BMW Group has always been an undisputed pioneer at innovating the automotive industry. ProGlove has been implemented in BMW production and logistics plants all over Europe and the USA. The use cases include a 360 degree logistics and production scenario from picking, inbound logistics to sequencing.
ProGlove’s ergonomic design allows the workers to be hands-free throughout the entire process, saving up to 4 seconds per scan. At the same time, it ensures safety because the workers can process items with a tighter grip and greater care. Finally, ProGlove’s smart wearables provide for hassle-free and efficient scans for the workers on tugger trains or forklifts.
Within Volkswagen Group, ProGlove is being used at over 40 locations across four continents. This includes Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen OTLG. The ProGlove roll-out features applications in pre-assembly, end-assembly, intralogistics and warehousing.
At Volkswagen OTLG, one of the world’s largest logistics operations, ProGlove is implemented in three crucial zones. At one, the pool palette store, there are approximately a million picks a year. With ProGlove, Volkswagen OTLG can save between two and four seconds per pick. Thanks to the extended scan range of MARK 2, Volkswagen can now equip all potential hands-free scanning working stations with ProGlove. Future roll-outs are planned at the OTLG- and the Volkswagen plants in Wolfsburg and Braunschweig.
Audi is long known for its outstanding record of innovations. Innovations that often affect the entire automobile industry. In their quest to stay ahead of the competition, Audi partnered with ProGlove to equip their Completely Knocked Down (CKD) packing station in Ingolstadt with ProGlove’s wearable barcode scanners.
With more than half a million cars rolling off the assembly lines per year, Ingolstadt is Audi’s largest production plant. Also, cars for international shipment are prepared here.
In the CKD process, different parts are commissioned and packed in bigger cardboard boxes for shipments. The workers verify every part by scanning a barcode. This is crucial, since there must not be a wrong part in a shipment.
The advantage ProGlove brings to this process is, that the workers can move around freely, without having to pick up a barcode scanner every time they need to document their work. This enables them to handle the parts with greater flexibility while documenting them almost at the exact same time.
With a history dating back to 1895, ŠKODA has definitely one of the longest tradition in the automobile industry. Yet the the company has taken huge strides in terms of innovation – including the implementation of ProGlove to optimize the supply of items in ŠKODA Logistics. Additionally, ProGlove supports ŠKODA to facilitate and improve the logistics processes in their Mlada Boleslav and Kvasiny plants in the Czech Republic.
In this project, ProGlove’s barcode scanners help ŠKODA’s workers ensure that the required components are always used and that the production steps are correctly followed. Allowing the workers to work hands-free, renders the workflow more ergonomic. Moreover, the combination of ProGlove’s IoT applications with the pick-to-light system at ŠKODA allows the staging of the material for the assembly lines to become more efficient and erases virtually all errors.
“ProGlove proved itself to be the ideal solution for series production and has been used in our logistics ever since”
SEAT’s more than 14,000 employees are dedicated to distinguish the Spanish automobile maker through values such as vitality, design, and innovations.
SEAT relies on ProGlove’s smart wearables to ensure better work ergonomics, quality and traceability at its production venue at Martorell. Prior to the deployment of ProGlove’s intelligent gloves, workers had to wear a belt with bulky and discomfortable pistol scanners.
Now ProGlove’s lightweight barcode scanners provide workers with the privilege to work hands-free in the assembly lines where each brake booster needs to be scanned to ensure complete traceability. Combining the ergonomic design of MARK with its easy usability, helps workers save over 3 seconds per scan. A time saver that translates to more efficiency for both workers and the entire assembly process.
