TAC System

Track and automate your CNC tools—allowing you to track tool life and get the most out of each cutter.
The TAC system tracks tool life and optimizes what many factories find to be a money pit. In fact, with TAC, tool dimensions are automatically set in the machine control and your machine won’t run if the incorrect tool is loaded, eliminating human error mistakes. Gain a lot of visibility in your factory by tracking and optimizing the life of each of your CNC tools.

What Makes TAC Different?

Ease of Use

Our user-friendly interface means this program truly does take the headache out of automating your factory. State of the art doesn’t have to mean confusing or complicated when you choose TAC for your Industry 4.0 factory. TAC is available as a standalone system or can be integrated with NC Tool Comp for a complete tool resurfacing process.

Machine Learning

Establish a baseline of optimal tool life and adjust real-time to ensure you’re getting the most out of each cutter. See in real time which tool is being used at which machine and the remaining tool life.


The TAC system uses QR codes and a database to store and retrieve tool data. This takes less than a second. Other systems use RFID chips that can take up to a minute to retrieve the tool data.

Platform Independent & Versatile

RFID chips require proximity and careful positioning, but QR scanners can be mounted anywhere and scan from great distances. The TAC system is also compatible with all machine types.
