Defective spindles stress ball bearings – and require quick action

Rapid intervention in the event of vibrations

Ball bearings are exposed to great forces – additional disturbances, such as vibrations due to faulty spindles, must be avoided. However, if these occur, transparent monitoring helps: The Nexeed Industrial Application System measures vibrations and deviations in order to effectively bypass time-consuming system faults. In the event of unexpected incidents, the system automatically notifies employees via push messages on their cell phones. Your benefits: Shorter downtimes through timely intervention - and substantial savings in maintenance work.

Checking the torque

Check torque values quickly and easily – anytime, anywhere

Centrally accessible data

Depending on the end product, screws and bolts and the associated torque values differ considerably – and they occur in large numbers that vary. The Nexeed Industrial Application System bundles the torques for all the nutrunners centrally in one location so that you do not have to search for a long time on the production line in the event of faulty connections. In this way, incorrect values can be identified and quickly corrected at any time.

Use case Product & Quality

High quality press work

High quality press work

Correctly control the force and position

High quality products thanks to full transparency – regarding production processes and possible errors

Monitor press processes centrally

Presses work quickly and with great force – so reliable processes and effective error management are all the more important. The Nexeed Industrial Application System supports both: The pressing forces and positions can be easily viewed in the tool. The Nexeed Industrial Application System also centrally bundles and visualizes messages about the individual process steps. This creates ideal conditions for short processing times – and ensures the quality of pressing processes and products for the long term.

Use case Intralogistics (Transport Management)

Optimal planning

Optimal planning

Neither over nor under capacities

The best possible planning of personnel and material requirements – this is not a contradiction!

Production and personnel in harmony

Production and personnel – both key indicators are subject to permanent fluctuations: Whether the production volume or the availability of personnel fluctuates is almost secondary. It is important that the current events are coordinated. Transport Management takes care of that: All actual transport requirements are automatically distributed to the available capacities and efficient tours are created.

Use case Intralogistics (Transport Management)

No more static routes

No more static routes

Efficient planning of milk runs

Thanks to Transport Management, static milk runs are a thing of the past.

Flexible milk run trains

Milk runs often have low utilization rates. Statically defined routes and unnecessary stops with very little material cost time and money. With Transport Management, both the number and the frequency of milk run trains can be reduced: The tour planning ensures optimum utilization by planning upcoming and new transport requirements in real time. In this way, orders can be planned and processed both flexibly and efficiently as required.

Use case Intralogistics (Transport Management)

Automated bookings

Automated bookings

Transport material easily by AGV

With Transport Management, AGVs become really intelligent – and this saves time and money.

AGVs become intelligent

AGVs do not automatically know where the material to be transported is available for collection and where exactly it has to go. Transport Management answers these questions. This application identifies the relevant supermarket and the exact source for collection. At the same time, a reservation is placed in the destination supermarket. Thanks to the status feedback from the AGVs, the in and out booking at the supermarket takes place automatically.

Use case Intralogistics (Transport Management)

Prioritization of transport requirements

Prioritization of transport requirements

The right material at the right time

Whoever arrives first delivers first? No, with Transport Management there is intelligent prioritization.

Automatic prioritization

When does which line need material most urgently? Neither employees nor milk runs can know that. If at all, this is only apparent to experienced logistics specialists. Transport Management automatically prioritizes the transport requirements and visualizes them for everyone involved. Based on the replenishment time, intelligent algorithms calculate the priority and distribute the transport requirements to the milk run tours according to the priority.

Use case Intralogistics (Transport Management)

Integration of new stations

Integration of new stations

Automated assignment

Thanks to Transport Management, new stations are no longer a stress factor.

Automatic integration of new stations

If there is a new line or a new station in a plant, then intralogistics is faced with enormous challenges: The new stations must be included in existing milk run routes. What would earlier have ended up in extremely long tables is now very easy with Transport Management: New stations can be easily created, assigned and incorporated into existing milk run tours via the user interface. The distribution of the transport requirements over tours and the efficient utilization of vehicles is calculated automatically. This saves a great deal of time for calculations and money for implementation.

Use case Intralogistics (Stock Management)

Transparency of stocks and inventory

Transparency of stocks and inventory

Synchronization of information and material flow

Knowing which material is where at any time – thanks to Stock Management

The Intelligent Supermarket

If the flow of information and material in internal logistics is not synchronized, then it quickly becomes confusing – and not only for logistics specialists but also for all those in production who depend on the fast delivery of required materials. Stock Management digitizes the flow of materials: Thanks to automatic in and out booking, everyone knows at all times which material is located where. This simplifies the search and makes taking inventory much faster and more transparent.

Use case Intralogistics (Stock Management)

Failure-free material bookings

Failure-free material bookings

Product quality assured

Stock Management ensures correct bookings – and thus consistently high quality

Reduced effort, low susceptibility to errors

It is well known that the error rate is highest for parts that look (almost) identical, since mix-ups can quickly occur. In this case, intralogistics is responsible for booking the material on the correct lane in the supermarket. This is often not easy with long rows of shelves and similar parts. Thanks to the Put-to-Light signal from Stock Management, every employee knows on which lane certain parts are to be provided – and is immediately alerted by a light signal in case of errors. This reduces both the failure rate and the manual search effort.

Use case Intralogistics (Stock Management)

Optimized space utilization

Optimized space utilization

Free lanes used optimally

With Stock Management, it's always 'free lane ahead'!

Dynamic Lane Management

A great deal of space is needed to provide material – especially if each lane is intended exclusively for a certain type of material. This is where Stock Management comes in: As soon as a lane becomes available in the supermarket, it is available to the other material numbers. The application assigns the new material number to the lane, and updates the information in the booking system when the material is placed on the lane. This saves otherwise unused space and ultimately cash.
