Tool control, also known as shadow foam & boards, are used to locate and control tools or instruments in critical environments. Shadow foams – foams custom cut by computer controlled (CNC) routing or water jet cutting allow the creation of cuts to the shape of your products within foam. Both CNC routing and water jet cutting provide means to cut and create any shape for your tools or equipment. Shadow boards – wall mountable boards, printed with the shape of your products, if requireproduct codes can also be applied. Mounting points can then be added to hold your tools or equipment in place. Both shadow foam and shadow boards provide instant visible control over your tools or equipment. Effective tool control is not only beneficial to safety but is also optimizes working efficiency by helping to prevent time and equipment losses.
