Jergens manufactures standard tooling components, vises and other workholding equipment, and MachiningCloud is a product data provider for cutting tools, CNC machines and workholding. The partnership utilizes cloud-based technology, which enables customers to gather information for manufacturing operations.
"Jergens is thrilled to partner with MachiningCloud to further syndicate our product data to the marketplace electronically," said Jergens General Manager Bob Rubenstahl. "Jergens has tremendous product breadth and depth, and MachiningCloud can facilitate numerous options to the shop floor. This platform will allow us to support more customers towards their goal of manufacturing efficiency."
"While customers will save time by using MachiningCloud for choosing workholding solutions for a given job, there is an even bigger benefit from the accurate 3D models for CAM and simulation," said Christophe Rogazy, director of product management at MachiningCloud.
