LMT Onsrud LP (Waukegan, IL) and MachiningCloud (Camarillo, CA) have jointly announced a partnership to provide LMT Onsrud product data on the Cloud. LMT Onsrud manufactures solid-carbide end mills, Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) tooling, and routing tools, amongst other tooling. MachiningCloud is a product data provider for cutting tools, CNC machines and workholding.
The LMT Onsrud MachiningCloud partnership will utilize the convenience of cloud-based technology. This will enable customers to optimize the way they gather information for their manufacturing operations by reducing their need to research multiple catalogs or websites seeking the proper cutting tool that best fits their cutting conditions.
LMT Onsrud’s customers will also be able to download descriptive, usage, and geometric information directly into their shop floor software, such as CAM, simulation, and tool management systems.
Said Mark Hemmerling, LMT Onsrud’s vice president of sales and marketing, “At LMT Onsrud, we see the MachiningCloud solution as a seamless fit for our customers to research and select the most appropriate cutting tool for their application. More than ever, CNC programmers are being stretched to their limits and by streamlining the data exchange, they can focus on what matters most, productivity.”
“The ability for LMT Onsrud customers to feed product data directly into their shop software offers a tremendous benefit over paper catalogs and websites as MachiningCloud eliminates the need for manual entry,” said Pierre-Francois Tavard, senior product manager of MachiningCloud. “Finding the right cutting tool quickly and reducing the time to assemble the optimum combination of tool components will enable customers to save time and improve their shop’s workflow.”
