Door & Window Market Magazine features GED equipment and technology in the October issue as they recap GlassBuild America 2018 events from Las Vegas. Below is an excerpt from the page 30 article “GlassBuild America 2018, A Win in Vegas.”
We found two companies adding wireless components and product identification systems to doors and windows that allow for automated tracking, including GED and Veka. GED’s new system, WinTrax Intelligent Logistics, utilizes a network of sensors and radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to allow door and window companies to track both window components and completed systems. After tags are applied and entered into the WinTrax software, the system tracks units through production via sensors located throughout manufacturing. At this year’s show, the company displayed phase one of its system, which keys in on the window frame production process, but officials tell DWM that it will return to the 2019 show with additional phases.
