Located in the province of Turin, Webasto is a multinational company operating in 50 countries, offering innovative products for the automotive industry.
The company was looking for a system man down for their employees performing their duties along the production line, who were also able to be precisely located and above all timely.
The choice of devices to meet Webasto's requirements fell on Twig Protector PRO and Twig Beacon products.
The man-down device The Twig Protector PRO is small and compact, but above all it is suitable for operating close to the usually very noisy production line. Thanks to its vibration and enlarged loudspeakers, the Twig Protector PRO is able to overcome the background noise of the factory and thus make it easier to locate.
But that's not all: as the production where lone workers are employed is spread over a very large area and the organisation involves short shifts even on Saturdays, it was important for the customer to locate the man on the ground indoors safely and precisely even when the company is virtually deserted.
In order to meet this need, it was decided to install 3 devices Twig Beacon which are able to detect and register the presence of another device Twig when the latter is within its area of action.
Twig Beacon devices therefore allow, even in areas where GPS signal is absent, to locate the last area where the Twig device was registered when sending the man-down alarm.
By compartmentalising the production area of the factory in this way, it is easier to locate the person in danger, thus reducing the time needed to intervene and rescue the man on the ground.
