AGV: remote "wake-up" call. Networks for flexible material flow

Automated guided vehicles are the talk of the town. And in many situations they are not replacing industrial trucks, but stationary conveyor systems. A wireless network can put vehicles "to sleep" and then "wake" them again as needed. This saves energy and increases flexibility. The wireless system can also assume other tasks.

Wireless rack communication: Optimised information flow in production and logistics

Flexible production and flexible intralogistics require flexible information flow. Here the limits of cabled communication are soon reached. Wireless networks are the better choice – for example eKanban systems. The company steute has developed a wireless network for such applications which meets intralogistics requirements.

The aim: to monitor and control material flow

AGV are transporting materials, eKanban shelves are replenishing small parts: material flow is becoming more flexible and more mobile. Which means that new information flow solutions are needed. Andreas Schenk, Product Manager Wireless at steute Technologies, has some ideas.

Open or proprietary? Wireless networks for industry

When selecting wireless networks for their industrial production, many factory planners favour open rather than proprietary networks. However: this apparent contradiction begins to blur, the closer one looks. A comparison of the two systems shows why.

Trend interview: More data transfer. 5G and co. optimise resources and material flow in the factory

Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 are changing the world of production. Shorter innovation cycles, a growing number of variants, lot size 1 and a more efficient use of production plants and resources are all forcing companies to use innovative technologies in their intralogistics. Of special significance in this context is the communication between the many sensors, actors and the IT infrastructure. In this interview about new trends, experts discuss the role played by wireless communication and its potential for creating new business models.
