HIM – the ultimate ‘Virtual’ Guardian Angel


In an exciting new project, Trilogiq are partnering with Arkite to supply structures on which Arkite mount their HIM systems.

arkite - demo standThe Human Interface Mate (HIM), ‘Guardian Angel’ looks over the shoulder of the manufacturing operator, warning when an incorrect process is in operation. Intervening and alerting in real time when a mistake is made, or a step is missed, then guiding the operator back to the standardised task. The Human Interface Mate eliminates poor quality workmanship, saving time and money and increasing production efficiency.

The Arkite company are creators and suppliers of light and projection systems for picking and production. Established by Ives De Saeger and Johan Smeyers, the founders, both consultants in the past, have extensive experience and many contacts throughout the engineering industry.

Trilogiq and Arkite are a perfect match for the lean digital workplace, jointly providing a lean solution to support fault-free processes and verifying in real-time ‘standardized tasks’ on product variable workstations.

Innovative object recognition technology makes HIM ideal for assembly and quality control. HIM is contactless and works on 3D sensor technology with smart software, reducing control operations and creating two way information sharing with the rest of the factory or plant.

Increasing product variety and smaller run requirements mean that companies need flexible and versatile workstations to both meet the needs of their customers and make the best use of available workspace.

The Trilogiq modular system has the flexibility to build workstations quickly with the versatility to deal with different tasks.  Arkite’s HIM digital guardian angel integrates with the workstations to provide task verification in real-time and navigate operators through operational procedures one by one.

Why automate when autonomy is a real prospect for the future?


“We are delighted with the opportunity to partner with Arkite and truly believe that they will open doors not only for us, but for the companies they supply. They have a bright future and we are looking forward to working on innovative projects and partnering with them at events.”

Valeria Scott, Sales Director at Trilogiq Benelux commented.

On April 24th we joined forces in the event; Met ‘lean’ op weg naar de factory of the future. (‘Lean’ on our way to the factory of the future). Open to members and non-members, the event was held in Antwerp and featured speakers on LEAN and Lean Principles.

Over 100 participants from production, lean and logistic management attended this year.  The Trilogiq/Arkite solution pictured above was on show at the event.

Two further exhibitions are planned with Arkite this year:

  • Logistica in the Netherlands (November)
  • Transport and Logistics in Belgium (October)

The Human Interface Mate has already been installed at CNH Industrial ( FIAT Group). See the video.
