In some work shops, it is not uncommon to have a multitude of inserts at individual work stations, in tool boxes, or at machines.
With so much variation in the market today, it can be difficult at times to inventory inserts and tool holders – particularly for larger facilities with numerous machines.
And with inserts priced about $10 each, this “lost inventory” can become very expensive.
Therefore, considerable savings can be made by efficiently maintaining insert inventory.
One solution is the SecoPoint Smart Drawer from SECO Tools Australia, a leading supplier of carbide to the manufacturing sector.
This is an insert dispensing system that can control stock levels of inserts and tool usage either at the console or remotely over the Internet.
It can automatically order tooling and generate necessary reports.
