KINEXON’s ePaper solution combines high-precision UWB localization technology with smart process visualization. The ePaper can be placed on workpieces and load carriers without leaving any residue to track their entire value-added process. In addition, an integrated display automatically informs about production steps that have already been completed and those that are still pending. KINEXON ePaper solution is flexible and provides complete control and maximum flexibility for dynamic production.
Industry 4.0 not only promises the digitization of industrial production. It also requires companies to increasingly individualize products (up to batch size 1) and to integrate customers and business partners into their own processes.
In order to meet the challenges of a “Smart Factory 4.0”, the following three steps are essential. All three of these can be implemented with the KINEXON ePaper Tag:
Our KINEXON UWB sensor network allows you to track production goods with inch accuracy and in real-time, even in the most demanding and challenging production environments.
Relevant information can be transparently and reliably accessed
KINEXON ePaper Tag not only works as a UWB sensor. It also integrates a UWB Tag Display, which shows completed and pending production steps as well as other production-relevant information.
Live, location-based and dynamic
All information is updated fully automatically in real-time and location-related, regardless of whether the production process is kept 1:1 or dynamically adapted.
With our KINEXON ePaper solution, your employees receive reliable and real-time information on the production process directly on the workpiece. This added value has several advantages:
With the ePaper Tag, process-relevant information can be transmitted exactly when your employees need it. In addition, all manual steps for the documentation of production processes are avoided. At the same time, the ePaper Tag ensures that processes are handled cleanly and documented.
Thanks to the automatic real-time information on the UWB Display Tag, employees are always up-to-date. Even sudden changes in the production process are guaranteed to be reported. As a result, adjustment processes become obsolete, and more resources become available for value-adding tasks.
The complete documentation and communication of the production process not only makes it easier to prevent classic “frivolous errors” due to monotonous work steps. Instead, process errors can be identified more easily and quickly and subsequently eliminated or prevented in the future.
