CribMaster™ Automates Single Item Dispensing with the Latest Release of the Auger Vending Kit

Share Article

This innovative helix/coil component helps manufacturers reduce tooling costs by facilitating controlled issues of small single items required in production such as unpacked cutting tool inserts.

CribMaster, the global leader in providing solutions for managing indirect materials, has just released for immediate availability the auger vending kit. Powered by CribMaster software, this unique application of the auger used as a coil-style vending device in the ToolBox and X3 delivers precise dispensing of small items without requiring any special packaging. CribMaster will provide live demonstrations of the auger at IMTS, September 8-13 in Chicago, booth W-2528.

“In other industries where shaftless spiral augers play a key role in material handling, we believe that the spiral vending auger we’ve developed will transform industrial vending for both industrial distributors and manufacturers,” states Larry Harper, CribMaster president. “As industrial distributors are seeking ways to save time in the tedious repackaging of small items, our goal was to create a solution to eliminate these time-consuming tasks by utilizing the same shaftless spiral technology as a vending mechanism for a-la-carte dispensing. In a manufacturing work cell environment, auger dispensing will streamline operations while also greatly helping to reduce inventory levels. In addition to cutting tool inserts, it is ideal for storing and distributing other small items such as welding tips and apex bits.”

The patent pending CribMaster auger accessory kit is capable of dispensing up to 30 small items and can only be used as an accessory in the CribMaster ToolBox and X3 System.
