July 18, 2019
Allied's app provides quick access to vital information for machinists.

Designed for machinists, tooling distributors, and manufacturing engineers working with Allied’s tools, the Machinist Tool app offers easy to navigate utilities and streamlines operations on the shop floor by mobilizing resources for drilling, boring, threading, reaming, and roller burnishing.


The app includes speed and feed, as well as trig functional, calculators, G & M machine code definitions, and seven different tap drill charts including the ACME general-purpose (full profile), the Unified National, and the ISO Metric – J Series. The app offers hot links to call Allied's engineers or to find a local Allied tooling distributor if users need technical support. Machinist Tool also includes quick access to GD & T definitions as well as the Boring Insert Selector, a utility that helps machine operators choose the correct insert for each boring application they might encounter.


The mobile app compiles a quick reference library of Allied Machine’s valuable holemaking and finishing resources such as technical guides and operation manuals. Accessible tech guides include an illustrated pocket reference for threading as well as recommended cutting data for ISO material types like hardened steel, stainless steel, and titanium. Machinist Tool is available for download on both iPhone and Android devices and is available in Chinese, English, French, German, Korean, Mexican Spanish, and Russian.
