SmartBin consists of a combination of bins and specially developed weight sensors. SmartBin constantly checks current stock levels. When the minimum stock level is reached, the predefined order quantity is shipped automatically. Depending on the level of service, the parts are forwarded to your warehouse or directly to the point of use.
The latest invention makes logistics even more independent, flexible, and still fully automated. SmartBin flex can be placed wherever needed and doesn't even need a power connection to support lean manufacturing. The signals are transmitted wirelessly.
SmartBin flex can be installed on a work cell or directly at the assembly line. This eliminates waiting times and goods movements as the material is supplied directly to the point of use.
An ideal solution when assembly processes involve the integration of large objects or changing working environments. Mobile trolleys are equipped with SmartBin, wireless communication, and powered by a battery. You take along the C-parts to the point of use.
The classic version of SmartBin is used for Kanban pools.
It supports centralized and decentralized Kanban pools. SmartBin is able to manage small parts of a few grammes per bin or high volumes and large parts of up to 1,000 kg per palette.
