A complex supply chain demands an efficient solution. Through automation, companies can streamline procurement and other complex supply chain tasks, eliminating wait times while enhancing productivity across the board. Bossard SmartBin gives your company an effective solution for efficiently automating your supply chain.
At its heart, the Bossard SmartBin system consists of bins securely attached to specially designed weight sensors, all connected via a wireless uplink. With the aid of Bossard ARIMS software, SmartBin continuously monitors current stock levels. When stock levels reach a predefined minimum, SmartBin automatically orders the materials needed for successful replenishment – all without the need for human intervention.
Bossard offers several variations of SmartBin to best fit your processes, ranging from truly mobile solutions to applications for large part or high-volume needs:
SmartBin flex – SmartBin flex offers unparalleled versatility for a variety of assembly environments. No power connections are necessary, and each bin can be placed where it is needed most. Materials can be sent straight to the point of use, making excessive goods movement and lengthy wait times a thing of the past.
SmartBin mobile – The ideal solution for assembly environments involving fast-paced and constantly-changing work environments, as well as the integration of large objects. SmartBin mobile uses mobile trolleys outfitted with a wireless uplink and a battery for on-the-go power, enabling workers to transport materials directly to the point of use.
SmartBin classic – Ideal for both centralized and decentralized Kanban pools, SmartBin classic gives you maximized procurement flexibility, from small parts weighing as little as a few grams per bin to large parts weighing up to 1,000 kilograms per pallet.
