An essential tool library management system that connects directly to NX CAM

The Manufacturing Resource Library (MRL) can manage manufacturing resources such as cutting tools, fixtures and measuring devices used in manufacturing. The system helps you select tool components using a guided search to rapidly create a 3D assembly. The assembled tool can be used for toolpath creation and collision validation in NX™ CAM, a complete set of numerical control (NC) programming capabilities in a single CAM system.

This brief fact sheet outlines the features and benefits of the MRL, a tool library management system that’s fully integrated with NX CAM and NX CMM Inspection Programming.

Manage your important resources efficiently

With the MRL, you can manage your important resources efficiently with traceability and cost in mind. NC and Quality Inspection programmers browse and select these tools from the library right inside their NX CAM or NX CMM session. If you are using MRL in a fully managed Teamcenter® software environment, you can search for tooling, fixtures, machines and templates in NX CAM and in the Teamcenter Part Planner application.

More than 300 component data classes and 70 assembly data classes are provided in the MRL to store, search and select almost every kind of cutting tool. Discover more in this fact sheet.

Share resources, create accurate tool component lists, reduce costs and more

Other benefits and features include:

  • Sharing resources with multiple sites and control user access to specific groups, including suppliers

  • Facilitate creation of accurate tool component lists and enhanced floor documentation

  • Visualize resource assemblies or components with the MRL’s built-in viewer using a variety of formats

  • Optimize inventory and reduce
