How far is RFID from commercialization?
the cartons with RFID tags are then sent to the conveyor belt of the production line and read by the code reader. "We managed to achieve a 100% readout rate, but this conveying system is relatively slow." Alex Renz, RFID project manager of Microsoft, said. "This may be a special challenge for the company. If they have to slow down the packaging line in order to achieve 100% readout rate, it will have a great loss on their production." However, the low price of RF supply has caused nearly all vanadium enterprises to suffer losses. Mike f0wler, President of Sato company in the United States of Jack link, mentioned that the speed of the printer has been significantly improved in a short time. This is a major achievement in the past year. Many high-speed printers are now easy to buy, which was impossible before this summer
when the cartons of Jack link company are taken off the conveyor belt and sent further away, the system counts 90 cartons, or a whole pallet, and records the information about each box in Navision software. The tray is wrapped with shrink film, and the software prints RFID tags for the tray. Another lesson learned here is that the shrink packaging process limits the ability of RFID readers to read the information of each carton. However, the RFID tag is located outside the pallet goods - it contains the relevant information of each carton on the pallet, which can meet the consistency with Walmart
at the receiving point, walman must be able to read the pallets entering the freight center with 100% accuracy. In order to meet this challenge, jacklink labeled it 4. Write a small amount of information for the personal safety of experimenters. Jack link hopes to expand the use of RFID in three links next year. In the next step, the company will integrate RFID technology into the production process to a greater extent, positioning RFID tags as a closed-loop system. When they pass through each production stage, it can automatically track product components and data. The next step is to extend it to the raw material purchase process, so that the company can automatically track the beef transportation process of individual suppliers and track these raw materials until they are finally delivered
this is very good for meat suppliers and pharmaceutical companies. The new regulations require the company to accurately track the transportation process of the product in the product recall event. Jack link has never had a product recalled, but in serious recall events, it takes 12-16 hours to find the company's special products, because many of them are still handled manually. "We don't have to do this. Thank God it's very slow." Paepke said. "With RFID, the company believes that this process will be completed quickly - only 30 minutes." The last step is to promote RFID in the circulation process, so that the internal inventory handover from the company's manufacturing point to its circulation center can be automated. The company did not say how much it expected to spend to promote the project in these links, but he believed that Jack link could get a return on investment within 12 months
when the company was happy with the results of the trial, paep Ke saw some questions about 4.6 C at the additive manufacturing user group meeting in Chicago, but the problem of poor universality emerged. As a pioneer,
