iBin®WP - Directly linked workstation supply

Digitalisation is now starting to change production processes and the supply of materials. In the factory of the future, these conditions will continue to change fundamentally and will link modern IT technologies to classic production processes. Flexibility, efficient processes, maximum supply security, a targeted focus on the core business — lean C-Parts management is now an essential factor in the manufacturing industry.

The new iBin®WP heralds the industrial revolution in C-Parts management: Industry 4.0 - people at the heart of a networked system environment.

The basis for this is the

Würth W-KLT®2.0 small load carrier,

The flexible W-KLT®Clip and

The iBin® intelligent camera module.

These combine to make the iBin®WP (Workplace) for a linked workstation. The W-KLT®Clip makes the Kanban bin mobile, so that the C-Parts are flexibly available at different locations in the manufacturing facility and can be used either at the storage location, on the production line, in assembly or at the workstation itself. The iBin® camera module automatically and autonomously sends stock level and repeat ordering data directly to the Würth Industrie Service ERP system from the bin, regardless of its location.

The aim is to link and automate C-Parts management and direct workstation supply. Going forward, the iBin®, as the most important component of iBin®WP and one of the first functioning cyber-physical systems, will be a core element of the system environment in industry and logistics. Regardless of whether the bin is located on the rack or on the production line, seamless supply of C-Parts is now guaranteed and automatic replenishment can occur at any time, regardless of the location.
