Aviation

Keep your crew’s eyes on the prize…and on their tools.

Whether you’re working on a commercial airliner or a military helicopter, you can rely on our Level 5 system to keep flying safe and keep your technicians productive. With our Level 5 Tool Control System, you get total control over your tools, reducing Foreign Object Damage (FOD) delays, losses, and damage. From organization, to advanced security, to automation, Level 5 minimizes error and keeps small oversights from turning into big problems. It’s so accurate some of our satisfied customers won’t clear a jet for takeoff until they get the “all clear” from their Level 5 system.

True-Crib

TAKE ASSET MANAGEMENT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF SPEED, CONTROL, ACCURACY AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS.

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.

True-Site

SOFTWARE TO NETWORK ALL OF YOUR ASSET-MANAGED TOOL SITES TOGETHER!

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.

Point of Use

You can position our Visual Control Cabinet close to the point of use so your technicians always have the right tools at the ready, letting them get the work done faster without having to make extra trips to the tool room. And with instant accountability and inventory management, you’ll know exactly which tool is where, and who saw it last.

 

And if your tools are on the move, you need access control that can be right there with them. Our battery powered LockView® boxes are ideal for environments where your tool storage units have to be mobile. It’s one security solution that can go anywhere your tool storage unit goes.

Compliance

Foreign Object Debris costs the aerospace industry millions of dollars 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.

 

Another option is to use our Automated Tool Control. It’s not just user friendly. It eliminates the potential for any human error during check-in, check-out, and tracking, giving it the highest levels of FOD compliance of any of our automated tool control systems.

Mobility

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 4 different styles of dog boxes, keep you mobile—and organized.
