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.

Trend interview: More data transfer. 5G and co. optimise resources and material flow in the factory

Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 are changing the world of production. Shorter innovation cycles, a growing number of variants, lot size 1 and a more efficient use of production plants and resources are all forcing companies to use innovative technologies in their intralogistics. Of special significance in this context is the communication between the many sensors, actors and the IT infrastructure. In this interview about new trends, experts discuss the role played by wireless communication and its potential for creating new business models.

eKanban: supplying shelves by remote control

In these times of flexible product manufacturing, processing, storage and consignment, the flow of information needs to be equally flexible. This impacts everything within the system, right down to the individual sensors and switches at field level. Especially for assembly and intralogistics applications, wireless networks are becoming increasingly popular, for example eKanban systems.

Efficient power consumption and additional flexibility for AGV applications

Flexible production and materials supply mean that communication must also be flexible, not to mention mobile. A wireless network caters to just this set of requirements, not only requiring minimal power, but also being simple to configure. The company dpm Daum & Partner is one of the first to use such a network. This automated guided vehicle (AGV) manufacturer uses wireless technology to facilitate automotive factories free of assembly lines. The same wireless network has also been successfully tried and tested for eKanban systems. Read on for more information.

Material flow for the Smart Factory

In "smart" production and intralogistics concepts, software and identification systems can be crucial to success. Manufacturers of such systems are currently profiting from this trend. At the same time, however, they are faced with the challenge – like their customers – of becoming a provider of smart solutions.
