Successful Production Tracking & Tracing at Magna BDW Technologies using Plant Historian PTT

RFID solution of iMes Solutions used by Magna BDW Technologies

One of the most important global automotive suppliers with 158,000 employees at 340 locations uses the RFID solution of iMes Solutions GmbH for tracking, tracing and documentation of the production routes in the casting plant. The constant expansion of the plant was increasingly becoming a bottleneck in the coordination and documentation of the transport routes from the furnace to the casting machine and required an automated solution.

A digital answer to the question

WHAT was processed WHEN, HOW and WHERE?

was required.

The RFID solution by iMes Solutions GmbH was able to convince with its answers and fulfil all of the customer's requirements. The system mounted on transport units (forklifts, trucks, electric lift trucks, etc.) records, documents and controls the removal and the path of the material through the entire production process. The recorded parameters such as date, time, weight, temperature and information on the production units are checked for plausibility - thus guaranteeing that the materials reach the production units intended for them. The transport systems are directly linked to the plant automation system. The work processes are prioritized. The drivers receive the orders from the work preparation directly on a terminal PC on the truck.

The use of the Production Tracking & Tracing Systems for Magna BDW Technolgies means:

  • Optimization of the transport processes for more efficient logistic processes
  • Optimal use of resources
  • Documentation and traceability of processes and transport paths in the casting plant
  • Quality assurance by adhering to the impeller times
