Tool Vending

Tool vending is an organised electronic warehousing system in your workshop for machinists to call upon whenever they need a tool or insert. Your tooling is stored in a secure, purpose built machine with quick and simple user interface.

 

  • Reduce your key overhead cost of administering the tooling purchases by letting the machine reorder when it reaches a critical reorder point to replenish stock.
  • No more stock-outs, costly machine downtime and time-wasting searching for tooling around the workshop.

ToolPort™

 

What is it?

The ToolPort™ is a single insert vending machine that takes the inserts in your shop and puts them under one system; giving you a simple, reliable and organised system for inventory management.

 

How does it work?

The ToolPort™ works just like a candy vending machine, you tell it what it wants and it pops it out. As soon as you open the door you can see and select any item and dispense as many items as you need. When the item is dispensed the ToolPort™ logs the user, job number, time and date.
