Drive 5S in Your Toolroom with Custom Tool-Storage CabinetsJanuary 1, 2011
Tool-box manufacturer Versatility Tool Works, Alsip, IL, unveiled to visitors of Fabtech its custom-engineered cabinets for industrial tool storage—cabinets for storing press-brake and CNC punch-press tooling. We thought, “What a great concept for supporting lean-manufacturing and 5S initiatives in any contract metalforming plant.”
Heavy-duty construction allows for drawer capacities to 400 lb.; drawers and divider systems are custom-made to fit specific styles of tooling. And, the firm has its own patent-pending drawer-interlock system (cleverly named 1ataTime) for preventing cabinet tip-over—a nice safety feature.
