Development – ToolDesign using Variant Design with Algorithms

The market conditions in the industry of precision tools have changed in recent years. Triggered by this change, GAP has developed a new management tool over the past ten years called ToolDesign.

As a control module, ToolDesign uses algorithms to automatically construct precision tools such as taps, drills and end mills. The construction of these tools requires highly complex geometry-parameters – up to 190 different data are required per tool variation.

The development of ToolDesign was based on a standardized GAP-data structure that comprises all of Schumacher Precision Tools’ technology data in the sections product, production and process control. The data is then used to generate the necessary CAD-models for production.
