DataRealm has introduced an automated web-based metalworking tool life monitoring system known as ToolMon. Part of the company’s implementation of Manufacturing Business Intelligence solutions, the system predicts upcoming tool changes by hourly increments, compares tool life by machines, departments and plants, connects directly to cutting machines and analyzes tool life by parts produced or time-in-cut. It increases productivity and helps prevent unplanned downtime by collecting detailed operational data, including such critical measurements as time remaining for each tool.
