On Demand Demo - #3 Tooling Master Module
The tool master is the central repository for all things related to the production of a part through the use of reusable components such as patterns, core boxes, permanent molds, investment casting molds, and such things as trim dies, dead-heads, and rider or adapter plates.
Tooling is all about the tracking the life of the tooling, inspecting, controlling the movements, cost of the tooling including on-going costs through movement and repairs, revisions, and CAR’s or Problems.
With the introduction of the maintenance management equipment module several years ago, calibration and other quality instruments are typically now defined within that module.

Vinuela is a municipality in Southern Spain – not too far from Malaga.
Apart from the scenery the area is dominated by a large man made reservoir known as Lake Vinuela. I believe it was made about 50 years ago by damming local rivers.
"Are you finding it increasingly difficult to control your tools/patterns?"
Tooling within the software refers to patterns, mold boxes, fixtures, calibration instruments, as well as tooling dies. A huge benefit of having metalcasting specific software is that it knows what a tool truly is and how it is used in the operations.
The importance of tooling within the scope of metalcasting operations cannot be over emphasized.
In order to have a quality casting to ship, it is paramount that the process starts out with exceptional tooling.
