When it needed to boost engine tracking and visibility through final testing for quality assurance and safety, this large heavy construction equipment manufacturer deployed a UHF RFID system and saw a 50 percent return on investment.
RFID System SIMATIC RF600 Meets the Cloud: Capturing field-level data of moving objects – feeder stocks, containers, tools, work-in-progress, and finished goods – in production and supply chains is core to further unlocking the benefits of digitalization for manufacturing and logistics industries.
This paper explains the next generation of RFID as represented by the newest Siemens SIMATIC RF600 technology with built-in OPC UA interoperability that opens doors to new applications. OPC-UA can help span wider geographic areas and include cloud-based analytics for predictive capabilities via the Siemens MindSphere IoT operating system platform. Download white paper
SIMATIC RF300 Gen2 High-Frequency RFID Solutions: Identification tasks for material flow control of assembly and production lines, as well as conveyor systems, can benefit from the extremely fast read/write speeds of the latest Gen2 iterations of 13.56 MHz RFID technology, enough that upgrades to older RFID systems should be considered.
This is exactly what a major truck transmission plant in the U.S. Midwest, where RFID has been integral for years, did. They turned to integrator, Patti Engineering, to refresh their sub-assembly line into the next generation. Read about how they turned their operation around and learn about other use cases for the RF300 Gen2. Read article and case story
