With just a single app, POKOLM offers a broad array of sophisticated functions for users of milling technology, with each of them being a useful tool in daily work. Once it is installed, users have all important functions at their fingertips, even without connection to the Internet.

  • Cutting data calculator: The logically structured and easy-to-operate cutting data calculator is a versatile assistant for all milling applications.
  • Search function: Choose between four different search options – all of which are equally convenient and easy to understand:
    • Product tree: Milling cutter bodies, solid carbide milling cutters, as well as arbors and adapters, in the same clear structure which is familiar from POKOLM’s Catalogue and webshop. All milling cutters are supplied with detailed cutting data and a direct link
      to the cutting data calculator.
    • Search function: Limit product search according to material, technology, tool and existing machine configuration by way of intuitive parameter settings. Here, too, the values of the finally selected tool are then imported into the cutting data calculator.
    • Full text search: Enables users to browse the whole range of products; in addition, further products suitable for combination with the selected article are displayed.
    • Product configurator: Convenient parameter selection with reference to the machine, technology, tool or even the geometry data of the workpiece to be machined; in the result, all meaningful combinations of milling cutters, inserts, arbors and adapters to achieve the desired milling result are displayed.
  • Scanner: A scanner has been implemented to scan QR and barcodes. If users scan the barcode on the packaging of POKOLM inserts, for example, they are taken to the appropriate cutting material in the product database and can find detailed cutting data for all material and machining options almost instantly. If selected, they are then imported directly into the cutting data calculator.
  • Wish list: Highlight products with a star to add them to users wish list.

If you are connected to the Internet, the photos and drawings of all tools can be zoomed. CAM data in various formats are available for download or can be sent via e-mail as an attachment.
