RFID Systems for

Manufacturing and Production

Manufacturing RFID Systems bring real-time data to complex Work-In-Process organizations, and to Production processes operating under even the most challenging conditions: High temperatures, shocks, vibrations, chemicals, fluids...


Data is critical to ERPs to set production schedules and plan materials orders. While Lean Manufacturing relies on accurate information to enable just-in-time production and automation.

THE CHALLENGES OF

MANUFACTURING RFID SYSTEMS

  1. Manufacturing offers complex application environments: Metal surfaces, High Temperatures, Water immersion and jets, Caustic chemicals, Pressure, Shocks and vibrations...

  2. Production environments call for industry-grade performance, accuracy, and quality

  3. Reliance on custom designs for innovative form factors, materials, tagging systems

  4. Qualification in the field is a pre-requisite for deployment

 

USING THE RIGHT RFID SYSTEMS

Industrial processes in automotive and industrial manufacturing rely on Xerafy RFID Tags to capture information on the assembly line, in the specialized workshop, on the shop floor.

 

How to achieve optimal read-range and accuracy? How do you embed an RFID tag? Xerafy RFID Tags include both On-Metal as well as In-Metal options, with customization services available.

 

PAINT SHOP

Data doesn’t have to stop at the Paint Shop: From pre-treatment, through spray booth, to oven-heating, 
Industrial RFID Tags enable full-tracking of parts as well as of closed-loop carrier items such as skids.

The process expertise developed by Xerafy over the years covers a large variety of industrial paint shop processes that we helped automate across paint types, chemicals, sprays and jets, temperatures, and other critical application parameters.

 

INJECTION MOLDING

Embeddable RFID Tags are designed to be injection-molded by OEMs and suppliers into their consumables, parts, and systems.

By adding native RFID/IoT capabilities at point-of-manufacturing, they enable the digitization of integrated supply chains with real-time information and added flexibility.

 

Xerafy pioneered the concept of 'Embeddable RFID', be it in metal or in plastic, and offers a full range of ready-to-use and customizable products.

 

HIGH-TEMPERATURE

PRODUCTION

Industrial RFID Tags are used in the high-temperature production processes of Metal foundries, Composite materials, Ceramic, Concrete, Iron and Steel, Chemicals, among others.

Xerafy's Industrial RFID Tags' superior design allows them to withstand high temperatures as well as the extreme cleaning regimens they are associated with, without damage or performance degradation.

 

WORK-IN-PROCESS

Work-In-Process (WIP), and the control of it, are critical to delivering a lean manufacturing organization.

RFID systems provide production control systems with real-time information needed to monitor every batch and order in production and to alert for anomalies. The parameters monitored and recorded are used to document the production process for quality and traceability purposes.


Moreover, RFID systems help to identify process inefficiencies and addressing them. Production facilities with multiple and extensive storage facilities benefit from automated product identification and reduced picking time thanks to accurate location management.
