Large Storage Capacity

The magazine not only supplies a greater variety of tools to a machine, but it allows operators to store redundant tools for lights-out production and fewer trips to the tool room.

Easy Replacement of Tools

Up to a five-tool loading station ties into the control system so operators can replace worn and damaged tools without interrupting scheduled magazine operations.

Live Tool Monitoring

All matrix magazines offer Toyoda’s live tool monitoring software. It works dynamically, automatically detecting broken and worn tools and bringing them to the unloading station. This system monitors the specifications and life of every tool in operation, making it easy for the operator to manage the inventory of tools in the machine.
