Seco introduces automated inventory SupplyPod

Seco Tools Inc., Troy, Mich., introduced its new SupplyPod automated inventory control device with reporting and order management capabilities.

The point-of-use vending SupplyPod offers inventory control of small metalworking tools, such as inserts, drill bits, taps, fuses and small hand tools. The compact (22"x18"x14") SupplyPod mounts to a desk, table, workbench or wall.

Available in three standard configurations, the SupplyPod dispenses 80, 96 or 44 individual part numbers. A touchscreen keypad, external keyboard or badge reader can be used to log in to the SupplyPod. It manages item issuance and monitors tool usage with take and return, check-in and check-out and serialization functions. Also, it can also force tool regrinds instead of dispensing new tools.

The optional dividers help eliminate tool damage as well as expand capacity up to 228 compartments in a single SupplyPod.

The SupplyPod’s rapid refill feature ensures fast and accurate tool replenishment without any repackaging requirements, thereby improving efficiency and eliminating stock shortages, according to Seco. The SupplyPod also interfaces with modern ERP systems for continuously updating business environments.

According to the company, the SupplyPod helps reduce tool spending by making employees more accountable for what they use.

In addition to the SupplyPod, Seco has other point-of-use product offerings, including the SmartDrawer, SupplyBay and SupplyLocker.
