KELCH KENOVA set line V6 – now in a package with TDM Modules

Tool selection up to 50% faster – Tool provision up to 30% faster – Software in over 20 languages

Weinstadt, 12.07.2017. Kelch GmbH, which specialises in peripherals and services for manufacturers and users of machine tools for cutting processes, is now also launching the latest generation of KENOVA tool presetters in conjunction with modules produced by TDM Systems, the Tool Data Management specialists. The TDM Base Module minimises the time needed for the selection of tool data by up to 50%. The TDM Tool Crib Module organises components and complete tools, thereby saving time and costs. KENOVA set line V6 tool presetters are available for different development stages: from a manual to a fully automated version.

“The new V6 range is ideal for the majority of measuring and presetting tasks. Combining it in a package with the TDM software enables companies to ensure that tools are correctly prepared and measured within the specified tolerances,” explains Viktor Grauer (B.Eng), Member of the Executive Board and Head of Innovation Management at Kelch. Two modules support optimum performance:

  • The TDM Base Module represents software for organising tool components, complete tools, tool lists and other equipment within a central database.­ This allows companies to increase the frequency of use of its available tools and lower its tool costs by up to 25%.
  • The TDM Tool Crib Module helps companies to organise their tools in storage, for servicing and on the machine. Companies thus save time in the provision of tools and make up to 30% time and cost savings through transparent inventories in stock and in transit.

As part of its Smart Factory Service, Kelch offers its customers comprehensive advice and professional assistance in creating their own tool database.
