Ubisense, Bosch Rexroth launch tool location, control solution for aerospace assembly lines

Ubisense Group plc (AIM: UBI) and Bosch Rexroth have joined forces to offer real-time tracking of tools and tightening operations, the companies said.

Developed specifically for aerospace assembly lines, the joint venture combines Bosch Rexroth´s Nexo Cordless Nutrunner and Ubisense´s Smart Factory solutions.

Ubisense´s readers detect the precise location of tagged Bosch Rexroth tools on the assembly lines, avoiding tools being lost or misplaced with the associated disruption and need to repurchase.
Ubisense´s Smart Factory gathers location data through its Real-Time Location System (RTLS), which includes hardware tags and sensors that connect via ultra-wideband radio signals to pinpoint the exact location and identity of assets in the manufacturing process.

Ubisense provides enterprise location intelligence solutions. Founded in 2002, Ubisense is headquartered in Cambridge, England, with operations in North America, France, Germany and Japan.
