Seco has developed a compact point-of-use automated inventory control device for cutting tools. SupplyPod is part of the company’s Point point-of-use vending program that big inventory control of small metalworking tools, such as inserts, drill bits, taps, fuses and small hand tools.

With dimensions of 22 in. in height x 18 in. wide x 14” in. in diameter, the durable SupplyPod easily mounts to a desk, table, workbench or even a wall.

Available in three standard configurations, it dispenses either 80, 96 or 44 individual part numbers. Logging into the SupplyPod is simple via a touchscreen keypad, external keyboard, if attached, or badge reader. It manages item issuance and monitors tool usage with take/return, check-in/check-out and serialization functions. It can also force tool regrinds instead of dispensing new tools. Such capabilities help reduce tool spending by making employees more accountable for what they use.

The specially designed sloped compartments inside the device make it easy for employees to take and return the most delicate of tooling and instruments. Plus, optional dividers help eliminate tool damage as well as expand capacity up to 228 compartments in a single unit.

An exclusive rapid refill feature ensures fast and accurate tool replenishment without any repackaging requirements, thereby improving efficiency and eliminating stock shortages. The device also interfaces with modern ERP systems for continuously updating business environments.

Requiring only a power source and Internet connection, the SupplyPod is easy to implement into any work environment.

Seco has a full range of Point-of-Use product offerings, including the SmartDrawer, SupplyBay and SupplyLocker.

The SmartDrawer is a point-of-use inventory management system that is larger than the SupplyPod. It is extremely versatile and provides total control for single-item dispensing and returns.

Engineered for harsh environments, the SupplyBay is one of the most versatile, industrial-grade vending systems on the market, capable of handling high-volume throughput and providing trouble-free dispensing of a wide range of tools and supplies.

Designed for larger items, such as hand tools and pre-assembled cutters, the SupplyLocker manages takes and returns to and from the unit. The SupplyLocker works great as a standalone unit but also pairs with the SmartDrawer or SupplyBay for additional capabilities.
