In aerospace, they call it FOD: Foreign Object Damage. In the power generation industry they call it FME: Foreign Material Exclusion. At Snap-on, they call it history.
Snap-on Tools have Introduced a tool storage and control system engineered to automatically track individual tools by user without bar codes, scanners, RFID tags or other add-ons.
Level 5 ATC toolboxes are networked, either wirelessly or by Ethernet and managed by powerful, easy-to-use software.
That means you can review activity at all the Level 5 ATC boxes in your location from a central computer, you don't have to physically inspect each box.
The administrator can view all the boxes on the network, whether they are on or off-line, and the status of each box—including the number of tools issued, the active users, and all history.
System alerts—sending email or text messages to supervisors, for example—can be customized for lost or broken tools or calibration requirements.
Custom reports can be created on each tool’s frequency of use, inspection and calibration dates, and other specific location requirements.
