Using AI and IoT to create the future-proofed autonomous factory

Icon solutions1

Giving you a Smart Manufacturing Platform...

A single, cloud-based, AI-powered platform that allows you to rapidly connect, manage and analyse machines, labour and processes, using ThingTrax’s wireless plug-and-play devices and sensors.

Icon solutions2

...integrated with Smart Vision System

Incorporate intelligent image processing, with leading AI analysis, to detect, locate and track workers, products and production in complex environments. All using robust cameras with straight forward set up, meaning you benefit on day one.

Connected Machines

It begins with Connected Machines. ThingTrax’s devices, based on Zigbee, give you the ability to monitor machine performance and productivity in real-time.

Capture data from across your facilities (no matter where they are), enable predictive maintenance, analyse energy usage and increase overall efficiency through smart job planning.

Connected Workers

Once your machines are smart, you can digitalise your workforce. Build an operator skills matrix, measure overall labour efficiency throughlocation and cost monitoring, map and analyse worker routes across the factory. All of it delivered by the ThingTrax Smart Vision System, using plug-and-play cameras and our AI platform to capture and assess data.

Connected Machines and Connected Workers are the first steps in creating the autonomous, smart factory. Once you have established that foundation, you can deploy

Real-Time Quality Management

ThingTrax’s intelligent cameras and AI algorithms will enable you to analyse product quality and monitor for defects, wastage and scrap in real-time.

Perform root-cause analysis on defect trends to identify issues, while at the same time set alerts to be notified when scrap or wastage ratios exceed agreed tolerances within your production lines.

Autonomous Shift Management

Bringing together your Connected Machines, Connected Workers and Real-Time Quality Monitoring will enable you to automatically allocate tasks to staff, based on their skills and the requirements of your facilities at that time.

The predefined skills matrix assigns the right employee to the appropriate role, while Smart Vision System alerts you to workers undertaking tasks without the correct training. Move from reactive or legacy based shifts to a predictive, labour-as-required, rota, increasing employee efficiency and productivity.

Autonomous Guided Vehicles

Transform your factory with fully autonomous, AI-driven guided vehicles. With a 500kg payload, move scrap, unprocessed and finished materials in a mix of environments, allowing you to deploy employees on other, more valuable activities.

Using the ThingTrax Smart Manufacturing Platform, these vehicles, completely managed and serviced by ThingTrax, know your environments, and automatically route and re-route to avoid obstacles, including workers and other AGV.

What you get with ThingTrax’s Smart Manufacturing Platform

Devices

Devices and sensors to capture anything from anywhere across your facility

Our plug-and-play sensors attach to all your machines, capturing data from production, processes, assembly lines, work stations and operator clothing to start you on the journey to creating a smart, autonomous factory.

Increase visibility of your machinery
Gather real-time insights from your processes
Global View

Have a global view of your operations

Through the Smart Manufacturing Platform, you’ll have a real-time view of all your plants, facilities and factories, as well as their processes and production lines, wherever they are in the world. Benchmark processes, equipment and other critical data to set key performance indicators, identify faults and highlight areas for improvement.

Improved view of all your factories and their performance
Identify trends and analyse patterns
Visibility

Visibility and analytics across the plant

With the ThingTrax Smart Manufacturing Platform, you can plan and test how you deploy and alter your machinery through purpose-built digital twins. This gives you a deeper layer of actionable insight so that you can see how your plans will deliver results, enabling you to optimise and drive efficiency from day one

Optimise machine performance
Drive efficiency immediately
Energy

Energy management

By using ThingTrax, you can start reducing your energy requirements straight away, helping you to cut costs and create a more sustainable organisation. With built-in energy monitoring, you will be able to see where demands are, what is causing the consumption and take steps accordingly

Reduce energy consumption
