SH-Tools GmbH is a startup-company, which deals with industrial & mechanical digitizing. Through more than 25 years experience in predictive maintenance the idea of the ToolBox 4.0 was born – a smart, economic and user-friendly tool to monitor and digitize units via APP and software as well as to reduce operating- and maintenance costs.



Find out more about maintenance and monitoring in Industry 4.0.

Condition Monitoring

Condition Monitoring » „Through reduction of unplanned downtimes and the production shortage involved, the productivity increases. Maintenance and repair costs reduce, run-times of machines extend and production quality increases.“

Condition Monitoring – within the industry 4.0 is not sufficient anymore. More and more companies combine Condition Monitoring with analyzing tools in order to have a foresighted maintenance. The advantages: less downtimes, less costs, higher planning reliability.

ToolBox 4.0

The free configurable ToolBox 4.0 is able to measure and process almost all physical quantities.

Machine monitoring

A paperless data transfer can take place in order to digitize the maintenance. An optional analysis software offers a transmission of data from the APP and also offers a fast machine data evaluation as well as graphic representation of trend evaluations. You also receive an automated e-mail alert if operational limits are exceeded or service intervals are due and therefore can almost exclude an avoidance of production bottlenecks.

Therefore an ideal utilization of your resources is ensured, a reduction of your operating and maintenance costs secured as well as an increase of your competitiveness is conceivable.


With our tools you have the advantages on your side. Here are some facts, which make a monitoring easier.

  • Optimum utilization of resources
  • Saving of individual machine data
  • Measurement of temperatures
  • Display of vibration data
  • Optional infrared camera (hot-spots)
  • Record of operating hours
  • Display of on/off cycle frequencies
  • Applicable for iOS & Android devices
  • Paperless data transfer

Digitized monitoring inspections

Digitized inspections can take place, which can be recorded with an APP on your smartphone or tablet via checklists.

The collected data is transferred via WLAN-connection into your secured cloud.


  • Alert via e-mail if operational limits are exceeded
  • Platform independent software
  • Machine monitoring via web user face
  • Complete monitoring of all units

Maintenance & service provider

A saving of the complete maintenance history with repair reports including photo documentation is possible.

Also all installation and dismantling details as well as balancing and alignment protocols can be deposited.
