The last mile in your supply chain management system. The Robocrib VX500 is a robotic inventory tracking system for cutting tools, fasteners, shop supplies and PPE.
The ultimate industrial vending machine!
The RoboCrib® series is our most popular industrial vending machine for managing the secure issue and return of items. It accurately dispenses virtually any inventory item you have including very small, large, and delicate items you wouldn’t want to be dropped. It’s good for both fast and slow moving item types. It’s perfect for large numbers of SKUs. Best of all no individual repackaging is needed. The RoboCrib® series can do all of the things a helix coil-style machine can’t.
RoboCrib® VX500 stocks up to 628 items.
Requires less than 10 square feet of floor space.
Fast vend times — under 10 seconds for any item
Using a patented design consisting of a series of counter-rotating carousels all spinning simultaneously, the unit can dispense any item in less than 10 seconds.
Dispense virtually any inventory item from your RoboCrib®
The wide selection of available bin sizes lets you deliver a wide range of items, including very small, large or delicate items that are not easy to dispense or impossible to dispense from traditional tool vending machines.
Customized for you and easy-to-reconfigure
Every RoboCrib® is customized to fit your items, with door baffles that automatically adjust to fit each bin size perfectly and prohibit access to adjacent bins. When your storage needs change, this also makes it easy to reconfigure because you can easily change out the bins to different sizes. AutoCrib® also offers some great options like field-configurable bins that let you change-out bins with just a single screw.
Client-server or cloud-based .Net
You can host everything on your own secure internal network or use our cloud-based .Net platform online. Whether you are operating in a military-grade network environment or want the ease of an established secure infrastructure you can access online, our software has the flexibility you need.
Available with RoboCrib® VX500, VX1000, LX2000
Heavy-duty caster wheels
Attaching heavy-duty caster wheels with swiveling action makes your mobile crib easy to maneuver across level surfaces. This is ideal for managing maintenance and repair parts throughout large areas like airline hangars, shipyards, and manufacturing plants.
With the frameless doors option, the system can open multiple doors at the same time, allowing larger items to be dispensed vertically. This lets you dispense items impossible to vend in other traditional machines.
The ScaleMate® option (with "parts cups") can accurately dispense smaller items such as fasteners while increasing control. The user issues a parts cup from the RoboCrib®, they take the quantity of items needed, weigh the remaining items, and the ScaleMate® tracks the number removed.
The AutoLocker FX® is a fully automated locker system with a wide-range of sizes and custom configurations. You can attach an AutoLocker FX® to your RoboCrib® and dispense larger items like oversized spares, tool boxes, eTools, calibration gauges, power tools, bandsaw blades, and laptops. Options for built-in power outlets and LAN connections are available.

AutoCrib vending systems helped JetBlue Airways to implement new technology in our operation. This allowed us to track our assets and reduce touch points with a return on investment that was less than 12 months.
Since we have been involved with AutoCrib and using the software for 10 plus years we have seen a reduction in our total inventory. We now have the ability to see inventory that is slow moving and can adjust min/max to better fit our needs. Also, it has helped to consolidate our inventory. AutoCrib gives us the ability to track our costs better.
AutoCrib has integrated seamlessly into our high-tech, fast-paced operation at Flex-Cell Precision-a cutting-edge, precision CNC machine shop located in Lancaster, PA. Since first using our LX2000 four years ago, we have been able to rely on AutoCrib's accurate reporting to monitor, track and order tooling. Nuisance purchasing has become a thing of the past with established min and max inventory levels, monitored in conjunction with US Tool Group. Using a system like our AutoCrib has practically eliminated stock-outs, knowing we are always a couple of weeks ahead of the game. Data is generated & manipulated into various report formats by Operator, Job, Date, etc. for easy visibility of where our tooling is being distributed to. Practically maintenance free, there is little to no effort needed to keep our system operating perfectly. Make the change we did to help keep your operation running smoother and discover an AutoCrib system for yourself.
