The widespread adoption of lean processes and just-in-time practices have helped leading manufacturers to maintain a competitive edge in a dynamic and highly competitive trading world.

Manufacturing in factory

But there is another characteristic which defines modern manufacturing, and that’s the use of voice and data communications between production units, component stores, QC, engineering and materials handling and so on, to ensure a smooth efficient flow through all production stages.

However, a modern factory can be a difficult operating environment for two-way radio communications with noise from machinery and mechanical handling equipment, expanses of steel and concrete across large areas and the risk of accidental damage presenting real challenges.

Cost-effective migration from analogue to digital


Digital / Analogue Mixed ModeThe beauty of Kenwood digital two-way radio solutions is that the investment in new equipment when upgrading from analogue can be phased over time as all Kenwood digital radio devices feature automatic analogue/digital Mixed Mode operation (which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make) providing a predictable and cost effective path to full digital implementation.
