The costdata® machine database currently contains the data from > 9,000 machines. You will find there detailed information, prices and simulations for the usual production processes for 8 economic areas. Among other things, the machine data includes machines for more than 60 production methods, which are classified according to DIN 8580.

Relating to every machine you will find information about e.g. energy demand, floor space,investment costs, etc. as well as typical features of the associated assembly method (e.g. pressing force, closing force, etc.). Each machine-record may be imported to the calculation and there it is changeable or adjustable. Thus it is possible to calculate with daily precision a machine-hour rate or the process cost of a product accurately.
