TOOL CONTROL THAT PUTS YOU IN COMMAND
For technicians, lost tools can kill a productive workday with wasted time. That’s why Snap-on has kept technicians organized and productive since 1920. Now, over 100 years later, Snap-on offers the most advanced form of tool control in the industry: Level 5 Tool Control.
From seamlessly integrated access control to fully automated systems that automatically monitor who has which tools and where they’re working, Level 5 improves every aspect of tool management. And it works with your crew, never against them, to decrease downtime and improve productivity. That way everyone can concentrate on what matters most – the job at hand.
THE SNAP-ON LEVEL 5 ATC SYSTEM WORKS AT THE SPEED YOU DO
Open the box, get the tools, go to work. Other systems require additional steps to scan or log activity. We do it automatically so you don’t waste time, and you don’t need to depend on other steps to insure accurate results.
Snap-on Level 5 ATC system boxes are network-ready, either through Ethernet or wireless connection. 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.
No individual tool scanning required
No RFID tags to install or replace
No limitations on tool size—from 1/4” screw driver bit to as long as it fits in a drawer
Intuitive interface—easy-to-use touchscreen
POWERFUL ADMINISTRATIVE SOFTWARE
Level 5 ATC tool boxes are networked, either wirelessly or by Ethernet and managed by powerful, easy-to-use software. 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.
LET’S LOOK AT LEVEL 5
Select and organised for your crew’s distinct need for speed.
The more organised you are, the easier it is to get the job done right. Starting with a complete tool audit conducted by a Snap-on Solutioneer, we’ll help you determine the level of tool control requirements you need.
From roll cabinets to carts and can add a specialized tool set designed with your specific applications in mind. Implementing proper tool control can improve productivity, control inventory, reduce losses and standardize work.
No matter how big or small the application, Snap-on’s robust, flexible and scalable capabilities enable us to create a versatile range of kitting solutions – from stationary, mobile and transportable sets and much more.
We supply kits for everything from servicing copy machines, to maintaining and repairing tanks, helicopters, oil rigs and jumbo jets. Standard or custom, large or small – from our state of the art kitting centre, Snap-on does it all.
Proper organization allows your team to find what they are looking for, while keeping tools safe. Snap-on can provide a complete tool audit to help you determine the best tool storage product to meet your needs.
We even offer mobile solutions – allowing you to take your tools where you need them.
Sometimes you have to take your tools ‘on the road’ to get the job done. That doesn’t mean you have to throw your tools into a bag and throw organization out the window.
Our comprehensive offering of mobile tool solutions, including all-weather mobile tool chests and dog boxes, keep you mobile—and organised.
When your crew sees the tools they need, you’ll see output improve.
Finding the right tool for the job can take time. By increasing tool visibility, we decrease the time it takes for your technicians to find the tool they need.
We make it easier for missing tools to be noticed and returned. Our selection of high-visibility tool handles, custom color foam inserts, toolbox organizers, and pegboards don’t just raise the visibility of your tools, they raise the productivity of your team.
Visual Control Cabinets
The Snap-on® Visual Control Cabinet (VCC) gives you a full view of your tools for instant accountability and inventory management.
Available in 2 sizes, these cabinets can hold an extensive number of tools securely with keyed or keyless entry.
Customisation is available through the optional interior tool control functions such as foam inserts or peg boards. With an optional rolling cart or rolling cab, you can position the visual control cabinet close to the work so your technicians always have the right tools at the ready.
When things are easy to see, problems are easier to notice. Our Visual Control Cabinets are equipped with Makrolon AR Polycarbonate windows (the same material used in jet fighter cockpits) for “at-a-glance” tool management that doesn’t compromise security.
It also keeps the tool chest high, reducing the need to bend and stretch for tools, creating ergonomic working environment.
Oil & Gas – On offshore platforms, each level is given a unique colour of Teflon coated tools to help differentiate the tools of one level from the tools of another, ensuring the right tools are used for the job and maximizing productivity.
