Precision tools are of crucial importance for the quality and functionality of the components manufactured with them. Their share of the production costs is only about 3-5%, however, the tool costs can rise quickly if the tools currently needed are not available in stock. A machine operator searches up to 20% of his working time for the right tools and therefore often has "precautionary" stocks at the machine, which can unnecessarily increase the tool inventory by up to 30%.
With the eboy® tool dispensing system, LMT Tools offers the profitable solution for a reliable tool supply procedure. The individual tool requirements of the customer are thus available around the clock. It doesn't matter whether they are tools for turning, milling, tapping or drilling and regardless of the manufacturer: The stock is always optimized. There are no unnecessary costs due to personnel binding or capital commitment.
Two different versions are available: The eboy® "twistline", which is equipped with spiral conveyor elements similar to the familiar automatic dispensers in the consumer sector, and the eboy® "flexline lock" with drawers and single-hatch locking for larger or pre-set tools.
The available consignment stock is defined by agreed target and reorder levels. On reaching the reorder levels, the machine automatically triggers a requisition note for the LMT controller. The reconditioning of worn tools is also ensured. They go into the Service box of LMT Tools and are picked up at short notice and repaired in their original quality.
