Cabinet adds to Industry 4.0 environment

Wilson Tool preview edit_tmbAmong the product launches from Wilson Tool at Southern 2018 will be the Smart-X Storage 4.0, an addition to its Xtra Accessories range. The cabinet is an addition to an efficient Industry 4.0 manufacturing environment, says the company. Integrated tool management software enables the user to manage as well as store a tool inventory. Tools are stored securely with passcode entry, and can be ordered automatically from the tool management system.

Also to be launched at this year’s show is the QuickTap tapping tool for thick turret punching machines. Claimed to be the fastest and most reliable tapping tool on the market, it taps up to 200 holes per minute, and is made and serviced by the company. It can eliminate secondary threading applications and create fast and accurate threads.

The stand will also host the UK launch of Express Rail 2000 and Express Air press brake clamping systems. These can help to reduce set-up times and increase productivity with quick tool locking and automatic tool alignment.
