The Level 5 Tool Control System from Snap-on
As engineering managers within the oil and gas industry cope with relentless pressure to deliver improved productivity, often with fewer skilled hands and tighter budgets, the benefits of professional tool storage and management become stronger than ever.
Snap-on Industrial’s Level 5™ automated total asset management system brings order to any workplace, enabling engineers and technicians to know exactly where to find every tool they need, when they need it, saving time and easing stress.
How useful would it be if all your workshop’s valuable tools could be tracked from one central point? Snap-on Level 5 systems make that possible. It provides complete reports on everything managers or supervisors need to keep an eye on. They are even informed when a tool needs to be refilled or ordered.
And then there’s FOD. The threat of foreign object damage is a real and present danger both on and offshore. Using Snap-on Level 5 minimises the risk of human error, as automated tool control constantly tracks every tool and detects which tools have been removed or returned, ensuring greater protection against FOD.
Engineered to automatically track individual tools by user, without bar codes, scanners, RFID tags or other add-ons, the system works at the speed its users demand. Other systems require additional steps to scan or log activity. The Snap on system does this automatically so users don’t waste time and don’t have to depend on other steps to ensure accurate results.
Snap-on’s Level 5™ ATC boxes are network ready, using either Ethernet or wireless connection. They are also equipped with Keyless Access Control, giving users the ease of access they need but with security built in.
Says Richard Packham, Director UK & Europe for Snap-on Industrial: “Snap-on’s automated system takes tool management to an entirely new level. The ability to monitor several boxes from one central computer offers a huge time saving advantage.
