iSHELF®/iSHELF®flex: How intelligent a shelf in your Kanban system can be


The iSHELF®/iSHELF®flex system stands for an automatic ordering of your direct materials through an intelligent shelf. The shelf can be easily integrated into your existing Kanban shelves of Würth Industrie Service, so that the existing processes remain unchanged. Due to battery operation, no power connection is necessary, so that the shelf can be set up freely in production.

The handling during operation is very simple!

Your Kanban containers are automatically equipped with an RFID tag by Würth Industrie Service. As soon as you remove an empty bin from the Kanban shelf and place it on the intelligent shelf, an immediate data transfer is initiated. This triggers a repeat order via the merchandise management system of Würth Industrie Service and you receive the full bins in the next delivery cycle and filling rhythm.

Benefits and advantages of the intelligent RFID shelf

  • Complete automation of the ordering process
  • Maximum space saving, as no additional space is required
  • Lean warehouse and inventory management
  • Early response to fluctuations in demand, especially peaks in your ongoing production
  • Precise control of the flow of goods
  • No need for manual recording

Special features of the iSHELF®

  • Quick conversion without changing existing processes
  • Maximum flexibility thanks to different shelf sizes (iSHELF®flex)
  • Operation of multiple shelving bays with one shelf
