WinWare Inc. announces three new sizes of the Accu-Drawer RFID Modular Drawer System used to manage tooling, spare parts or any indirect material at point-of-use in FOD critical and tightly controlled environments.

"The Accu-Drawer is proven and continues to be the leading technology to control tools in FOD environments and high accountability areas," states Larry Harper, WinWare president, "in addition to the original size Accu-Drawer, we now have three new sizes to fit the needs of any industrial environment, the Accu-Drawer Mini, the Accu-Drawer Mobile, and the Accu-Drawer Mini-Mobile." These RFID controlled devices are driven by CribMaster software, the leading inventory management application for indirect materials in manufacturing and other productive environments. With four different sizes now available in the Accu- Drawer product line, it adds more inventory management options to an already extensive line of solutions. Now with the variety of smaller sizes, the Accu-Drawer Mobile and the Accu-Drawer Mini-Mobile provide yet another benefit….mobility. This mobility allows the authorized user to place the point-of-use device with ease closer to the work station.

Just as in the original Accu-Drawer, all Accu-Drawers consist of a heavy duty modular drawer cabinet internally equipped with four RFID Antennae. 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 the 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 drawer. 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 all Accu-Drawers 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 to support the processes associated with this type of inventory.
