When customers peruse the automobile sales floor, the appliance store, or look online for the right piece of equipment, they give little thought to the individuals that manufacture these products or the tough environments where they work. The men and women that design and manufacture Xplore rugged tablets, however, are thinking of these exact people when designing rugged mobile computing devices.
The Manufacturing Workplace
Workers in manufacturing floor environments require more rugged computing power than ever before. Xplore rugged tablets are an ideal solution for manufacturing plant personnel. They are designed for workers that need:
- Computing devices that withstand the knocks and dust of manufacturing
- Reliable mobile technology that can handle plant maintenance, inspections, and quality control operations
- Optimized solutions to improve logistics
- Simple transitions from older computing systems with desktop and laptop computers to efficient rugged tablets
- Security and data privacy
Why Rugged Tablets for Manufacturing?
No matter how “careful” you are with technology, simply “being careful” on the floor of a manufacturing plant is not enough. Certain hazards are simply unavoidable.
The computing needs of a manufacturing plant go beyond what most jobs require. Mobile devices in manufacturing find their way into the hands of rugged individuals handling assembly, repair, and maintenance. Workers need these devices to work optimally both indoors and outdoors. The demands of the manufacturing environment require devices with resiliency, mobility, and ruggedness — the exact qualities Xplore rugged tablets possess.
An average consumer-grade mobile computer is not designed to handle the hazards of a manufacturing workplace or the vibrations generated by manufacturing equipment —forklifts, heavy machinery, power tools, for example. And the IT department doesn’t always like to enter the manufacturing area, so you need devices you can rely on.
Xplore Rugged Tablets: More Than Just Rugged
Avoiding manufacturing hazards is only part of the solution for providing durable computers in a rugged environment. You need devices that have constant access to real-time data and the ability to integrate with applications and networks.
Xplore rugged tablets for manufacturing function seamlessly with serial ports, USB connectors, RFID readers, barcode scanners, and all the specific hardware and software used in manufacturing. That means you can manage parts installation and inspection, report compliance, track inventory, mobilize workflow, and collect critical data.
Xplore Rugged Tablets for Automobile Manufacturing
With the increasing demand for quality, manufacturers, engineers, production managers, assembly line operators, and manufacturing inspectors want constant access to data, data that they can find in electronic user manuals, work orders, repair tickets, and shipping labels.
Xplore rugged computing tablets provide a paperless environment that helps the right people move fast, deliver real-time data, schedule parts delivery, and track quality.
Here’s what Xplore rugged tablets can help auto manufacturers do
- Review and assign daily job orders
- Assist the production line with real-time documentation and data retrieval
- Help the production line communicate throughout the plant
- Help with inspection, maintenance and repair tasks
- Connect to and track sophisticated machinery
- Document incidents
Xplore Rugged Tablets for Aviation/Aerospace Manufacturing
The aviation and aerospace industry produces the most sophisticated, automated and electronically controlled aircraft ever. You don’t manufacture such advanced airplanes and components without using the most advanced equipment. Xplore designs its rugged tablet technology for the most complex manufacturing jobs — an aircraft, for example.
With Xplore rugged mobile computing devices, you can transform the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your entire aviation and aerospace manufacturing operation with highly flexible mobile workflows. Here’s what Xplore rugged tablets can do.
- Streamline plant floor processes with paperless factories
- Accelerate information delivery to anywhere in the manufacturing line
- Manage scheduling
- Refine maintenance planning
- Improve workforce scheduling
