Optimize material provision

« SEKAN » e-Kanban system ensures the supply of materials to mounting and workstations. For this purpose, the E-Kanban shelf is equipped with a «SEKAN» control module for each roll flow rack. A high-performance sensor in the module continuously monitors the container fill level in the shelf. If the number of containers falls below a defined minimum, the system automatically reports the need for material replenishment to the ERP system. This reliably eliminates downtime due to a lack of material at the assembly station.

Only one sensor per flow rack channel is required for automatic replenishment control.

In contrast to a classic, card-based Kanban system, in which replenishment requests are made manually, the «SEKAN system» automatically monitors material replenishment.

Digital real-time level detection

Digital visualization of the E-Kanban process

The current container level is recorded in real time in the system. Using easy-to-use software, minimum levels, replenishment order quantities, replenishment request intervals, etc. can be easily configured and electronic replenishment requests generated.

Easy mounting

The E-Kanban control module is easy to mount by clipping it onto the profile rail.

Thanks to the proven KBS Snap-On technology, the SEKAN control module can be easily mounted and dismounted by clipping onto the base profile.
