Mobile computing for manufacturing

  • Transforming the way manufacturing works

    Professionals working in manufacturing have to deal with many challenging environments. Across many job functions there is a real demand for access to data and applications where that access has never previously been possible. That’s where Toughbook and Toughpad come into their own.

    Thanks to world-class connectivity, performance, portability and unrivalled durability, they are enabling professionals in the manufacturing sector to achieve far more in the field than ever before. Paperwork is being rendered unnecessary. Dusty, damp or outdoor working conditions are no longer a barrier to productivity. The need for multiple devices is no longer relevant.

    Quite simply, Toughbook and Toughpad devices are helping manufacturing businesses become more productive, more efficient and more profitable. What we’d like to show you now is how they can work with you. How they’re already helping other organizations similar to yours. And how they can help you overcome the main challenges you face.

  • Meeting the challenges of manufacturing

    What are the main barriers to efficiency and effectiveness for your mobile workers? And how could Toughbook and Toughpad help you overcome them?

    The provision of access to applications and data in real time, in the most challenging of situations

    Toughbook and Toughpad devices operate where other technology fails. So now your mobile staff can access the data and applications they need when they’re the faced with the most hostile of environments, in a digital and fully amendable format. The range of screen sizes and form factors means they can cope with the demands of mobile working in the manufacturing sector and the processing power they possess allows them to handle even the most complex technical documentation.

    The ability to ensure complete effectiveness, whatever the environment

    You might think that technology can’t perform everywhere your mobile teams do. Toughbook and Toughpad devices are ready to change your opinions. Military-grade connectivity, durability, reliability and performance mean they’re ready and willing to go wherever you need them to, maximising the productivity of each and every one of your staff.

  • The need for accurate asset management and logistical organisation

    Maintaining effective management of assets and logistics is always a major challenge in the manufacturing sector. Data and applications are held in distinct locations, accurate information at the point of manufacturing isn’t easy to access and maintaining a firm grip on who and what is where, is incredibly difficult.

    Not with Toughbook and Toughpad devices, however. Thanks to world-class connectivity, access to the myriad of data and systems can be maintained, no matter where your assets and staff are working. Exceptional durability and resistance to hostile situations means data and plans can be shared, wherever needed. Finally, functionality such as GPS, field cameras, HSPA and application-specific modules, means a Toughbook or Toughpad can perform a range of functions that usually demands several individual devices.

  • Reliability/Durability

    Even our smallest machines meet the challenges of field working. Take the 10.1” Toughpad FZ-G1 Windows 8 tablet. At 1,100 grams, the unit can withstand falls from 120cm. What’s more, some of our models are up to IP65 compliant for dust and moisture resistance.


    Toughbook computers have a newly designed battery and specially adapted power management system for up to 12-hour operation. Some even have dual hot-swap batteries for continuous use.


    The integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and optional HSPA+ module make it possible to access and transfer data even when working in challenging outdoor conditions.
