MELVILLE, N.Y., and CAMARILLO, Calif. — MSC Industrial Supply Co., a distributor of metalworking and maintenance, repair and operations products and services, on Wednesday announced an agreement to be the exclusive e-commerce distributor of metalworking and MRO products to customers of MachiningCloud, an industry leader in manufacturing tool data.
MachiningCloud's cutting-edge platform offers a one-stop solution for manufacturing customers' machining application needs by providing advanced and comprehensive data that can be seamlessly integrated into their CAD/CAM programming systems. Customers can access manufacturer-supplied data and 3D and 2D models to easily find the optimal combination of tool components for their specific applications and implement them into their production processes. Under this exclusive e-commerce agreement, end users will be able to purchase those tools directly from MSC through MachiningCloud's digital platform.
"Helping customers quickly find the right combination of tool components to create complete assemblies for their applications saves time and money, consistent with our approach to improving the productivity of manufacturers' operations.
