if we count rejected products and dead times related to poor management of cutting tools, including the lack of knowledge of the actual level of wear of each tool

Solution

MAIN OBJECTIVE: To strengthen research, technological development and innovation.

The TOOLMAX project aims to produce a tool management solution, consisting of software and a storage solution, whose objectives are to fully exploit the cutting tool lifetime, increase its utilization rate and reduce tool stocks, with consequent gains in efficiency in the production process. As complementary and equally relevant objectives, reducing the accident rate and the increase of the overall quality of produced parts is also intended. The typical company profile target is the mold company, although it is possible to adapt the recommended solutions to different technological scenarios.
