How Rfid Electronic Tags Are Applied In Production Line Management

April 26,2022.

RFID radio frequency identification is a non-contact automatic identification technology, which automatically identifies target objects and obtains relevant data through radio frequency signals. Short-range radio frequency identification does not require manual intervention, and is not afraid of harsh environments such as oil stains and dust pollution. It can replace barcodes in such environments, such as tracking objects on factory assembly lines. Long-distance radio frequency products are mostly used in traffic, and the identification distance can reach tens of meters, such as automatic toll collection or identification of vehicle identity.

The advantage of ID applied to the retail industry is that the application of RFID barcode technology makes tens of thousands of commodity types, prices, origins, batches, shelves, inventory and other information transparent.

1. Specific application of RFlD-based production line management
In order to produce better quality products while reducing production costs. And to meet the requirements of ISO 9000, manufacturers are more careful to track product information and spray volume control with lJ process, which requires manufacturers to implement RFID.

RFID is entering the heart of the manufacturing process. By gradually adopting RFID technology at the factory floor level, manufacturers can directly and continuously access information captured from RFID and link to existing, proven and industry-hardened control system infrastructure, in coordination with RFID-enabled supply chains , so that there is no need to update the existing Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and Manufacturing Information System (MIS), it is possible to send accurate and reliable real-time information flow, thereby creating added value, improving productivity and significantly saving investment.

2. Processing of real-time effectiveness of information management
For manufacturers, timely and accurate feedback information from the production line is very important. In the past, only after the end of production can the settlement and statistics of this information be made, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive, and sometimes human errors are inevitable.

If RFID reading equipment is installed at each node of the production line, and RFID electronic tags that can be read and written repeatedly are placed on the product or tray. In this way, when these products or pallets pass through these nodes, the RFID reading and writing equipment can read the information in the labels on the products or pallets, and feed these systems to the background management system in real time, so that manufacturers can easily Keep abreast of the detailed working conditions of the production line. And by combining RFID with existing manufacturing information systems such as MES, ERP, CRM, and IDM, a more powerful information chain can be established to transmit accurate data at the right time, thereby enhancing productivity and improving productivity. Asset utilization and a higher level of quality control.

3. Application in manufacturing management process
Since RFID can provide a constantly updated stream of real-time MODERNBUSINESS data, combined with manufacturing execution systems, RFID provides this information to ensure the correct use of labor, machines, tools and parts. With this kind of timely and accurate information management, paperless and contractual production is possible, and it can greatly reduce production line downtime and improve production efficiency.

If there is a batch or even several batches of contract products, the same production line needs to be used for T-added production, but only in some parts are slightly different. In the previous production method, it was only possible to produce the same type of product first, then stop the production line, make adjustments, and then produce another type of product, which caused losses.

By implementing the RFID system, different types of products can be encoded and written into the RFID electronic tags. When different types of products enter the processing point, the RFID reading and writing equipment reads the information in the RFID active electronic tag, so that the processing equipment confirms which type of product is processed. If there is an automatic sorting conveyor, by identifying the RFID tag, the sorting of the product can be easily completed, so that the product can be sent to the correct production line.

4. The application of RFID technology in production logistics management
Manufacturing includes both purchasing and sales, as well as the production of converting low-value materials into high-value-added products. Quick Response and Agility are key success factors in manufacturing. The production logistics is the core link of the entire logistics of the manufacturing industry. Synchronization of production logistics and production process is a logistics activity of the whole process from the purchase of raw materials to the delivery of finished products. Raw materials, semi-finished products, etc. are continuously moved and transferred between processing points according to the technological process, forming production logistics. It is an activity specific to a production enterprise that makes a product, and if production is interrupted, the production logistics is interrupted, and vice versa.

With the help of RFID technology, electronic tags on raw materials, parts, semi-finished products and in-process products enable production planning managers to quickly locate them and understand the consumption of raw materials. This will greatly improve the efficiency and quality of production; at the same time, RFID technology can also The collection and processing of product information helps the production personnel to easily grasp the operation of the entire production line and further accelerate the production progress of the product. Due to the readable and writable nature of RFID, it can provide a constantly updated real-time data stream. Complementary to manufacturing execution systems, the information provided by RFID can be used to ensure the correct use of labor, machines, tools and parts. The result is paperless production and reduced downtime, facilitating smooth production logistics.

Further, combining RFID with existing manufacturing information systems such as ERP, CRM, etc., establishes a more powerful information chain, and realizes the timely delivery of accurate data at the exact time, thereby improving asset utilization, enhancing productivity, Perform various online measurements and support quality control.

5. Conduct accurate information tracking
Compliance with FDA quality specifications enables manufacturers of consumer packaged goods, food, and beverages to accurately track and trace product information throughout their supply chain. Today, due to the negligence of a certain link, products with quality problems enter the market. These quality problems, the most serious may lead to consumer life-threatening. Therefore, it is not uncommon for the manufacturer to take back the product. With the help of the RFID system, with accurate and timely information feedback, manufacturers can quickly inquire about the production date, contract number, source of raw materials, and production process of the product in question, and even pinpoint a problem as needed product information. The application of RFID system can achieve real-time information management, flexible Manufacturing management, accurate tracking and tracing of these goals, and improving the level of automated production, production efficiency, making production management more flexible, and ultimately benefiting manufacturers.
