iSHELF®/iSHELF®flex RFID: How intelligent a shelf in your Kanban system can be


The iSHELF®/iSHELF®flex system stands for an automatic ordering of your direct materials through an intelligent shelf. The shelf can be easily integrated into your existing Kanban shelves of Würth Industri Norge, so that the existing processes remain unchanged. Due to battery operation, no power connection is necessary, so that the shelf can be set up freely in production.

The handling during operation is very simple!

Your Kanban containers are automatically equipped with an RFID tag by Würth Industri Norge. As soon as you remove an empty bin from the Kanban shelf and place it on the intelligent shelf, an immediate data transfer is initiated. This triggers a repeat order via the merchandise management system of Würth Industri Norge and you receive the full bins in the next delivery cycle and filling rhythm.
