For facility managers in the machining industry, proper storage of tools, equipment, and materials can be a daunting task.
Machining tools such as CNC milling machines make use of a variety of tools to create many different parts. When these tools are not in use it is important to properly store and organize them as they are expensive and important assets to any machining facility.
Machining Tools Require a Durable Storage Solution
Punching, bending, and other machining tools can be heavy and oddly shaped making them tough to organize and store efficiently. Over time, these items can cause wear-and-tear to not only themselves but also to the storage units they are placed in if proper storage solutions are not used. Basic cabinets and drawers can not properly accommodate these tools by themselves and can easily be damaged or broken from tools being thrown into them time and time again.
Luckily, Rousseau Metal offers high-quality storage drawers and cabinets under their Model-R solutions. These solutions are highly durable and withstand the wear-and-tear that commonly occurs with long-term storage.
Organization and Protection with Rousseau Machining Storage
Rousseau cabinets, shelving, and modular drawer systems are for any type of storage. That offers proper organization and protection to any item being stored making them excellent solutions for all-purpose storage.
However, when it comes to machining tool storage and extra addition from Rousseau’s product line can go a long way in maximizing storage potential.
Rousseau’s machine tool storage solutions are designed for maximum protection, while also offering optimal storage.
Machining Tool Racks
With a multi-level design, Rousseau’s tool rack offers improved support and stability, preventing tools from falling out even in an inclined position.
The tool rack has perforations for taper, straight, Sandvik, Capto, HSK, KM, and VDI tools. It is also available without perforations for a more generic style.
Bending Tool Storage
Bending tool storage provides maximum protection for punches and dies while also offering optimal and ergonomic storage. Rousseau’s bending tool storage is compatible with multiple tool styles including American, European, Wilson WT, Wila NS, and Trumpf.
Both vertical and horizontal draw storage options are available allowing you to maximize usable space while still maintaining a high level of storage efficiency for your various bending tools.
Whether you use a system where the tools are stored in a central store then allocated based on the daily production schedule, or each press brake has a toolbox containing the punches and dies needed
for specific tasks, a Rousseau solution that meets your needs.
Punching Tool Storage
Rousseau’s punching tool storage systems are specifically designed for type A, B, C, D, and E (thick turret) tools. Whether you need to store tools close to your machines or even for transport and maintenance (sharpening and lubrication) these storage solutions can work exceptionally well for the task.
Punching tool storage provides dividers, trays, and racks that allow you to appropriately store each tool and keep them from moving/shifting within the drawer system.
