Order triggering: Turning the bin
RFID technology has revolutionised procurement. As soon as a compartment of the 2-part bin is empty, the bin is turned and the order signal transferred to Keller & Kalmbach.


Sequence

(1) The goods are stored in a 2-part bin (consumable and reserve stock).
(2) The transponder fitted to the bin is pointed backwards into the rack.
(3) If the reserve stock is reached, the bin is turned and in the way brought into the ordering position.
(4) The transponder is now above a magnetic rail festened to the front of the rack and sends an ordering signal to the controller (max. range 50 m).
(5) The controller receives the signal and sends the order (after plausibility check) by GSM/GPRS to K&K.
(6) The goods are now picked out in the K&K Centre of Distribution, labelled specifically for the customer and sent.
(7) The bin is then filled locally by the customer.
