KSB, a leading international manufacturer of pumps and valves, increased productivity by 35% with Picavi smart glasses. KSB are sold in around 100 countries around the world. Based in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in south-west Germany, the company has its own research centers and production facilities in 16 countries. Alongside products for end customers, KSB also produces systems for the process and building services engineering sectors, as well as the wastewater, energy, and mining industries.
After a successful start, the Picavi smart glasses have become part of everyday working life in Grünstadt. KSB now plans to introduce the system in two more spare parts warehouses, so that staff there can also benefit from the advantages of pick-by-vision technology. Using the smart glasses in production logistics is an opportunity to make picking processes faster and more efficient asl well.
In mid-2017, KSB cooperated with Picavi to digitalize its spare parts logistics. At the company’s warehouse in Grünstadt, over 10,000 individual spare parts are now picked using smart glasses. This new system is faster and has significantly reduced error rates.
Picavi pick-by-vision technology is used in many companies around the world including, Neovia, DB Schenker, Klosterfrau, The Fiege Group, DocMorris, Geis Global Logistics, Log’S, Ecomal, Arvato, Krone, and Leifheit.
About Picavi’s Vision-as-a-Service (VaaS)
