Germany – Mapal-founded company in mid-2017, C-Com GmbH, is no longer a division within Mapal but now an independent company belonging to the Mapal Group. With 11 employees, headed by Giari Fiorucci and Dr. Jochen Kress, C-Com also has a new premise, the company has announced.
C-Com is said to provide customers and suppliers, based on clear defined rules and access rights, to maintain all their relevant tool data and share in the working environment.
According to the company, other tool manufacturers along with Mapal are now and many others will be on the C-Com platform soon. Among these are projects with the Bass and Emuge-Franken companies, which are currently being processed. In the line-up already are tool data from Schnyder, the Swiss tool manufacturer and Italy-based Vergnano, both of which have been maintained and shared on C-Com as a project in tool management since June this year.
In the aerospace industry, is the co-operation with Lübbering, producer of drill feed units for data exchange and handling, and newly formed Ladu electronic, which the company says are pilot projects that are doing well. The partnership with Mind-Sphere, Siemens’ new IoT cloud solution, for the exchange of machine data and tool data, is looking favourable as well, the company adds.
The C-Com platform will be officially introduced at EMO 2017, the world of metalworking fair in Hanover. The company says it will launch here four web-based modules namely: “Tool Dashboard”, “Dynamic Order Optimiser”, “Reconditioning Management” and “Machine Run-Off”.
Furthermore, different native iOS applications like “Tool Manager”, “Tool Trial” and “Data Care” for the mobile handling of data and documents in real time will be presented at the show too.
