Starting today, scan and find tools with ease!
RFID chip with a binary data structure that is not directly readable and with a limited amount of data. High cost intensity as well as possible data loss due to induction (shrink fitting of the tool).
High risk of vendor locking (manufacturer dependency) of the read/write hardware to be used. Depending on the amount of data to be read/written, access can only be gained through longer downtimes.
Non-uniform structure of the binary data structure with large CNC control variety.
The data structure is defined by the machine/control manufacturer or the user himself. Therefore the user must always pay attention to how the data structure on the current chip is to be interpreted during read/write operations.
Manual selection of the machine control used (the user must know with which control the chip was written).
Binary data on the chip can only be managed in simplified tabular form. The additional storage of user-defined data such as 2D/3D graphics is not possible.
The worldwide unique 2D.ID marking can be applied to any tool component at low cost, easily and at any time retrofitted. Enormous cost savings during implementation within production.
Scanning of the 2D.ID by commercially available hardware possible. This is a supplier-independent and cost-effective way to scan the 2D.ID without downtime.
The central database solution offers a free and unrestricted amount of data for measured values, 3D data and numerous user-specific information. The 2D.ID is only used to assign the data to the respective complete tool.
The free 2D.ID portal offers 24/7 direct and unified access to the knowledge database of numerous tool manufacturers/suppliers. Data import/export to the central database is enabled by an exchange interface.
Forward-looking production through visualization of all process information with uniform data interfaces between third-party systems such as CAD/CAM, DNC etc.
Automatable setpoint/actual value data transfer to/from the tool presetting device for fast and uncomplicated set-up through uniform interfaces.
Acting instead of reacting through uniform data transfer interfaces between all resources connected in the production process (CNC machines, robots etc.)
