iBin® - the first intelligent bin
Wurth Industry of Canada is the first C-Parts supplier (in Canada) to introduce an optical ordering system that will revolutionize materials management for a long time to come. The quantity, number and ordering information for the item can be obtained at bin level via the built-in camera; this is then transmitted to the ERP system automatically.
Therefore, not only is it possible to ensure just-in-time delivery of small parts needed for production on a requirement-driven basis, but C-Parts can be supplied in real time using an image format.
