V-LINE vending technology makes spare part or PPE supply easier than ever.
Our industrial vending machines are easy to use, and access is gained via personal ID cards (RFID), barcodes or individual PIN codes. The desired items are selected on a 10″ color display by material group, material picture and short description including size. After selection, the vending machine searches and opens the appropriate bin to receive the desired item.
After the bin is closed, the inventory is updated internally, and the removed items are recorded to previously defined cost centers, departments, orders, or persons. The consumption data is sent online to a SaveNetwork (VPN), where it is available for retrieval in various reports or can be sent directly to defined recipients via e-mail. Different reports, formats, and transmission protocols can be chosen.
The consumption information is also used for our supply concept. Thus, the V-LINE Refiller is permanently informed about consumption and the achievement of minimum stock levels, and refills the machines at the customer’s site independently at intervals. Customer consumption is billed to the customer on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
Furthermore, the system allows the issue and return of loaned articles, whereby the articles can only be released for issue after inspection by specialist personnel. This ensures the tracking of expensive parts as well as risk-free dispensing where only faultless equipment is used which increases work safety.
