C-parts management – fast, flexible and fully automatic

schnell, flexibel und vollautomatisch Bossard SmartBin is an intelligent logistics system which monitors stock with total reliability and automatically ensures stock replenishment. An online system transmits the data to the Bossard server, and this – if necessary – triggers an order. SmartBin ensures quick and easy availability of C-parts while production is running.
Thanks to SmartBin, the supply cycle is simplified and accelerated, and it runs more reliably and smoothly, thus substantially reducing your costs of production.

The innovative logistics system is an amalgam of specially-developed weight sensors and normal containers. The SmartBin sensors make a daily record of the stocks and pass on the weight data directly. As soon as a specified minimum stock level is reached, a predetermined quantity of parts will be delivered as replenishment.
