How can we help you manage your consumables?


It’s not a vending machine. Kennametal TooLBOSS™ is a secure, electronically locked tool storage cabinet with 24-hour tool control over high value items like carbide inserts, drills, and taps. It issues tools, returns tools, sends tools to re-work, supports EDI ordering, and has multi-vendor security.

What’s more, it’s easy to use. Users are given access permission, and you can only select tools you’re permitted to access. Each transaction is logged and time-stamped through the ToolBOSS inventory management software.

What's the benefit?

  • Slash on-hand tool inventory by nearly 50%
  • Reduce tool consumption up to 30%
  • Cut up to 90% of the overhead costs from manual inventory replenishment
  • Save up to 6% year over year from tool-use data • the rate of misplaced, lost or missing tools is drastically reduced
  • Machine downtime from unavailable tools is almost nonexistent

Let Kennametal help you get there. We offer a number of storage and tracking systems with features and benefits unlike other systems on the market.


The ToolBOSS™ Journeyman system gives you convenient drawer-level security to industry-standard tool cabinets. That means only the selected drawer is unlocked while the remaining drawers stay locked.

When coupled with a simplified version of the ToolBOSS™ software, you can easily store, search for, and track usage of tools. The easy-to-learn software system helps you manage rework and recycling, along with machine, job, and user.


If you’re tight on shop floor space but need to store a large number of different-sized items, our Roto-Point secure storage unit is the sensible choice.

Roto-Point needs no periodic maintenance, can operate as a stand-alone unit, and stores a wide range of high- and low-usage tools like inserts, toolholders, end mills, and MRO items. It can be scaled from 36 to 468 spaces in a single unit. ToolBOSS™ software controls security to a single compartment level and gives a complete history inventory usage from the unit. Expand Roto-Point to up to 10 units in a system, for up to 4,680 secure storage compartments.
