Inventory management with small parts and fasteners is difficult and time-consuming. Automation of this task allows your people to focus on value-added activities.
The ScaleMate® dispenses by weight, preventing the many drawbacks of drawer-based systems. It can detect when someone attempts to put something in the bin in an effort to change the issue quantity by confirming that the weight is divisible by the per piece weight assigned to that bin. If not, it will report bin contamination to the system administrator.
ScaleMate® lets you track exactly what you have in your fastener or small part inventory, and exactly what the demands are for every item. This enables you to increase your inventory turns and reduce stock-outs. Dispensing exact amounts also prevents extra fasteners from being accidently dropped into assemblies.
The ScaleMate® system ensures every lot is physically compartmentalized. Users only have access to a single bin at a time, lot numbers are never commingled, and every transaction is recorded. You can review when an item was stocked, when it was issued, who it was issued to, what jobs it was issued for, and other information showing the entire flow of your inventory. This is extremely helpful because you can track where the defective lot went and contact those customers quickly and efficiently.
