Fastenal experts review the current state of your supply chain.
✔IDENTIFY AND PRIORITIZE
Using technology and data, Fastenal makes recommendations to optimize your machining and delivery process.
✔IMPLEMENT AND OPTIMIZE
Once the supply chain is healthy, we look for opportunities to continuously improve, drive efficiencies, and eliminate waste.
When consulting with production shops about automated supply solutions, the most commonly cited goals are increased productivity, reduced downtime, and optimized cycle times. The FASTVend 10K drives this vision by making inventory immediately accessible to machinists and operators — 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Fastenal's Product Locator application features a UI that allows for complete supply chain visibility and searchability by location and/or product.
The combination of access and traceability delivers a range of benefits. For example, employees are no longer motivated to hoard expensive cutting tools, because they know products will always be available when needed. And with real-time visibility to tools used (including custom tooling assemblies), supervisors, managers, planners, and engineers are able to quickly discern changes in usage, avoiding emergencies and costly expedited shipments.
Fastenal's Tool Repair Centers provide the industry's most comprehensive capabilities under one roof. Our authorized and approved warranty centers reduce the need to track, separate and send tools, hoists and equipment direct to manufacturers. Repair technicians are factory trained and certified through independent governing bodies.
Our calibration and repair labs are A2LA accredited and handle 23,000 measuring devices from around the globe.
Factory-trained technicians use state-of-the-art welding and annealing equipment to achieve the highest quality weld possible. Each blade is inspected for straightness to provide a perfect blade, every time.
Using the latest CNCs and manual equipment, Fastenal's experienced machinists will maximize the life of your cutting tools by reconditioning, for a fraction of the cost of buying new product.
