FANUC and MachiningCloud Partnership
Recently, FANUC Corporation and MachiningCloud have announced their partnership. First, let’s say a word or two about FANUC’s new business partner. MachiningCloud is a product software provider for CNC machines and cutting tools. On the other hand, FANUC corporation is the developer of Intelligent Human Machine Interface (iHMI). This know how allows to provide consistent support of shop floor operation during the three production stages: Planning, Machining and Improvement.
Intelligent Human Machine Interface by FANUC is not just a display function but also the platform for the Internet of Things. IoT feature enables to upload information to the machine as well as share it within the whole production system. Partnership of FANUC with MachiningCloud is meant to integrate the management of tooling resources within one platform. MachiningCloud is going to provide tool data critical for their import to CNC machines and iHMI.
As FANUC’s corporation representative states: “With MachiningCloud, FANUC’s customers will have a simpler way to find the right cutting tools as they will have direct access to current and complete tooling data without the hassle of searching through printed catalogs and multiple websites to find ideal tooling. This convenience and accuracy will save time and increase efficiency on the shop floor”.
