henchmanTRAK Electronic Tool Control Henchman Products

Automated Tool Control HenchmanTRAK



HenchmanTRAKTM is an innovative and effective Electronic Tool Control System for ensuring tools are never left on an aircraft - as well as improving productivity and saving money and time wasted searching for and replacing lost tools. It is therefore meeting the current requirements for tool accountability solutions in the Aerospace/Aviation industry.

The risk of FOD (Foreign Object Damage or Debris) is significantly minimised by giving complete accountability and automated record keeping of all tools against tail numbers and/or works order. No RFID tags or tool modifications are required for hand tools, allowing our Smart Toolbox to accept almost any tool, large or small. We can integrate with existing tools but more often we supply a turnkey solution fitted with the tools that meet your requirements. You can choose from a large range of internationally renown brands including Proto, Snap-On, Wiha, Stahlwille, Knipex or Armstrong, amongst many more. 

Cutting edge sensor technology is utilized to help you comply with regulations such as PART 145. Digitize your Aviation Tool Management and Automate your tool control to a whole new level.

The four HenchmanTRAK Tool Control Solutions

All data is stored on a cloud server and centrally viewable on the henchmanTRAK smartphone App or any desktop. Providing detailed monitoring and reporting on all tool movements and status across all locations is making replacement or service scheduling easy.



Unlike other Electronic Tool Control Systems that use scanning systems or require tool modifications, kabTRAKTM is fitted with a highly sensitive sensor system developed by and exclusively used by Henchman. 

  • No size restrictions: Track tools and consumables in almost any shape and size – down to a drill bit with a two milimeter diameter.
  • No light interferance: The sensors are not affected by bright light, making it possible to use the cabinet in any spot – indoors or outdoors.
  • No opening and closing drawers: Even with an open drawer, each movement of a tool is tracked and reported.
  • No wait time: Each movemennt of a tool is recorded instantly. Therefore you won't need to wait around for the cabinet to scan it's contents.
  • No re-calibration: Our sensors do not need to be re-calibrated. The cabinet is as functional on day one as it is 5, 10 or 15 years down the track. 



  • Fast and effortless: Sign tools in and out faster, mark broken/unservicable and replacement with the touch of a button
  • Safe: Instant check if your tool kit is complete (in compliance to Part 145/FOD regulations)
  • Transparent: Tools missing, calibration expired, or replacement needed – reports on screen, on the dashboard and on the app
  • Efficient: Save time and money wasted looking for misplaced tools - know instantly which tools are missing
  • Custom-build: Fully customizable and scalable to your requirements
