Certified expertise - First continuing education seminar for future PPE product specialists at Würth Industrie Service

Industry 4.0 – The human being in the center of a cross-linked world of systems
iBin®WP – direct and connected supply to the workstation
No industrial revolution happens without logistics – Digitalization has already started to change today's production flows and material supply. In the factory of the future, this environment will continue to fundamentally change and to link up modern IT technology with traditional production processes. Flexibility, efficient processes, maximum supply security, narrow focus on the core business – today, a lean C-Parts management has become an integral part of the manufacturing industry. In future, however, lean processes will not be enough and more individual solutions capable of networking with the overall system and with human beings will be sought. Industry 4.0 was the central subject at the LogiMAT 2014 trade show in Stuttgart and is likely to turn the industries of intralogistics, logistics and materials management upside down in the years to come.
The new iBin®WP heralds an industrial revolution in C-Parts management: Industry 4.0, where human beings are in the center of a cross-linked world of systems. Würth small-load carrier W-KLT®2.0, flexible W-KLT®Clip and the intelligent iBin® camera module make up the basis of this. Together, they stand for the iBin®WP (workplace) and make up a fully networked workstation.

iNFORMATIVE. iNNOVATIVE. iNTELLIGENT.
Bad Mergentheim/Main-Tauber-Kreis. On January, 16th 2013, Würth Industrie Service is the first C-Part partner to present a visual ordering system which will revolutionize the entire Materials Managements sector. It is now possible, for the first time, to transfer filling level, quantity and information of articles automatically to the inventory management system via integrated camera using RFID technology on a bin level.
