TOOLING TAKES POLE POSITION

Pull a Fast One: This machine shop runs two shifts just as hard as their vehicles on the racing circuits. They keep up with fast turnaround jobs by using a new automated tool management system that focuses on machining – not searching – for the necessary tools.

THE END OF CHAOS

Quiet Riot: Because inventory was out of control, this tool crib was the busiest area in the plant. No one knew where any tools were to manufacture scheduled assemblies. But now, after installing an integrated tool management system, the tool crib is the quietest area in the building.

FIT TO KILL

Survival Of The Fittest: This advanced machining operation kills their competition by integrating tool holders and shrink-fit technology into a single system that ensures machine accuracy and lengthens tool and spindle life.
