Low-cost RFID portal

The IntelliPort uses RFID tags to track your MRO and PPE items. Using a set of locking doors, the IntelliPort can secure everything behind it, which means you can manage very large items, like items on pallets, welding equipment, large tools and even conveyor belts. You can control an infinite number of items at an exceptionally low cost. This system will make your tool crib more organized and efficient. No more lost tools, parts or gauges.

Industrial vending machine with 100% inventory accuracy

RoboCrib industrial vending machines use rotating carousels to dispense items in less than seven seconds. Available in three sizes, this point-of-use dispensing system can issue and return 500, 1,000, or 2,000 small and large items as well as delicate items. The RoboCrib can vend almost anything, from tools and fasteners to mixing blades and welding tanks, making it AutoCrib’s most versatile machine.

Rapid glove and PPE dispensing machine

The EleVend is the world’s only glove and PPE dispensing machine that does not require repackaging. This machine works well with anything of consistent thickness that can be stacked, including gloves, welding sleeves, Tyvek suits, and safety glasses. Items are stored in their own mini-elevator tower that rises until the remaining inventory breaks the dual laser beams at the top of the elevator, automatically calculating how many items were taken. This machine will immediately cut glove consumption by 30%-50%.
