Snap-on Industrial Three Drawer Workstation Cart
The Speroni Intelligo tool management solution focuses on where everything happens: the shop floor.
The Stor-Loc CNC tool product provides shops with protection and security.

Tool management systems save your operators time, and your company money, by allowing them to quickly track tools anywhere in the plant, no more hunting down a missing tool holder. These systems and cabinets keep tools secure and maintain accuracy in the job costing process.


Snap-on Industrial (Kenosha, WI) offers a new 40″ Three-Drawer Workstation Cart that provides convenient mobility, a durable design, and generous storage of tools and equipment for the metal and fabricating industry. The workstation cart (KRSC4130) comes with three 35” wide drawers of varying depths for more storage capacity. The oversized bottom section offers security and strength with a lockable door and powerful 500-pound load capacity. The heavy-duty polymer worktop ensures toughness and longevity.

The workstation cart is built with vibration-absorbing casters that offer a more stable environment for tools and equipment. It is available in 13 colors with chrome or black trim. Options include an 18″ Mobile Power Tool Stand (KA18X5PC) to keep tools organized and ready to go; slotted Side Panel (KA1734) to hold tools such as hammers, chargers and power tools; Prybar Rack (KAPR17A) to hold prybars and handled tools, providing secure storage with a hinged and lockable lid.

The Most Advanced Solution in Tool Management

Combining a scalable software structure with local workstations is the most advanced solution available when it comes to tool management systems.

Speroni Intelligo’s tool management solution software links the entire tool library, active or inactive, with CAM, tool-crib management, purchasing, scheduling and ERP software. The Intelligo software focuses on where everything is happening: the shop floor. Using RFID or QR codes, Intelligo recognizes everything from cutters and holders to storage cabinets and carts as they travel the shop.

This level of traceability and real-time access to data reaches throughout a metalworking business and makes it more agile. Planning is made simpler, cash flow is controlled, communications are streamlined, and operators have what they need when they need it.
