AT INTRALOGISTICAITALIA 2018 FASTHINK PRESENTS SUCCESSFUL EXPERIENCES FOR LOGISTICS 4.0
FasThink, a leading company in the development of Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 applications dedicated to the logistics and manufacturing sector, will be present at Intra Logistica Italia (Stand H19 K20 – Hall 06) bringing concrete and successful experiences to give visitors a way to know the real advantages given by new technologies.
FasThink, thanks to its experience in the field of analysis, consulting and implementation of solutions to make logistics more efficient and integrated within company systems, has developed a series of applications based on RFID, NFC and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to increase automation and efficiency in logistics operations and creation of assembly kits. Solutions realized according to the Industry 4.0 perspective to promote digital transformation in manufacturing companies and beyond.
Pillars of FasThink’s offer are:
- The Pick-To-Light system in the wired version, and in the much more innovative and versatile wireless one, to guarantee flexibility in the management of stock references.
- The Connect industrial middleware to combine into a single company data system, production, logistics and assembly information.
Thanks to these two pillars, today FasThink has gained the position of supplier of large industrial groups in key sectors such as the automotive, food industry, and pharmaceutical industries.
Pick To Light System at Intralogistica Italia 2018
The Wireless Pick-To-Light solution is particularly suitable for e-commerce logistics applications where speed and precision in the material picking phases are the main requirements for maximum efficiency in picking processes.
Wireless Pick To Light consists of a Master antenna able to manage up to 150 illuminated push buttons available in different versions to better meet the needs of customer use and provide the correct information to operators.
Finally, thanks to the absence of cables, the system has considerable flexibility in use, because it is possible to change the layout of the Pick To Light buttons without the technical support of specialized installers.
CONNECT the Middleware for the integration of company data with those from logistic department
FasThink has developed the CONNECT middleware platform able to connect the WMS (Warehouse Management System), ERP (company resource planning), MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) programs of the leading global operators with the technologies used in logistics and manufacturing such as Pick To Light systems, Smart Sensors, RFID systems, NFC solutions as well as data collection through handheld or wearable readers and scanners.
Through CONNECT it is possible to create the product-location-button association in a very simple and rapid way, to monitor the system in real time through the diagnostic application and to enable data exchange with the management system according to operational needs.
With the CONNECT platform it is therefore possible to integrate Pick To Light systems and complementary peripherals such as Smart Badges and Electronic Labels (Electronic Shelf Label) and identification technologies such as RFID, Barcode Mobile terminal solutions and more.
