Securely reducing your tooling inventory, generating re-stocking orders automatically and reducing tool purchase administration costs

Our robust, proven tool management solutions are the answer to all your tool stocking issues and more. Once we have analysed your tooling requirements and consumption levels, we will supply you with a fully stocked machine (our vend machines can hold from 528 to 1,680+ individual tools). Usage and stock levels are then automatically monitored and replacement tools sent before your stock runs out.

How it works

Our simple, secure and safe solution only takes a couple of minutes.

Firstly, operatives identify themselves
to the machine either by tapping their personalised smart card on the built-in wireless reader, entering a PIN code, or for added security both a PIN code and card.

 

Next, tooling is selected using the full-colour touchscreen, much like you would do when navigating through a smartphone to make an online purchase. Information on the tool is included to help the user make the right selection for their application.

Finally, the tool is dispensed in its own telescopic container to eliminate both the risk of injury to the operator and damage to the tool.

Full usage monitoring

Our simple, secure and safe solution only takes a couple of minutes.

Reporting is done at the click of a button, so you can manage your tooling stock from any web browser at any time, anywhere.

 

As experts in both tooling manufacture and industrial vending, we couldn’t find a back-end system that suited the specific needs of the engineering industry, so we developed our own.

Rigorously tested in the field, our system is cloud-based and gives you real-time reporting and full remote access. It’s robust enough to continue vending even if your internet connection goes down, and clever enough to automatically update itself when back online.

 

Data capture is via a 4G platform. There is an additional cost for this facility. Other options include WiFi or fixed ethernet connectivity.

Detailed reporting can be requested by the operator, department, machine, cell or product, and can be exported to PDF, CSV or email.

Infinite Possibilities

Quickgrind infinite possibilities

 

Without the limitation of catalogues the possibilities are infinite

 

Don’t limit yourself to standard ranges. Instead, choose solution-based tooling, that gives you the right tool, for the right job, at the right price. With the marginal cost increase more than covered by improved production throughput and efficiency.

Ordering is as easy as one, two, three…

All our tools can be designed specifically for your application and are available in virtually any size, diameter, radius, neck relief, coating or reach. Many are available with chip-breaker, through-coolant and other options.
