The toolmaking database represents a wide range of tool types and manufacturing strategies thanks to its large number of data records.

In addition to benchmarking projects, the technological depth of the key figures allows statements to be made on the production and machine performance of companies. The comparison of the companies is always anonymous and tailored to the respective company (e.g. "German injection mold manufacturers with approx. 50 employees").
