PIONEERING INDUSTRIAL VENDING
In 1994, we found that manufacturing companies struggled to account and control their indirect industrial supplies. Through this discovery, AutoCrib was born and began pioneering industrial vending. AutoCrib set out to find a way to help companies control and deliver the tools and supplies that workers needed, where they were needed.
After a year of engineering, the first tool vending machine was completed, consisting of a retrofitted vending machine, driven by a simple keypad and interfaced with the user and provided communication to a central personal computer with a basic inventory control system.
Since then, AutoCrib continues to be driven by innovation to deliver cutting edge industrial technology for inventory management year after year and continues to provide the most robust and reliable machines on the market, which have become the standard to which all industrial vending machines are judged.
UNDERSTANDING INDUSTRY CHALLENGES
No one can better understand the challenges of manufacturing and maintenance operations than those who have run a similar operation. Originating from a flagship industrial distributor, we understand inventory control challenges such as poor accountability and job costing to the inability to track who is taking what and the wasted time looking for items that an employee needs to do his job. AutoCrib, eliminates these challenges while addressing the specific needs and issues in any type of industry with its flexible and user friendly software systems.
From a local machine shop to a large multinational enterprise, AutoCrib can design and build a tailor-made inventory management or asset tracking system that addresses the unique needs and requirements of your business. Our industrial vending systems gives you real-time usage data and in many cases, can update your ERP system. This has helped our customers dramatically reduce their consumption of indirect supplies to as much as 40%.
Through this considerable experience we have found that one machine cannot solve everyone’s problems. That is why we offer a wide variety of different industrial machine solutions. AutoCrib’s product line includes a variety of handheld scanners, automated lockers, traditional coil/helix machines, a PPE specific dispensing machine, RFID systems, vertical storage machines, vision based tool cabinets as well as small and large robotic carousel systems with an optional counting scale attachment. You can pick and choose what options are right for your business needs and what will fit your budget, and we will build a system that meets your desires.
