Tool room automation
You can quickly and easily convert your manual tool crib to a virtual dispensing machine, with AutoCrib Tool Crib Station. Just designate an existing tool room, tool crib or stores area as a tool crib, using AutoCrib Software. Install an AutoCrib Tool Crib Station at the crib window — and now, tool crib attendants or users perform the data entry using a touch screen. After the user selects the desired items, a receipt with bin locations is printed to assist the attendant or user in locating the items within the secured area.
Tool requests at remote locations
You can also place Tool Crib Stations at various locations or remote work cells throughout a plant to create a "runner system". Users enter tool or supplies requests at the Tool Crib Station. The central tool crib prints out the order, and issues and delivers the requested tool by a runner (at lower cost), while keeping the operator at his work center.
