Following the huge interest in the recently released cutting tool app from Industrial Tooling Corporation Ltd
(ITC), the UK cutting tool manufacturer is now introducing its customers to the new and complementary app from Widia
As the UK’s premier distribution, service and support outlet for the extensive range of Widia solid carbide and indexable tooling solutions, ITC is now introducing the new app to its customers which allows them to quickly access machining speeds and feed data for Widia tooling without interrupting production.
The newly released ‘machining central’ app scans the Widia product bar code or searches the corresponding order number of the tool or an ANSI or ISO catalogue number to automatically generate product information along with speeds and feeds in seconds.
Designed for machinists and engineers alike, the app also addresses specific machining needs that recommended speeds and feeds may not quite address. For example, it features three calculators based upon Widia’s NOVO programming software - the calculators include end milling and face milling parameters.
The app provides scan, search and calculate functions – providing a simple and quick solution without interrupting production.
ITC’s managing director Peter Graves said: “With the pandemic, localised lockdowns and safety restrictions impeding our ability to conduct as many ‘on-site’ assessments and face-to-face meetings as we would like, our ability to sustain our exceptional levels of support has to be complemented by Industry 4.0 technology and digital solutions in the interim.
“With a generation of engineers that are now familiar with accessing information from their mobile devices, the new apps can only be a positive solution in our efforts to further enhance the customer experience.”
Like the ITC app, the new Machining Central app from Widia can be downloaded from the app Store or Google Play.
