ToolTray.org, from Melos Manufacturing, provides organizational solutions for end mills. The company’s trays organize all end mills by diameter and length using high-density polyethylene slots. Each end mill has its own slot, preventing them from bumping into each other and causing damage to the parts. The company offers trays in several different configurations and provides custom designs.

Investing in an organizational solution prevents time and costs associated with looking for the correct end mill, losing end mills and damaging end mills in storage. With an organizational tray, machinists can locate the correct end mill in seconds.

The company provides CAD models used to make the trays on its website, allowing interested buyers to examine potential configurations, including measurements. The trays are pocketed to reduce weight, and it comes with holes for installing into drawers to prevent sliding.
