Modern Real-Time Locating: omlox Demonstrates Digital Twin of Your Factory

omlox will make Industry 4.0 a reality. The factory of tomorrow is intelligently networked. The vision: In smart factories, all production steps are digitally mapped (with a "digital twin") and linked to one another to facilitate data exchange. Industrial real-time locating is an important driving factor in achieving this goal. It already enables production processes to be tracked and controlled digitally. Even if not all machines and work steps can be integrated yet, the large quantity of location data ensures that processes are noticeably simpler.

omlox offers the first standard solution for industrial locating—making Industry 4.0 a reality. omlox is relevant to companies of all sizes that offer and use locating systems, especially those that work in a highly flexible production environment.

Benefits of locating technologies:

  • Are fully automated and paperless.
  • Offer a wide range of applications such as the tracking of orders, goods, transport vehicles, tools and the safe navigation of autonomous guided vehicles (AGV) and drones.
  • Enable process analysis and optimization.
  • Help reduce costs.
