Erdrich USA Case Study

Industrial PCs designed for mobile forklift applications

From concept to completion

Erdrich, a German-based automotive supplier with more than 50 years of experience, is a mid-sized family-owned company that manufacturers complex metal parts and subassemblies for the automotive industry.  Through their experience and commitment to innovation, Erdrich has become a leading global player in the metal stamping industry with a customer base that extends throughout Europe, the US, and Chine with companies like BMW, Mercedes, and Volkswagen.

After a week of testing the noax C12, the benefits became apparent.  According to Erdrich’s Logistics Coordinator Moises Sanchez, “Before noax, everything that I had to move, I had to write down.  Then, I had to find an available computer on the plant floor to enter data.  Normally this is not such a big deal, but when you have several people stopping to ask you questions, it can be time consuming.  With the noax PC, I can see where I need to go, scan and move parts, and then record the action in real-time…all from the seat of the cab.”
