Foam Inlays

Visual Tool Control (VTC) allows your engineers to instantly audit tools. They can quickly see with our foam inlays which tools are there, but more importantly, which tools are still to be returned.

Why is this important?

Our years of experience in the automotive, aviation and aerospace industry means we understand why FOD is important. A spanner left in a jet engine or an Allen key in a CNC machine, can be catastrophic.

Creating your own bespoke foam inlays

The inserts are precision cut on site from robust foam to fit your existing tools. You do not need to replace your existing tools or your storage units.

Easy. Simple. Personalised.

  • You let us know what colours you would like the foam inserts to be. We recommend two colours so that tools which have not been returned can be easily spotted.
  • We measure your tools either on site or on our premises. We also measure your existing storage units to ensure a snug fit. Both tools and storage can be provided if required, but we are happy to use what you already have.
  • We work with you to ensure that the foam insert layout works for you. Tools are arranged to match your real life requirements such as storage, frequency of use and handling.
