Tool Control

Improve effectiveness of tool deployment by using service life management.

Cosmino ToolControl

The monitoring of tool use in production facilities achieves different objectives:

  • optimal utilization of tool lifetime/downtime (Standzeit) to reduce tool costs, change over times as well as unplanned tool changes to a minimum
  • monitoring of tool quality
  • monitoring of compliance with maintenance intervals
  • creation of a “maintenance history lifecycle file” for the tool monitored

Areas of Application

Cosmino ToolControl is a module of the Cosmino Suite. It monitors and plans the tool life and the utilization of tools making precise evaluations possible.
All data is made centrally available and at all times retrievable from other Cosmino modules or ERP systems. Thus Cosmino PreventiveAction using the Cosmino ToolControl data, enables preventive maintenance of tools to be initiated at the optimal point in time. Likewise, the use of tools by using Cosmino Traceability can be seamlessly tracked as well.

  • Quality assurance, as tool selection will be cross checked with order specifications
  • Complete transparency, as all operations and maintenance measures are automatically recorded in an electronic ” tool lifetime file”
  • Quick and correct decisions through the fully automatic reporting of operations and maintenance (with Cosmino DynaMon)
