The aims of this MOU
For many years, Thailand's manufacturing industry has been driven by the growth of its automotive sector, and has made great progress. The country's manufacturing industry is now looking toward its next stage, aiming to improve and upgrade its local productivity. In order to achieve this goal, the Ministry of Industry of Thailand has put forth its IoT promotional project, aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. As part of this project, B-EN-G, with its 17 years of results supporting Thailand's manufacturing industries, will help Thailand's small and medium-sized businesses become more competitive by providing technology to digitize the movements of workers at manufacturing site and utilized the data.

DIP focused on B-EN-G technology & mcframe MOTION
This system uses motion sensors installed on site to record the movements and posture of workers in 3D, and performs analyses that lead to improved efficiency and business practices. It provides real-time observation of movement and posture without the need for large-scale equipment, allowing for both quantitative analysis and objective evaluation. The system can be leveraged to improve worker training, discover abnormal operations, investigate more productive equipment layouts, and so on.
Furthermore, by using the 3D movement data in mock environments, it can be fitted together with 3D object data created with CAD to generate movement simulations, or 360-degree camera angles illustrating operational or inspection procedures for training purposes. These types of applications expand the breadth and depth of what is possible with visual data.

B-EN-G provides services and a group of products aimed at the "digitalization of manufacturing" for customers. We work toward sophistication and digitalization for our customers, in Thailand and everywhere else.
