We are completely confident that this exciting new partnership with MachiningCloud will help heighten our customers’ competitiveness in a world eager to embrace Industry 4.0 technology – by delivering the best tooling solutions right from Tungaloy’s knowledge base to our customer’s desktop or tablet,” says Satoshi Kinoshita, President & CEO of Tungaloy Corporation.
