Implement Hassle Free Tool Changes

From conversations with many of our customers, I have found that there are two key problems encountered when working with tool change-outs:

Tool Identification: “How do I know I have the right tool in there for the right job at the right time?”
Cables & Connectors: “How do I remember every time to disconnect them before the tooling is removed? We spend thousands each year repairing dies with the cordsets torn out.”
