Snap-on Reaffirms its Commitment to Aviation Technicians at the MRO Americas Convention; Demonstrates New Tool Control and Asset Management Solutions
Kenosha, Wis., April 27, 2021 – In key moments of aviation history, Snap-on was there. Whether it was servicing the Spirit of St. Louis in 1927, helping Howard Hughes’ historic around the world flight in 1938, assisting Apollo 11 land on the moon in 1969 or supporting NASA’s Ares 1 rocket in 2008 – technicians had Snap-on tools in their hands for these extraordinary achievements.
And as the industry emerges from what was undoubtedly one of the most challenging and difficult years ever imagined, we support technicians. Snap-on and its presence at the MRO Americas convention this week in Orlando is a testament of that.
For the past decade Snap-on has been a mainstay at the MRO Americas convention, both as an exhibitor and the presenting sponsor of the Aerospace Maintenance Competition, a global competition that attracts upwards of 90 maintenance teams in a friendly competition of skills to see who’s the best of the best in the world of aircraft maintenance. Although this year’s AMC has been cancelled due to COVID-19, the event expects to be back next year, bigger and better than ever – with Snap-on tools in their hands.
Keeping track of those tools is an area where Snap-on sets the pace for the industry to follow … and this year is no exception. Snap-on is debuting AutoCrib as part of its MRO Americas convention product lineup. AutoCrib is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of tool and asset control solutions. The company’s diverse product line, in combination with its flexible asset tracking software, designs customized systems that ensure real-time accountability, control and accuracy for aviation applications.
MRO Americas attendees visiting Snap-on’s booth No. 1636 can see AutoCrib’s Intelliport® Lite, which uses a RFID portal to scan and monitor tools and equipment, eliminating long lines at the tool crib. AutoCrib is also exhibiting its vending inventory management solutions that can be programmed to control items such as tools, MRO, PPE, eTools, fasteners, washers and more. AutoCrib was acquired by Snap-on Incorporated in September 2020.
Complementing AutoCrib technologies at MRO Americas is our proven Level 5 Tool Control System, including the Automated Tool Control (ATC) box and Visual Control Cabinets. These tool control solutions employ the five hallmarks of the Level 5 Tool Control System: visibility, organization, access control, asset management and automation, which are the foundation of a sound tool control system.
Snap-on has demonstrated its commitment to aviation technicians through the years with tools, equipment and solutions to help them get the job done safely and efficiently … and it is a commitment they can count on for years to come.
