ToolsUnited represents the largest tool selection and tool data source on the web. ToolsUnited was initially published in 1995 as CD ROM solution called „CIMSOURCE Professional“. The ToolsUnited domain has been active since the year 2000.
Ever since the beginning we are driven by three strategic insights:
Find out more about Standard Open Base (StOB). The technological foundation of ToolsUnited and the only truly comprehensive data exchange standard for cutting tools in the world. The only standard that truly encompasses all four elements of tooling data. Geometry, technology (speeds & feeds), 2D/3D, e-commerce.
Rather than trying to establish a „new“ standard, the approach to StOB was and remains to harmonize proven standards into a comprehensive specification and to make it applicable for the metal cutting industry.
