RFID for Manufacturing And Industrial Processes

Asset availability and data collection in even the most challenging industrial processes.

RFID for Manufacturing enhances asset availability and data collection in even the most difficult industrial processes, including cataphoresis, cleaning, degreasing, galvanizing, sandblasting, composites, injection molding, die casting, machining, and 3D printing.

RFID tags for Manufacturing are being used beyond the supply chain to enable tracking parts and managing assets using rugged industrial RFID tags, readers, and sensors designed to gather the data that production systems require.

RFID has long been used in business operations to help with intralogistics inventory management and create greater transparency. While outdated production systems still rely on paperwork and spreadsheets, others have experimented with barcodes only to discover their limitations in terms of scalability and automation.

Building Tracking Systems For Industrial RFID

Rectangle-57 RFID for Manufacturing

High Temp

Survivability in extreme temperatures is critical. Rugged high-temp RFID tags surviving up to 250C are readily available. For anything above, the smart option is using tags that are easy to remove or replace.

Complexity

Industrial processes come with complex parameters: Paint shops for instance involve a varying mix of temperatures, immersions, jets, chemicals, pressure, shocks, and vibrations.

Disposable

Find the perfect balance between durable and disposable, e.g.: High-spec reusable tags on Paint Shop skids and conveyors, or disposable labels staying with each component throughout its manufacturing workflow.

Qualification

Qualifying new systems for industrial processes takes time. Using pre-qualified components and involving experienced partners will accelerate the testing phase.

Customization

Manufacturing relies on proprietary methods and equipment, making customization capabilities a requirement: Software, readers, tags form factors, mounting options, and materials.

Interoperable

RFID tracking systems are designed to give real-time data with the accuracy and dependability required for automation, just-in-time, and custom manufacturing.

The Challenges Of RFID Production Tracking

Paperwork, spreadsheets, and barcodes are holding back production systems when it comes to automation, scalability, and durability.

High-Temp

Starting in the 55-110C range for cooking, pressurization, and sterilization. Temperatures up to 160C are common for industrial distillation and kilning, while chemicals are in the 90-200C range.

Complexity

Paint Shop operations, for instance, involve Temperature cycling, Water immersion, Jets, Caustic chemicals, Pressure, Shocks, Vibrations...

Data

Manufacturing systems such as Automation, Just-In-Time, and their Software depend on accurate data, which calls for industry-grade reliability and performance.

Customization

Proprietary equipment and processes require solutions to be customizable, with the capacity to develop innovative form factors, materials, and tagging systems.

Qualification

Deployment in the field involves thorough testings and qualification.
