More than a database

ToolsUnited is a managed service

The provision of tool data in a standardized way requires the collaboration of the tool vendors, the CAM-systems and the tool users. The challenge lies in insufficiently specified standards and the resulting room for interpretation.

Searching for tools doesn’t cost a dime

ToolsUnited is the perfect tool to help you find your perfect tool.

If you want to be guided to local distribution, please register and tell us where you operate so that we can identify a qualified distributor near you.

If you’re interested in our CAM interfaces – that means you’d like to download data tailored for your system.

  1. ToolsUnited is a managed service. Our business integration team is actively involved to generate “clean” data. Because the challenge to provide tool data lies in insufficiently specified standards and the resulting room for interpretation.
  2. One source for all: Instead of trying to collect the data from different vendors, you get a single source.
  3. ToolsUnited licenses StOB, a harmonized data base scheme that allows to map between different export formats, including a mapping for DIN to ISO.
  4. The business model of ToolsUnited is direct. Service in return for payment. No cross financing with other offerings, no “selling” of customer data, no ads. 
  5. Export-Options: we develop and maintain interfaces to other systems, including CAM, Toolmanagement and E-Commerce. You do not get that from your tool vendor

CIMSOURCE GmbH, a privately held German corporation.

The data you reveal during registration is solely used to operate ToolsUnited. We do not disclose data to third parties. 

The quality of a data record is defined by scope (which properties are provided) and when was it last up-dated? For up-date dates please check „Our Partnerships“, for scope of data provided check the required items on ToolsUnited. It’s free!

Registering creates a Search & Source account. This is forever free. The flat rate account runs for a minimum term of 12 months. It has an „auto renew“, unless you cancel online with 2 months notice. If you missed the deadline and still want to cancel you may do so anytime and we switch your account to the Pay-per-Use option. Flat rate charges that become due will be booked to your „ToolsUnited Credits“.

Go to “parametric search” on ToolsUnited. Click on “manufacturer” in the search field. The drop down list will show the tool vendors. If you look for certain items, key in the EDP or upload an Excel file with the respective EDPs to conduct a batch search.
