The search for complete tools, tool components or accessories can be very time-consuming. The ToolOrganizer from Zoller Inc. works in conjunction with the company’s TMS Tool Management Solutions Silver software package to keep tooling components organized.

According to the company, the system provides reliable orderliness and lowered costs by helping to eliminate the depositing of tools in incorrect places, machine downtime because of missing tools, and wasted time. Tools, components and accessories are managed systematically and efficiently, allowing shopfloor personnel to find the exact location of the desired tool or component with a single click. The storage locations are displayed graphically in 3D (tools with images).

Stock entries are automatically passed on to the system via a direct link, and the corresponding drawer is unlocked. As the system identifies minimum stock levels, purchasing orders can also be triggered. An analysis of tool consumption, including the generation of hit-flop lists, is also possible with this module.
