Online Configurator for Custom Toolmaking

Nov. 9, 2023
Semi-standard and special tools can be custom-designed and -made quickly thanks to an easy-to-use web interface for indicating all relevant parameters – configuring the finished product with just a few clicks.

INOVATOOLS’ online digital tool configurator allows users to identify semi-standard tools quickly and easily from a catalog on the basis of predefined standards and conveniently configure customized special tools based on their individual needs, materials, and processes.

“Using our tool configurator, customers can quickly and easily configure and order precisely the tool they need,” explained Norbert Geyer, head of customer service. “This saves time and increases efficiency. Whether semi-standard or special tools, the interface for entering all the relevant parameters is extremely easy to use. We ask about all sorts of tool properties and adapt these in line with the machining requirements. In this way, customers can configure in just a few clicks exactly the tool they need for their application.”

In addition to entering the required parameters, customers can upload technical drawings, sketches, photos, etc. via the service tool. The tool configurator automates the entire request and ordering process and reduces the need for person-to-person coordination by e-mail or telephone.

The tool configurator also saves time in downstream processes. For example, customers receive a quick response (usually within 24 hours) from Innovatools complete with a detailed offer specially tailored to their specific requirements.

Geyer continued: “Using the tool configurator, customers can create a tailor-made, application‑specific tool solution in just a few clicks of the mouse. In addition to the tool configurator, Inovatools offers personal consultations with specialists who help you to define the optimal specifications. Our tool specialists look at your specific machining requirements, and you receive the perfect tool manufactured to the very highest quality.

“We get to work as soon as your order is confirmed and deliver your desired product at record speed – usually within just a few working days. This takes special tool production to a whole new level of efficiency and ensures optimal planning certainty for our customers,” he concluded.
