Pith’s customized tool and part stations are designed to support lean manufacturing processes and FOD control procedures for aerospace OEMs and MROs. Our stations enhance tool, equipment, and component accountability in the plant during all stages of production. Each consists of hardened shadow board foam within a metal, aluminum, or plastic box or tray. The foam has custom cutouts built to fit your specific needs and the size and configuration of any station.
