Why we should make our everyday life easier
with a tool management


Anyone who has ever dealt with the subject of workshop organization in joinery, carpentry or a furniture production knows the problem:

Tool tangle:
Which CNC tool or saw blade is currently in the sharpening service? Which circular saw blade has already run how many meters? And, where is the milling cutter that I do need for the customer project right now?

We soon realize that this problem can hardly be solved without clever resource and tool management because the complexity in the workshop and customer projects is increasing rapidly. The variety of tools is growing due to individual customer requirements.

From practical experience, the tapio team addressed the topic of digital tool management to simplify and optimize workshop organization. This has resulted in twinio - the mobile, digital twin of tools for tool management.



Digital tool management with twinio

With twinio, you can use the Internet browser on your PC, tablet, and smartphone to manage your tools, such as CNC tools, circular saw blades, milling cutters, digitally and on the move with just a few clicks.


  • Everything at a glance:
    twinio shows you all tools from different manufacturers at a glance. With the help of individual parameters, that you can define and edit yourself, twinio allows you to list tools and materials, e.g. by project, by running meters, by storage location, etc.

  • No more tiresome searches:
    In twinio, you create your own storage locations in the system. You decide whether the warehouse is on the ground floor, left-hand cupboard, 4th shelf compartment, or something completely different in the system. This allows you to organize the workshop in a highly individual way, tailored to your needs.

  • Scanning instead of typing:
    Thanks to the QR codes (or barcodes or data matrix codes) generated in twinio, you can easily and quickly identify your tools and materials. The scans can be carried out with the smartphones in no time at all - a clever tool management with your existing hardware!

  • Create tools:
    twinio is part of tapio's ecosystem. This means that tools and materials of integrated partners, such as LEUCO and AKE, can be created even faster, as the tool data is already available. Besides, twinio offers the possibility of creating tools from other manufacturers. You can also define and use parameters for this yourself.

Thus, clever tool management with twinio digitally maps your unique workshop, allowing you to manage your tools quickly and efficiently, both mobile and digitally.



How to get started in your production?

When we consider how much time is spent on this in work preparation and production and all too often wasted on finding the right tools, it quickly becomes clear that clever tool management solves real issues in carpentries.

For example, take a look at what happens in your workshop when the tool is delivered. How often are outdated lists maintained? Quite often nothing is noted or documented at all. The production employees are then at a disadvantage when the tool is sought or even determined that it must be reordered before production can continue. And last but not least, the motivation of the person who is now ordered to clean up the chaos of tools in the workshop is diminishing.




How can digital tools management be introduced in your team?

It is best to select a test area in your workshop, such as saw blades that come to the sharpening service, your CNC tool, or circular saw blades in general. Then register for a twinio test version for 30 days. To do so, register your company and create individual users on tapio. Then select the free twinio test license.

Now you can start directly and create up to 30 tools digitally. Include some of your colleagues in the test phase to see how you can improve your workshop organization. The mobile app for tool management will immediately show all information for your team: as a web app in the browser, mobile on the smartphone, laptop, or stationary PC.

Once you have started with a subarea in your workshop, such as CNC tools, you discuss the improvements and changes with the team. In the next step, you then expand the clever tool management with twinio to include other tools, such as circular saw blades.

In this way, you can test in small steps and without a large initial investment how twinio can improve your tool management digitally and mobile, quickly and easily. It could be the first step for your digital tool management as well as possible future changes towards digital production.

We look forward to your feedback on your new digital tool management!
