Tool data for all production requirements

A central database sits at the heart of the TDM Base Module Global Line. It keeps the real tool data available as a digital twin for all departments involved in the production process. Numerous interfaces secure data exchange at both planning and production level.








Tool data requirements vary from department to department. The TDM Base Module depicts these in its data structure and manages tool items, tool assemblies, and tool lists at various levels. Each data level offers users comprehensive options for defining and storing information, data, photos, etc.

Our TDM Base Module is a must for all manufacturing companies looking to improve their tool management and go digital. The following offers an overview of the functions:

  • Users can call up and use the centrally stored tool data from any location worldwide
  • The highly compressed data transfer helps secure high-performance tool data management around the world
  • Fast retrieval: The new TDMsearch tool search function scours the entire TDM application for the individually entered search terms
