Digital innovation in machine control systems

With ToolCommander® we drive innovation in machine control systems.

The independent software framework ToolCommander® enables the control and visualization of cluster-, inline- and batch systems in production as well as research facilities. The modular design ensures fast implementation and adaptation in various industries — even for complex systems. As a result, ToolCommander® provides the freedom to realize digital innovations.


The flexible software framework ToolCommander® can be used quickly and reliably in a wide range of industries, for example in photonics or optics. The integrated functions such as logging and material tracking, among other things, provide the basis for end-to-end control and continuous optimization of the machines.

Machine control systems to SEMI standards

ToolCommander® supports machine control systems in the semiconductor, PV, LED and MEMS industries in accordance with the relevant SEMI standards. Its modular design enables the ideal adaptation to complex machine systems. In this way Kontron AIS has implemented customer-specific control system solutions for vacuum coating machines for more than 30 years. Implementation includes the entire control system — including the installation of the required hardware.
