MPS 203 I4.0

From Our Partners at


The MPS® 203 I4.0 system is a small production line from the slightly adapted standard stations Distributing/Conveyor, Joining and Sorting. The entire system is networked and equipped with several RFID write/read heads.

The system produces orders which are generated in the MES system.

In the first station, a workpiece is separated and then written using an RFID sensor.

The subsequent Joining station reads this RFID tag, decides what is to happen with this workpiece based on the order and writes a result back.

In the Sorting station, the workpieces are distributed to three slides depending on the information saved on them.

MES/IoT/Big Data
These are the top topics of the digitization trend.
Production control, combining systems, modularity, data security and intelligent data processing are just a few important topics for the future, for efficient and individual manufacturing.

MES provides the following services:

  • System configuration
  • Product configuration/routing
  • Order entry and management
  • Order tracking
  • Order data storage
  • Web services for various user groups

Data acquisition and tracking
In this way, you are informed of the location and the status of the product at all times.

Existing MPS® stations can be extended using the RFID module in project work.

Controlling and operating
By breaking down the operation and control to individual stations, this makes them individual workstations for a project team. The basic operating functions and individual applications in IT technology are available.

Extending the process with additional stations like Storing and Packaging or Programming of µ controllers offers even more training content and allows them to be expanded to larger production plants for training purposes.
