Shadow Tool Staging Systems are an alternative to the toolbox. Shadow systems were designed for tool use not tool storage so the design speeds the tool processing time for the mechanic. This means faster hand tool access and return times, electronic device (laptop/notebook) physical support and charging capabilities and simple tool inventory control, while also relieving the physical strain caused by using a large volume of tools.
Shadow does this by providing open physical and visual access to tools with the 5S lean maufacturing principles. Shadow is also supported on 8" casters for an unprecidented ability to easily move the tools with reduced physical strain to an exact point-of-work. This allows tools to be positioned for the best tool processing position.
Shadow helps keep work on schedule, track tool inventory to reduce tool loss expenses and instances of FOD and reduces the physical strain in an already physically demanding job. Shadow helps to keep the mechanics head in the game by reducing concerns about tracking tools and trying to access electronic data.
