Inventory Control

How It Works

Our Inventory Control System features organization for all tools as well as laser etching/serialization for identifying the assigned owner of each tool. Accompanying each toolset is an inventory control book for easy logging of tool inventory at the end of a job, shift, or week, creating unmatched efficiency.

Sonic Foam

  • With Sonic Foam, all tools are stored in shadowed CNC machined foam inlays. This system is designed to maximize your tool storage while staying organized.

Laser Etching

  • Serializing your tools to match an individual owner provides an additional level of personalization, accountability, and identification to keep track of YOUR tools.

Inventory Binder

  • Know where all your tools are at the end of the day and do it faster. With a control log for each toolset combined in a binder built for your specific set, you can now sign off on completed inventory.

Increase Efficiency

We performed an independent time study using a technician’s fixed-ops setup with a complete Sonic tool solution vs. a competitors solution using industry standard organizational methods.

By the numbers:

  • 78 % FASTER INVENTORY OF TOOLBOX

  • 80 % REDUCED MISPLACED TOOLS

  • 20 % FASTER RETRIEVAL AND RETURN

Sonic Foam

WHAT IS IT?

  • Sonic foam is built from an EVA material that’s durable, highly resistant to chemicals, and is precision machined for each tool’s location. Each tool has a screen-printed location marker making it easy to find each tool and return to the proper place.

WHO’S USING IT?

  • Organizations looking to increase positive tool control, FOD prevention, create lean manufacturing processes, as well as techs looking to work more efficiently. Sonic Foam is the go-to solution for operating lean tool storage.

Laser Etching

WHAT IS IT?

  • We use high powered fiber optic lasers to etch the metal creating a permanent marking on each tool. Adding this to your toolset provides accountability measures, and also adds an additional layer of efficiency for retrieval and return of tools.

WHO’S USING IT?

  • While highly adopted in the aviation and manufacturing industry, we offer this service to all customers. Our product is highly distributed in all industries, as it allows for an extra level of serialization to each toolset on the floor for identification.

Inventory Binder

WHAT IS IT?

Our inventory control binder is built to be the control log of the toolbox. Included with every complete toolbox and toolset, this logbook marks the location of every tool and gives you the Sonic part # associated. Featured in the front of every inventory control binder is an aluminum badge with QR code that can be affixed to your toolbox. Scanning this badge initiates the warranty and replacement process.


When you have a multiuse space, holding everyone accountable to put things back is important. You can have the most expensive tools, but if they get lost, what’s the point?
