Marietta, GA (PRWEB) March 29, 2011
The only proven solution for 100% positive tool control in FOD-critical environments, the CribMaster Complete RFID Tool Control System, will be on display at the Aviation Week MRO Americas Conference and Trade Show, April 12-14, with continuous live demos in booth #2002.
The CribMaster Complete RFID Tool Control System, implemented in many large aerospace manufacturers and MRO facilities, continues to be the leading technology in FOD and high accountability areas to effectively track tools. According to WinWare President, Larry Harper, “Aircraft maintenance professionals take FOD seriously and so do we. Seeking input from engineers, technicians, and aircraft mechanics, led us to design a complete unified system that not only provides the who-what-when-where critical data in tool tracking, but also ensures a greater level of confidence in monitoring tool movement by reducing the search time to locate a tool when one does go missing,” adds Harper.
By combining the CribMaster AccuDrawer, a high-quality RFID-controlled cabinet driven by the leading tool management software, with Last-Point-Read (LPR) monitors, and RFID scanners, the system monitors and tracks tool movement through choke-points in the facility. After the authorized mechanic has authenticated himself and removed the tool from the automated cabinet, the system provides real-time data such as who took it, when it was issued, and where it was used.
If tools are missing from the cabinet at any time, an “Items Out” icon prominently displays on the touch screen monitor. This makes for easy supervisor FOD checks on the plant floor or in the maintenance bay. Additionally, the robust software driving the cabinet automatically sends notifications to key personnel alerting them of critical situations.
Tools do get misplaced in an aircraft maintenance environment. When a tool does get misplaced, the major differentiator between a tool control system and the CribMaster Complete RFID Tool Control System is the ability to increase efficiency and reduce FOD risks by narrowing the search area to quickly locate the missing tool all with pin-point accuracy.
