The Ultimate Industrial Vending Machine!
The RoboCrib series is our most popular industrial vending machine. It can manage both secure issues and returns of items. It dispenses virtually any inventory item you have including very small, large, and delicate items you wouldn’t want dropped. It’s good for both fast and slow moving item types. It’s prefect for large amounts of SKUs. Best of all no individual repackaging is needed. The RoboCrib series can do all of the things a helix coil “candy bar” style machine can’t.

The RoboCrib VX500 has been designed to provide secure access to over 500 different items. Imagine this incredible capacity in a system that has only a 34”x39” footprint. The variety of available bin sizes makes managing both small and large items a reality (carbide inserts, drill bits, spray cans, tape, safety glasses, air tools, welding tips, solder, welding tanks and more!). RoboCrib can control access to products by item, employee or job. Further, the system has the capability to track “Lot Control” numbers, and serialized items.

Calibration control insures that no serialized item will be issued if it has fallen out of its authorized calibration cycle. AutoCrib software also provides for F.O.D. (Foreign Object Debris) control. Unlike other systems, RoboCrib is physically mobile and can be mounted on optional wheels. Making it perfectly suited to manage maintenance and repair parts throughout large areas like airline hangers, shipyards and large manufacturing plants.

How It Works:

1. Login - Employees access the RoboCrib VX500 by using their employee badge or by entering their employee number.

2. Select Item - Users then selects the item they want.

3. Dispense - The RoboCrib VX500 will automatically move the item into position and open the door.

Optional: A PIN can also be required as well as prompts to track overhead data like Department Number, Job Number, Customer Number, Tail Number, etc...

Heavy-duty caster wheels Attaching heavy-duty caster wheels makes your mobile crib physically mobile and easy to maneuver across level surfaces with swiveling action. Ideal for managing maintenance and repair parts throughout large areas like airline hangers, shipyards, large manufacturing plants, etc…

Frameless doors With the frameless doors option, the system can open multiple doors at the same time, allowing larger items to be dispensed vertically. This lets you dispense larger items impossible to vend in other traditional machines.

ScaleMate™ The ScaleMate™ option (with "parts cups") can dispense smaller items such as fasteners, while increasing control. The user issues a parts cup from the RoboCrib, they take the quantity of items needed, weigh the remaining items, and the ScaleMate™ tracks the number removed.

AutoLockers™ AutoLockers are fully automated lockers with a wide-range of sizes and custom configurations. You can attach AutoLockers to your RoboCrib and dispense larger items like oversized spares, tool boxes, eTools, calibration gages, power tools, bandsaw blades, laptops, and more! Even options for built-in power outlets and LAN connections are available! Dimensions and depths available to fit even the largest items like spare-parts for jumbo-jets or oversized vehicle and machine parts!
