Detailed description

 

Long-term success

We are systematic in our approach: optimising processes, reducing costs, reinforcing competitive positions. This is our core business. Thanks to our logistical concepts, our expertise in fastening technology and our experience in over 200 customer projects every year, we can identify potential savings throughout the entire value-added chain.
We don’t just focus on purchase costs, as unilateral savings on the supplier side can result in follow-up costs in the long term. Product recalls, reworking costs or accidents can permanently damage a company’s image; deficient expertise at the supplier’s end must, therefore, be avoided at all costs. That is why, in all of our projects, we look at the total costs and astutely capitalise on existing potential for savings. State-of-the-art technologies play an important role here. The use of RFID technology allows extensive digitisation and automation of the procurement process. The processes are kept as simple as possible so that the label of the respective item just has to be thrown into the RFID Box to trigger procurement. We do the rest. To ensure your long-term success. And this is how we measure ourselves.

Product variants

We can supply ECOSIT® systems based on scanners or RFID technology.

We put in place the most appropriate solution, tailored in each case to our customers' products and requirements.

RFID Box

All the relevant data is saved on the RFID labels. As soon as stocks start getting low, the label is simply thrown into the RFID Box. The order is triggered and the procurement process begins. The 15“ touchscreen also allows access to the central database, can be used to control electronic shelf displays and provides fast help via the video hotline.

RFID Base

The antenna is built into a floor mat for RFID Base. The antenna reads all the empty bins which are standing on a pallet or in a collection box on the floor mat. It is possible to use as many floor mats as liked.

More

RFID Shelf

In this version the reader is located on the top shelf. The empty bins are collected there and the RFID labels are simultaneously read. This version is ideal if space is at a premium.

More

RFID glove

The universal RFID glove adds another layer of digitisation to the procurement process. The RFID label is automatically read out with every action, e.g. when an item is added, and synchronised with the central database. This provides effortless and complete tracking of the product from manufacture to the production line.

More

RFID Ceiling

All relevant information is stored on the RFID labels. Once a container is empty, it is simply placed in a collection box next to the shelf, above which an RFID antenna is mounted. The order is initiated and sent to us automatically.

More

ShelfScan

Our customers use a handheld scanner to scan their requirements. The scanned data is sent by modem direct to our enterprise resource planning system – quickly and easily.

More

SingleBin Basic

SingleBin is a one-bin Kanban system. There is one container for each item on the customer's shelf.

More

MultiBin Basic

MultiBin is a Kanban system with at least two containers for each item on the customer's shelf.

More

ECOBin

The ECOBin is a premium container that fits perfectly on every shelf thanks to its versatile access options. The sliding flap can be opened on any side. The fully rounded inner edges mean that even the tiniest items can be easily removed.

More

Electronic Shelf Displays

Electronic shelf displays allow flexible identification of the items on the shelf. Pick-by-signals mean that items searched for can be found and used more quickly.
