Nexeed Transparency Kit

The retrofit solution for more transparency in production lines

Nexeed Transparency Kit

The Nexeed Transparency Kit enables you to upgrade existing lines in a simple and efficient way for i4.0 without risks to machine operation. The solution delivers all necessary hardware and provides an intuitive web user interface with a digital representation of the line that displays information about part flow, bottlenecks, deviations from target, hourly count, and OEE. If sensors are already installed on the machine or data can be retrieved by other means, the Nexeed Transparency Kit can also be used. As issues are determined promptly by the solution, they can be fixed in a faster way leading to increases in productivity.

The retrofit solution for your individual needs

Unplanned downtime or delays in production can quickly become expensive. Often, those in charge are not able to identify the causes immediately or with precision, which is both time-consuming and nerve-wracking. For this reason, Bosch has developed the Nexeed Transparency Kit that quickly identifies issues in production lines and provides prompt information for quick reaction and resolution. This allows for a more lean and efficient production. The Nexeed Transparency Kit is a retrofit solution that enables the fast and convenient retrofitting of existing production lines. It utilizes sensors that are attached to the line, a Bosch Rexroth IoT Gateway for data processing, and a stand-alone Mini PC or virtual machine for interpreting the data and running the solution algorithm.

The sensors can be easily attached without causing machine downtime and the system can be configured easily without interfering with existing IT infrastructure. The user-friendly web interface is easily accessible via other computers in the network and provides increased transparency in the production line.

The solution is available "out of the box" and functions independently from other systems.

Heatmap

Web interface

The Heatmap solution utilizes new or existing sensors that are placed at each station. These sensors monitor when parts leave the stations. The Heatmap solution bundles this data for all the different machines in the production line and forms a Heatmap. Like a traffic map, the Heatmap provides information about possible bottlenecks or delays in production. When issues are determined by the solution, they are displayed promptly in the web interface. As a result, plant associates can respond to malfunctions faster and make better-informed decisions.

The Heatmap is available in live and historical mode. Therefore, it allows plant associates to see the current status of the line and review its status for previous days. Additionally, the web interface also delivers live and historical data of cycle time, overall equipment efficiency (OEE), and hourly count.

Tranperancy

Is your line suitable for the system?

Is your line suitable for the system?

If these three criteria apply to your production line, then you can use the Nexeed Transparency Kit:

Transperancy

  • The machines in your production line are connected or linked and workpiece carrier transport is largely automated in between machines.
  • There is a sequential flow of parts through the production line. This means that the parts always go through the machines in the same sequence, except for parallel stations.
  • Several products with different cycle times are not manufactured at the same time.
