According to the exhibitors from Kelch, the TDM Base Module reduces the time needed for the selection of tool data by up to 50 percent. The TDM Tool Crib Module helps companies organize their tools in storage, for servicing and on the machine. As is explained, the software controls the storage systems and records the status of the tools. The tool presetters themselves are available for different development stages, from a manual to a fully automated version. As part of its Smart Factory Service, the German company says it offers comprehensive advice and professional assistance in the creation of tool databases. As a fully owned subsidiary of the Chinese Harbin Measuring & Cutting Tool Group (HMCT), it is part of the China General Technology (Group) Holding, (Genertec), Beijing, which is represented in 100 countries worldwide and has 45,000 employees in 51 companies. The Stuttgart-based manufacturers reportedly form the technology centre for the international business group in Europe. They develop, produce and market tool holders, cleaning devices, shrinking devices, presetters and measuring machines and also provide tool management services.
