Broadmeadows, Melbourne manufacturer Integra TransForm has quietly launched the extraordinary K4.0 Kiosk (main picture and below) aimed at facilitating the industry 4.0 and digitisation journey of Australian manufacturers.
The kiosk has been turning up in factories across the country with the pictured version spotted and photographed by Australian Manufacturing Forum member Steve Zanon.
Zanon, director of Proactive Ageing told @AuManufacturing: “I saw this in a live factory setting last week.
“This workstation or kiosk has been created to facilitate manufacturers in achieving full digital connectivity across their operations, including sales and design.
“(It also) improves factory floor workflows with Industry 4.0 integration between machines.”
The workstation is built around Intel processors, with a 65 inch touchscreen display or alternative flip out keyboard and mouse.
The system provides machine connectivity and access, enabling visibility of machine statistics in one place.
It connects from shop floor to design office to check parts or query a design, and to customers to include them in the prototyping process.
The K4.0 Kiosk is said to smooth workflow management, streamline job flow through a factory and allow more accurate quoting estimates.
Integra TransForm is a subsidiary of Integra Systems and specialises in the design and manufacture of innovative, performance enhancing products.
Integra was founded in 1991 by Paul Hughes and is a 100 per cent Australian owned family business, specialising in industrial design, product design engineering and mechanical engineering.
