It records all movements and thereby guides you securely through the tool cycle in production. The module is an important basic function in the holistic Tool Lifecycle Management process. It records the inventories of tools and production equipment.

The Tool Crib Module also processes information on their condition and location. This combination creates a solid basis for planning the tools, orders, and machine occupation. The software supports ordering processes, controls and manages automated and manual crib systems, and ensures optimum crib inventory levels. The right tool in the right location thus becomes a reality.

Efficient management of crib inventories

The TDM Tool Crib Module organizes items and tool assemblies by inventory and crib location, taking into account the current location of the tool. This creates absolute transparency and economic efficiency for your tool organization. The software can be used with both manual and automatic crib systems. Barcode scanners are supported for reliable tool identification. This means flexible structures.

The purpose of the module is to reduce efforts for logistics and supplying production equipment. At the same time, efficient storage  increases tool availability on the machine.
