The manufacturing industry has a strong demand for digital solutions to facilitate flexible and transparent production, and to be able to offer agile responses to new customer requirements. A producer of customised fasteners based in North Rhine-Westphalia uses the Location Aware Software from INDUTRAX to enable it to locate and trace all orders on its shop floor. Find out more in the VDMA ProduktionNRW innovation magazine on the topic of „Innovations made in NRW – cooperation with start-ups“.
As a start-up based in North Rhine-Westphalia, INDUTRAX developed a Location Aware Software, which combines a range of technologies for location, identification and sensor systems, and is connected to company logistics and production control systems. It has been in productive use by a number of customers since late 2019.
Manufacturing companies lose a lot of time because the location of parts, products, orders, load carriers and tools, either within or outside the plant, is not transparently documented. In the worst case, this can mean that orders have to be manufactured again or tools procured with unnecessary regularity because they can’t be found quickly enough.
Businesses therefore want a system that will tell them where these items are. The available technological approaches range from selective recording of movements through to precise, real-time location systems. In reality, every use case poses different challenges for location technology.
A contract manufacturer of fasteners based in NRW is using the Location Aware Software from INDUTRAX to overcome these challenges.
INDUTRAX is a leading provider of Location Aware Software and solutions that enable the combination of various technologies for location, identification and sensing with enterprise logistics and production control systems. INDUTRAX has completed over 60 location deployment projects for medium size and enterprise industrial customers such as Volkswagen, Daimler and Magna Steyr.
