Industrial vending solutions
AutoCrib® manufactures industrial vending solutions for dispensing industrial supplies. Industrial vending machines are ideally suited for inventory management programs that require employee accountability of consumable inventory and returnable durable items.
Control inventory consumption
Control product distribution by employee, department, and job. You can also manage employees and departments by spending.
Get advanced reporting on usage and spending including by department, job, machine, and employee. Schedule the automated delivery of reports by email. Quickly see your on-hand inventory levels and manage your inventory with the most accurate real-time information.
Industrial vending machines provide point-of-use access to supplies, allowing employees to spend more time on the job and less time at the storeroom. You can select who has access to which items in what quantities and at what times. Products are secured 24/7 to control usage and prevent theft.
AutoCrib® has developed a patented guaranteed delivery system that prevents items from becoming stuck in the device. VendVerify is a laser-based system that ensures that the selected products have been dispensed before decrementing inventory. If a product is not delivered, the machine will “jog” the motor incrementally until a successful vend so that inventory accuracy is assured and only one item is dispensed per issue.
Employees can issue items from the industrial vending machine with quick scan capability. A built-in barcode scanner makes issuing items “point-and-click” simple.
Capacity Up to 2100 Items | Up to 70SKUs (Standard 60SKUs)
The AutoCrib® RDS industrial vending machine can be optionally equipped for an additional 10SKUs (unique items). This allows you to dispense a greater variety of items in the machine — 16.7% more product capacity than other machines on the market. Large Indexable Inserts: 24-Coil, 60SKU = 1440 Capacity Large Indexable Inserts: 24-Coil, 70SKU = 1680 Capacity Small Index-able Inserts: 30-Coil, 60SKU = 1800 Capacity Small Index-able Inserts: 30-Coil, 70SKU = 2100 Capacity
The machine can be set up to automatically batch process purchase orders. This means you can prevent stock-outs and reduce your administrative processing costs.
The RDS TouchVend has an optional user-friendly touchscreen and a physical keyboard that expands the machine’s features and capabilities. This easy to use interface lets users search for products and get detailed information about items. Using the RDS TouchVend you can also add on an auxiliary machine to double the capacity of your system.
You can dispense multiple items in the same transaction.
Force use of regrinds
Regrinds can save up to 80% of your costs vs. new cutting tools, but they are often underused because operators use new tools without realizing there was a comparable regrind in stock. The force regrinds feature issues regrinds before new cutting tools, significantly reducing your inventory spend.

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.
Here are some of the benefits that we are seeing from the RoboCribs: Ease of issue. No cross contamination. Reorders are automatic. Visibility of parts and quantities.
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.
