Snap-on Industrial's Level 5 ATC tool control system offers advanced digital imaging capability in a tool storage unit
The automated Level 5 ATC tool control system from Snap-on Industrial is designed to advance tool management by ensuring both tool access and security. Snap-on Level 5 ATC starts with Snap-on Industrial’s HID proximity card keyless entry system. Each user’s assigned ID or key card is embedded with a user-specific code. As the tool storage unit is accessed to remove or return tools, ATC is engineered to use digital imaging technology to scan each tool in the drawer and determine its status. ATC's audio system announces tool issue and return. If tool status is questionable, the Snap-on Level 5 ATC can display the disputed tool transaction on the 7-inch LCD or it can be identified in the audit image at the administrator’s PC. User log data and time-date information is available for every transaction.
The Snap-on Level 5 ATC System offers an optional administrator’s software package that is used to add and delete users, assign various levels of user access and lock permissions, and track individual tool usage. The administrator's system can be synchronized to individual or multiple boxes, and can pull data and images from each selected tool box. The data logs and audit image files are available for inspection in the administrator’s program following synchronization with the box. Other features available in the administrator’s toolbox include creation of various reports, tools searches, alerts for broken tools and tools out for calibration, tool custody transfer and box set-up functions.
