Sandvik Adopts ISO Standard for Representing and Exchanging Cutting-Tool Data

Thursday, December 27, 2012
 
Sandvik Coromant, Fairlawn, NJ, has adopted the ISO 13399 standard for simplifying data representation and exchange for cutting tools. The standard provides for the description of product data pertaining to cutting tools independent of any specific system, making it suitable not only for neutral file exchange but also as a basis for implementing and sharing product databases and archiving. For example, there is no longer any need to change existing programming settings to use Sandvik Coromant tooling. ISO 13399 can typically be deployed to ease and optimize the exchange of data between CAD, CAM, CAE, PDM/EDM and other computer-aided technologies. Learn more at www.sandvik.coromant.com/.
