STEIN LogisticConfiguration instead of programming
With STEIN LOGISTICS, STEIN takes over the control of the production processes and the communication with the work stations. The mature and evaluated control system has been in use on the market for more than 25 years and inspires the users with its simple operation and flexibility. Order management, product management and especially the timetable can be easily created and changed without SPS programming knowledge. Especially in times of Industry 4.0 the vertical integration with STEIN LOGISTICS is possible for many years (ERP/MES).
Efficient service package for your logistics
Benefit from the simple configuration
The STEIN LOGISTICS includes production relevant functions that are decisive for your success. The all-encompassing STEIN LOGISTICS can be applied to every type of production and is based on an innovative configuration of the individual modules such as
- Product Management
- Order Management
Successful STEIN users configure their line according to their individual needs. Evaluations in the phases of maintenance, commissioning and data transfer to superordinate systems are “daily work”.
As a result, STEIN controls are prepared for almost any change, conversion or expansion that may take place in a production process over the years. Thanks to our many years of experience in developing interfaces with mechanical engineering companies, our customers can rest assured that choosing STEIN is the right decision when it comes to controls as well as components.
Every transfer system we supply is commissioned for testing at STEIN and accepted by the customer on our premises. This means that every system is tested and delivered in working order.
Clever customers think ahead – with controls that are pre-pared for any eventuality and are extremely straightforward to operate.
From mixed production lot size 1 to pure series production, each product can be created and supplemented with additional parameters via the product management. Workflows can be attached to each product to include the individual route in case of an order. Product parameters can be easily output at the workstations – variants (e.g. connector type, colour). This gives you the necessary flexibility in the age of Industry 4.0 to map your product portfolio individually.
The heart of the control system is the Workflow. Here you can configure production processes without any programming knowledge. Depending on the result of the work station, the pallets with your product moves to the next desired station. The RFID technology in the STEIN system is used for unique identification of the workpiece pallets. Data are stored decentrally in the master. In addition to the classic “moving from station to station”, STEIN is also capable of process-oriented transport. Here, the station reports which process it is equipped for. In the process-oriented Workflow, the process e.g. winding wire thickness 2 is then started instead of the station.
The order control offers the user the ability to start, stop and delete jobs. These can be processed as single, parallel or endless orders. In addition to the classic order parameters, signal numbers can be defined or the number of the pallet per order can be assigned.
STEIN visualises the status of the individual conveyor controls simply and meaningfully via the diagnostics package. In addition, the status of each control is displayed on the control itself. In the event of service, the user can see what the status is like and effectively provide assistance with the help function.
The STEIN 300 has a fixed place in over 3,500 assembly halls. With a vast range of customers and in a wide variety of configurations. From a simple circuit right through to ERP connection or traceability functionality, each installation is custom-made for our customers using a standard toolkit.
STEIN promotes the trend towards electrification with the STEIN 300e, which is based on the STEIN 300. Instead of pneumatics, the stoppers, transfer units or centering devices are controlled via electric drives. This is particularly a big advantage for cleanroom applications. As a side benefit, your production is more environmentally friendly.
The STEIN 500 performs particularly heavy jobs. It transports heavy workpieces weighing up to 80 kg safely and effortlessly through the production process.The products can even overhang the edges. Despite the heavy parts, configuration and control of the system is still easy with tried-and-trusted STEIN LOGISTIC.