Aviation – Foreign Object Debris costs the aerospace industry millions of pounds a year in damage to equipment and personnel. Using a Visual Control Cabinet or Storage Cage makes it easy to eliminate FOD.
After maintenance, technicians can ensure that every tool is accounted for with a simple visual inspection.
3. ACCESS CONTROL
Keep your tools secure, organised and in the hands of the technicians who need them.
Our proprietary software manages tool storage unit access at the individual user level, allowing either stand-alone or networked control.
Access Control is all about security. That means giving you the access you need, in all the ways you need it, including granting access by time, user and date.
Our system automatically notes who opened the box, and for how long. It even records any unauthorized attempts to access the tool storage unit. And with keyless administrative access, you never have to worry about locking yourself out from a day’s work.
Alpha Box™ is a proven tool control solution that delivers access control with upgrade potential. Each box features keyless entry with employee badges for convenience, safety and security.
The CAD-developed tool control foam in each drawer provides superior organization and secure tool control management.
Keeping industry compliant means keeping your tools out of the wrong hands. By eliminating keys, which can be easily lost or stolen, Snap-on stops tool shrinkage and reduces the downtime caused by missing tools.
By increasing the accountability of your techs without impeding tool access for authorized users, we make staying compliant a snap.
4. ASSET MANAGEMENT
Keep track of your crew’s tools and where they use them, without losing track of time.
Take asset management to a whole new level of speed, control, accuracy and cost-effectiveness with True-CribTM and True-SiteTM software. Snap-on Level5 Tool Control System is smarter than ever.
With True-Crib software, comprehensive analysis, reporting and inventory tracking of your tool crib assets is simple, intuitive and easy to operate. True-Crib uses barcode scans and talking software, creating the most accurate way to check tools in and out.
True-Site software networks your Level 5 equipment together, including tool cribs and standalone tool storage units. True-Site reports inventory, tool usage, tool maintenance, location and more for greater visibility and ease of management.
Snap-on’s True-Crib software is simple, intuitive and easy to operate. It provides faster, more accurate check in and out of assets in your tool crib while providing comprehensive analysis, reporting and tracking for your tool crib.
Being able to accurately account for tools, equipment and consumables, at all times, is important in maintaining productivity and ensuring jobs are completed as scheduled.
True-Crib software acts as the brains behind tool control by monitoring tool movements from the time they’re checked out of a tool crib until they are returned.
All this, without the costs of lost tools and equipment. Saving time and money by not tracking down assets or filling out requests for equipment to be replaced. With our True-Crib software managing assets, you can focus on the task at hand.
Part of the Level 5 Tool Control System, True-Site software networks all your asset-managed sites together. This software offers customization to fit your organizations needs!
It provides monitoring and control for all tools using Automatic Tool Control (ATC) toolboxes and lockers, and connects those ATC assets to cribs using True-Crib.
Having one central platform monitoring tool cribs and ATC assets are a great way to increase an organization’s overall efficiency, while fully tracking and accounting for every tool in their inventory.
Streamline the management of your tools and equipment by creating maintenance checks, scheduling tool calibration, establishing permissions, downloading and generating reports and much more.
Subtract error from the equation. Multiply your productivity and minimize error automatically.
Automated Tool Control
With advanced digital imaging technology and proprietary software, Level 5 Automated Tool Control System® (ATC) scans the tool drawer and records which tools are removed and replaced in real time.
You know where everything is at all times without your techs being slowed down for a second. The system also knows when tools are broken, allowing you to replace or repair them right away.
It’s tool control that works hard to keep your techs working at their best.
As with any tool storage system, safety and security are top priorities. Since it’s completely automated, you can rely on our ATC to tell you when tools are unaccounted for, keeping the equipment you’re working on safe. Plus, our advanced design means worry-free operation.
Our ATC batteries have state-of-the art circuit protection to prevent accidental shorts or overheating.
