RFID Tool Control
AutoCrib®’s IntelliPort® is the most advanced RFID tracking portal available for inventory control. Using RFID tool control is a cost-effective way to manage the issue and return of a large number of tools, equipment, calibrated gauges, and MRO items in a tool crib.
The IntelliPort® automatically scans and tracks inventory in a manned or unmanned tool crib or stores area. This enables 24-7 availability and controls the insatiable consumption of inventory with 100% inventory visibility. This reduces inventory consumption spending by 20-50% on average at most industrial facilities and manufacturing plants.
The IntelliPort® RFID tool control system is ideal for managing calibrated gauges and serialized items. Individually track the number of issues and cycles for every item, each item can be tagged with a 100% unique RFID tag. The IntelliPort® also stops uncalibrated gauges from leaving; it physically prevents employees from taking uncalibrated items onto the factory floor.
Traditional data processes often require users slow down to capture required data typically by hand manually logging transactions or individually scanning barcodes one-by-one. Oftentimes resulting in missed steps, improperly filled information, and occasionally employees skipping the process altogether. The IntelliPort® eliminates this repetitive non-value adding labor by creating a seamless automated process that doesn’t involve additional steps. Employees can use their existing ID card to enter the tool crib, get the items they need, and checkout to leave. The IntelliPort® automatically scans all of the items at the same time and ensures no uncalibrated gauges or other items leave without authorization. Having doors on the outside also stops users from leaving before they are checked-out. Unlike other RFID systems the IntelliPort® ensures users actually follow the process.
RFID Vending Machine
Vending inventory using RFID tags is an effective way to manage a large variety of items even in an existing traditional tool crib or stores area. Inventory items are tagged with their own unique RFID tag and items are all automatically scanned and tracked for both issues and returns. Enabling 24-7 access and 100% inventory visibility while controlling inventory consumption by 20-50%.
The IntelliPort® RFID industrial vending machine acts as a secured door-way controlling access to and from the tool crib or stores area. Also, unlike other systems the IntelliPort® has the doors placed on the outside preventing users from leaving with uncalibrated gauges and preventing inventory shrinkage by ensuring users actually follow the check-out process.
Also, by using modern internationally recognized RFID tags that are Gen-2, Class 1, Passive RFID. RFID tags are significantly less expensive than other RFID solutions. RFID tags are about $0.15-$0.20 center per tag and even less when purchased in bulk! This makes it a cost-effective solution for controlling a large number of SKUs.
Unlike traditional inventory management that is slow, tedious, repetitive, labor intensive, and often times inaccurate. The IntelliPort® lets workers focus on value-added activity instead of managing inventory by seamlessly automating the process. Employees can enter using their existing ID card or use the keypad, get the items they need, and checkout to leave. All items are scanned automatically at the same time. All necessary overhead data (like job number, department, employee number, line number, etc…) is recorded automatically or prompted at checkout. By using an RFID vending machine you can rapidly and accurately control transactions and manage inventory.
You get detailed reports of your inventory, the status of all items, and all of the transactions made. The IntelliPort® turns all of that data you have been collecting into actionable information. This improves your inventory forecasting and demand planning ability. You can prevent dead and obsolete inventory on a daily basis instead of yearly. Stock-outs become a thing of the past because you actually have the real-world information of where your inventory levels are at. Your job costing and purchasing becomes more accurate because you can see the associated costs, and what was actually used for each type of job.
