AutoID / RFID

Storage monitoring of containers

The storage monitoring system enables automated linking of load carrier and component. With help of sorting or validation criteria, the employee is supported in this process by various signalling systems. A typical scenario is loading containers of one type only. The first stored component determines the sort. All subsequent parts are then checked by the software.

With a terminal application, the entire process is presented in a way that is comprehensible to the employee. The middleware GRAIDWARE ® ensures that only process relevant signals are recorded. The storage monitoring can be linked to other processes in production or logistics.

Example: A certain filling quantity triggers a driving order for the forklift truck.

Third-party applications ( ERP, WMS, etc. ) can be connected if, for example, goods movements are to be posted or statistically recorded for quality assurance purposes.

Advantages of storage monitoring

  • Avoidance of incorrect storage by direct indication or signalling
  • High degree of automation - manual scanning of products etc. is no longer necessary


Examples of use

  • Production
  • Picking
  • Logistics


Functions
