Manufacturing
11:00 AM
Welcome and Introduction
Speaker: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal
11:05 AM
Reducing Production Errors and Increasing Efficiencies With RFID
A heating technology manufacturer is employing RFID technology to track work-in-progress as it produces residential boilers at one of its facilities in Europe. Battery-assisted passive tags are being used to identify where carts loaded with boilers should go next, and the system shuts itself down if a cart is wheeled to the wrong location. Since being installed at one of the factory's four assembly lines the system has been responsible for reducing production errors six-fold, thereby increasing the quality and efficiency of the assembly process.
11:40 AM
Automating the Manufacturing Process With RFID
An interior door manufacturer is affixing passive UHF tags to the wood planks it uses to make its products, employing RFID data to instruct the automatic manufacturing process. The factory has RFID-enabled two production lines for the routing and customization of doors. By shifting the manufacturing to an automated system, the firm is now able to better accommodate a large number of orders in a timely manner. Learn how the RFID-enabled automation saves time and reduces the potential for human errors.
12:05 PM
RFID Reduces Inventory Time and Improves Visibility for Tile Maker
Maruhachi Ceramics of America (MCA) is employing a radio frequency identification solution to track the locations of 50,000 pallets loaded with products, and has thereby reduced the amount of time needed to take inventory of its clay roofing tiles by 98 percent. The system also ensures that personnel know where a specific product is located when they need to load it onto a truck. Learn how the firm has expanded the deployment to include supplies and tools, to better ensure that components and materials required for manufacturing can be found when needed.
12:35 PM
Manufacturer Tracks Scaffolding Products Via Beacon-Based RTLS
A manufacturer of construction equipment is using Bluetooth beacons to track the real-time movements of scaffolding products within a portion of its production facility and warehouse, with plans for a larger deployment. The firm is attaching Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to crates in which scaffolding products are stored and shipped, with beacon-reading smartphones mounted on walls and gates, and beacon-reading tablets or mobile phones in workers' hands. An app running on the mounted reading devices uses the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) to approximate each tag's location within the facility in real time. Workers can then use their tablets, with a separate app to locate identify crates.
