The shop floor tool management system for Siemens’ Sinumerik Integrate is called Shop Floor Integrate Resource Management (SFI RM). It offers a thorough picture of all necessary and available tools at any one moment, including real-time information about machine tools and tool magazines, their location, and how long they have left to live.

You can make sure that the production tools included in your manufacturing plan are the right ones by using this cutting tool management software in conjunction with NX CAM and Teamcenter Manufacturing Resource Library (MRL).

Monitor Your Tools

You can track the life of each individual tool using an integrated tool management and identification system.

By contrasting them with the tool’s existing condition on the machine, you may calculate the real tool needs for the upcoming production period.

Plan Your Tool Utilization

With a networked presetter station, you can automate measurement and inspection to gather crucial information on tool preparation, such as tool length, diameter, corner radius, service life, and cutting edge quality. The offset and remaining cycle times for each tool and insert may then be determined.

Numerous tool carrier types, including Moby, Balluf, Bilz, and Barcode, are supported by SFI RM. To identify and trace the tool, utilise the chip/barcode on the holder.

SFI RM may evaluate and compare the available tools to the work tool list requirements when utilising Siemens Sinumerik controllers.

Scale to Fit Your Tool Needs

SFI RM may be developed to accommodate a range of manufacturing needs.

To transfer data and load or unload tools on a single machine, you can start by connecting a shop floor cutting tool management system to the presetter.

Additionally, you may link to the Teamcenter planning system to enable the direct transmission of planning data to production, expand the manufacturing infrastructure to control tools for the whole production facility, and more.
