WinWare, Inc., the makers of CribMaster, is excited to have the opportunity to partner with Impinj, Inc. at the RFID Journal Live Conference and Exhibition held April 27-29 at the Disney Swan & Dolphin in Orlando, FL. The Accu-Drawer, one of the products in a full suite of inventory management solutions, will be located in the Impinj booth #501 for demonstrations.
The Accu-Drawer RFID Modular Drawer System is used to manage tooling, spare parts or any indirect material at point-of-use in FOD critical and tightly controlled environments.
"In our business, RFID is being utilized for a specific purpose, and it works," states Larry Harper, WinWare president, "the Accu-Drawer is an example of a RFID device we designed for a specific purpose." Driven by CribMaster software, the leading inventory management application for indirect materials in manufacturing and productive environments, the Accu-Drawer adds yet another inventory management option to an already extensive line of solutions. Harper adds, "The Accu-Drawer uses RFID in a way to solve compliance and FOD issues in tightly controlled environments. RFID technology has become an effective means of enhancing inventory management processes in many instances and with the Accu-Drawer we looked to enhance the processes associated with indirect material in these environments."
The Accu-Drawer consists of a heavy duty modular drawer cabinet internally equipped with four RFID Antennae and an electromagnetic door lock. When a user walks up to the Accu-Drawer, he or she must identify themselves prior to the drawer being released. They can do this by using a touch screen monitor located on the top of the cabinet or with a bar-code or proximity badge scan. Once the drawer is released, the user opens the door to find inventory sitting in a defined location. Either the inventory is tagged or the bin location is monitored by a patent pending RFID switch. The user removes the inventory and shuts the door. The inventory is automatically adjusted and is properly accounted. On the touch screen an "Items Out" icon appears to let you know that something is missing from the cabinet. If items are missing, you simply touch the "Items Out" logo on the touch screen and you are provided the information as to what is missing, who took it, when and where it is being used.
The CribMaster software that drives the Accu-Drawer provides all the functionality needed to manage any type of indirect material. From tooling, spare parts inventory, PPE, MRO, etc., CribMaster is a robust and flexible inventory management application that was built by supporting the processes associated with this type of inventory.
