Platform Provides Worldwide-Compatible Digitalization of CNC Tools
Creston Industrial Sales has partnered with CimSource Gmbh to bring CimSource’s CNC-tool-digitizing platform to North America, with help from a new informational website, The site provides an introduction as well as advantages of two new cloud-based offerings, Tools United and ToolLink.

The offerings, according to partner officials, address a particular challenge faced by manufacturers: a near complete lack of available, accurate and universally compatible 3D models of the more than 1 million unique cutting tools and components currently in the market.  Without this critical data, attempts to digitize machining operations, utilize CNC simulation tools and optimize material-removal rates become exponentially more difficult.
