Allied Machine Announces Updates to Product Selector Online Recommendation Tool

Increased product coverage and optional constraints enable simple, accurate holemaking technology selection

Dover, OH - Allied Machine & Engineering Corp, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, announces updates to its Product Selector online recommendation tool. The program, which customers can use to find new tools to meet their needs or access critical data about their existing equipment, has been expanded to include more drilling products from the Allied catalogue, and to include several optional machine constraints. With these additions, Product Selector ensures that customers have full access to key data in their searches.

With the recent addition of the Flatbottom T-A® Drilling inserts and new T-A holders to the Product Selector catalogue, customers can now access Allied Machine drilling tools through the online recommendation tool. Additionally, customers now have the option to set machine power, thrust, and coolant capability as program constraints, ensuring that only tools appropriate for individual customers' applications are suggested by the program.
"The addition of new products to the Product Selector tool, as well as the optional constraints, ensure that we are able to give customers all of the information they need to make the best holemaking tool purchases possible," said Robert Brown, Product Manager at Allied Machine. "We are also able to provide fast, easy support for our existing customers who want a recommendation before use."
Product Selector gives customers access to information such as the recommended speed and feed for the tool, as well as power and coolant requirements. This is key in selecting new tools, and also gives customers a rapid and simple alternative to contacting Allied Machine's technical support for details on their existing equipment.
