Manufacturing

Food & Beverage | Chemical | Timber | Printing | Petroleum | Mineral | Metal | Machinery | Cement

Kaizen or continuous improvement of the processes surrounding the production of goods is the key driver for a manufacturing facility regardless of what it produces. Safety of workers is also top-of-mind and is challenging with multiple areas of concern. TR has solutions that not only enhance productivity but also provide an additional layer of safety to protect workers

Noise Cancellation
Radio messages need to be heard the first time, even in noisy environments. TR provides Motorola radios with the highest level of noise cancelling so that regardless of whether you are next to plant equipment or near loud machinery, your message will get through with clarity first time.

Rugged Design
Manufacturing environments and workers are tough on equipment. TR supplies Motorola radios that have an IP67 rating, meaning they’re dust and water resistant, and their battery life is up to 28 hours so they will continue to run throughout the whole working day.

All Call
With staff operating on different channels, it is vital that important messages, such as a blast, get through quickly and to everyone simultaneously. TR can provide radios with All Call functionality that brings all radio users onto the same message.

Immediate Equipment Replacements
Any downtime or loss of productivity is detrimental to sites. If you purchase a radio that becomes faulty or damaged and needs to be sent away to the manufacturer for repair, it may take 3- 4 weeks before it is returned. What are your options while it is being repaired?

1. Buy another unit at considerable cost?
2. A worker has no radio meaning they are less productive and are at greater safety risk of an incident?

TR offers immediate replacement of all our equipment, regardless of whether it’s faulty or damaged, reducing your downtime and ensuring that site safety and productivity are maintained.

Site Emergency Systems
If there is an incident, it is crucial that site management is notified immediately. TR provides site emergency systems that not only notify management but also can be activated to sound an alarm or provide announcements via a PA system, increasing evacuation efficiency.

Vehicle-Worker Safety
One of the most hazardous areas on any site is where workers operate around a plant or other small vehicles. TR provides an easy to deploy vehicle mounted system (SensorZone) that alerts the driver when a worker is in close proximity, while also alerting the worker of the hazard.

Shutdowns
During shutdowns, external contractors come onto site and are required to use suitable radio communications. TR can quickly provide radios to the mine or contractors to cover the project, which is more economical than purchasing or having contractors without radios.

Management Software
Real time data is becoming increasingly important to businesses. Having as much information as possible from one source, on one screen is what businesses need. TR provides management software which is an all-in-one solution with the following benefits:

  • Voice & Messaging Dispatch allows the control room operator to talk and message radio users through a PC, laptop, or tablet, removing bulky radios from work areas.
  • Voice Recording allows the control room operations and management to replay messages during important scenarios for review.
  • Private Calling allows control room operations to call one radio user without disrupting others.
  • GPS Tracking can track staff movement in real time.
  • Machine Alarm Monitoring & Job Ticketing allows the control operators to send a job ticket to the nearest maintenance worker (utilising GPS tracking) so that machines are bought back on line as quickly as possible.
  • Worker Alerts such as duress, lone worker, and man down can be sent directly to the control room for action. Utilising GPS tracking, they can find the worker and allocate emergency staff to their location quickly.
  • Exclusion Zones can be set up around the site and alerts can be sent to the control room if a radio user enters this area.
