Quickgrind rethinks tool management

Posted 27 January 2015 · Add Comment

Carbide cutting tool manufacturer, Quickgrind has chosen Southern Manufacturing 2015 as the stage is set to showcase its novel vending solution under a new name - the Quickgrind Tool Management System - at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2015, taking place at FIVE, Farnborough, 10-12 February 2015.

As visitors will discover, this system is offering tool users a unique, low-risk strategy that substantially reduces costs for businesses while avoiding headaches for managers.

Managing Director Ross Howell said: “Quickgrind is about much more than making and selling tools. It’s about innovative thinking which creates tooling solutions. We call it ‘total solution engineering’. The Quickgrind Tool Management System is a risk-free way of cutting costs and increasing productivity while assuring quality.”

Operating successfully for a number of customers both in the UK and overseas, the intelligent Tool Management System is based on secure, convenient, point-of-use vending machines which hold and dispense stocks – managed by Quickgrind – of every tool needed by the business.

The first key advantage of this system is that the right tool is always available, immediately, so jobs are never held up by time-consuming tool searches, visits to a manned store or, worse still, emergency reordering. The second is that there is no need to tie up company cash in tool stocks or to carry out the related – and often frustrating – forecasting, auditing and managing.

The dispensing machine contains intelligent software that monitors and reports on who is using what tools, and in what numbers. Each type of tool is always replenished ahead of being required and you do not pay for any tool until it is used. The tool prices are the same as you would pay if ordering from Quickgrind conventionally.

Ross added: “The Quickgrind team will be also be talking to potential customers about the high-quality remanufacturing process which has been in the news recently as a result of helping businesses improve their performance by halving tooling costs – without compromising on quality.”
