zidCode 4.0

Internet of Tools

IoT usually stands for Internet of Things. At ZOLLER, we like to think of it as the “Internet of Tools”. With the IoT platform zidCode 4.0 you can network your cutting tools with the processes in your production. Thanks to many output formats, zidCode 4.0 is compatible with many control systems.

With zidCode 4.0 you’ll understand all the prerequisites to make tool data, such as tool life, available at every level of a production process in order to digitally record the entire life cycle of a tool.

Simple to learn, easy to use

Functionality and usability go hand-in-hand when it comes to the zidCode 4.0.  The intuitively designed user interface makes it simple and easy to transfer tool data to your CNC machine.

Complete tool performance

The zidCode 4.0 is the networked communication platform that records, manages and provides tool data in a closed process. As soon as data like tool life is recorded in your processes, it can flow directly into that tool’s data record.

Using ZOLLER software tools, the zidCode 4.0 provides a real-time overview of tool performance in your production. This gives you more complete information for tool planning, managment and production.

Small investment for a huge return

With zidCode 4.0, you have all the elements for success at your fingertips. You gain security, accuracy and reliability, save time and make it easier for your employees to transfer data to the CNC machine. Even a lean, basic setup will quickly see these benefits.

Ready for automation

Since the zidCode 4.0 prepares your production processes for dynamic management of tool data, you’ll have the foundation in place to incorporate even more automation!

The zidCode 4.0 is the ideal basis for quickly integrating ZOLLER automation solutions into your production process later on. With ZOLLER, you’ll always stay technologically up to date.
