eKanban systems: remote replenishment

Flexible production and intralogistics requires an information flow which is also flexible. Cabled communication reaches its limits very quickly. Wireless networks are the ideal solution here, for example with eKanban systems such as those offered by companies like steute.

Remote control increases versatility - Wireless switches and sensors for industrial applications

Eliminating cables can be beneficial for many different switchgear applications, with some fields even demanding that electromechanical switches and sensors be cable-free. Depending on the requirements in question, the solution can also be a wireless network.

More flexibility with wireless communication - Increasing mobility for intralogistics

When tasks within the material flow are assumed by automated guided vehicle systems and mobile eKanban racks, communication has to be wireless. And it is crucial that integration of the wireless signals in the IT infrastructure of the user is seamless.

AGV: remote "wake-up" call. Networks for flexible material flow

Automated guided vehicles are the talk of the town. And in many situations they are not replacing industrial trucks, but stationary conveyor systems. A wireless network can put vehicles "to sleep" and then "wake" them again as needed. This saves energy and increases flexibility. The wireless system can also assume other tasks.

Wireless rack communication: Optimised information flow in production and logistics

Flexible production and flexible intralogistics require flexible information flow. Here the limits of cabled communication are soon reached. Wireless networks are the better choice – for example eKanban systems. The company steute has developed a wireless network for such applications which meets intralogistics requirements.

The aim: to monitor and control material flow

AGV are transporting materials, eKanban shelves are replenishing small parts: material flow is becoming more flexible and more mobile. Which means that new information flow solutions are needed. Andreas Schenk, Product Manager Wireless at steute Technologies, has some ideas.

Open or proprietary? Wireless networks for industry

When selecting wireless networks for their industrial production, many factory planners favour open rather than proprietary networks. However: this apparent contradiction begins to blur, the closer one looks. A comparison of the two systems shows why.

Car building by remote control. Wireless network for flexible serial production

The automotive industry is currently testing car production without production lines. Instead, automated guided vehicles (AGV) transport car bodies and even complete cars through the assembly area in all directions. A wireless network ensures that the AGV run smoothly and assumes additional tasks such as the control of eKanban systems.
