The HK-MAT tool dispensing system

The HK-MAT is a tool dispensing system and can also be used as a consignment warehouse. It stocks all important tools or consumables needed by your production and consumption makes them available to your employees as a tool management system.

The tool machine monitors and logs each removal. If an article is only available in small quantities, the HK-MAT generates an automated reorder: this ensures that all of the important work resources are available around the clock.

Only authorised personnel will have access to the tool dispensing system. The logging and tracking of tool dispensing is automated and thus enables simplified tool management. Short ways and quick access increase productivity in your company.
