Tool Supply Systems: Eboy provides the perfect tool cycle
The Eboy tool dispensing system makes it possible to significantly simplify tool logistics and processes. On one hand, the operator can receive the tool he needs from the machine at any time. On the other, the dispenser functions as a kind of small tool warehouse with integrated tool management. This substantially reduces the overall cost of supplying the tools.
Up to 1,260 tools fit in a single Eboy dispensing system. Up to eight machines can be linked together using the appropriate control system, which can then handle the logistics of up to 10,000 tools. At the same time, this flexible system can accept tools of different sizes and types. Small drills and cutters are located in a spiral system. Larger tools, grinding wheels and high-value PCD and CBN tools can be stored in drawer units.
Guaranteed reliabilityAt the same time, the system also guarantees a reliable production process. Access to each tool is restricted to the employee who can identify himself with the appropriate barcode, U-Key, password or swipe card. He selects the tool and the required amount and then removes the tool from the collection tray. Used tools or tools removed by mistake can be placed on the return flap. Simultaneously, special software keeps production planning staff precisely informed of tool stocks and usage via an electronic link. All statistical data is available in digital form and can be imported into Excel, for example.
LMT experts keep processes runningThe tool experts of the LMT Group perform the necessary logistics in the background: they order and deliver the tools, fill the Eboy and, if desired, organize the maintenance of returned tools. Clearly, this achieves an enormous reduction in work and effort compared to conventional tool procurement. Stored and rotating stock is reduced considerably. What is more, customers only have to pay when they take a tool out of the machine
Rent, lease or buy
Eboy can be rented, leased or bought. Rent is staggered according to sales. Invoicing for rent, reconditioning and tools occurs on a monthly basis. Collection and delivery services are included in the rent.
