Authorised access onlyWhen it comes to controlling access to individual assembly stations in production, there is hardly any way around an Electronic-Key-System. Ideally, it helps to maintain quality standards in production in addition to ensuring greater reliability.
According to Reiner Woltersdorf, he had his own personal epiphany while attending the SPS IPC Drives trade show at the end of 2011. He had the Electronic-Key-System EKS from Euchner demonstrated to him for the first time in Nuremberg. "It was exactly what I was looking for," he remembers. Woltersdorf is a maintenance planner in the field of electrical engineering at BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH, Nauen plant, and has spent years on developing solutions for smooth production. He now had the task of improving the reliability of the 200-metre-long assembly line.
Prior to the introduction of the EKS, the assembly stations at BSH were equipped with a simple access control system that involved password input on a touch panel. Operating it was relatively time-consuming and entailed the risk of double use of passwords and therefore the risk of not being able to retrace modifications and interventions in the processes. Once the company had initially equipped ten to twelve assembly stations with the EKS and subjected them to comprehensive testing, it soon became clear that these risks have now been eliminated.
