Schreiner ProTech Intros RFID Label for Container Management

Schreiner ProTech will present its ((rfid))-DistaFerr ESD LongRange label for container marking at LogiMAT 2018, to be held in Stuttgart on Mar. 13 to 15. The company recently added the new label to its RFID label family for ESD materials.

In conventional mass-production operations, the parts to be processed typically arrive at the respective assembly stations in containers via a kanban system with bar-code expansion card functionality—a complex and error-prone logistics system. By contrast, the company reports, containers equipped with RFID labels enable bulk data acquisition, offer end-to-end batch or lot tracking and make optimized empties management possible due to real-time inventory information.

The ((rfid))-DistaFerr ESD LongRange label, designed for use on ESD containers of all types and antistatic levels, delivers a read range of approximately 7 meters (23 feet). It meets the recommendation of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) for ESD container marking, the company reports.

Another new product in the portfolio is a hybrid label that combines Near Field Communication (NFC) technology with ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID technology. The label enables long-range reading in manufacturing and logistics, according to the company, as well as smartphone-based reading at customer sites. LogiMAT's attendees will have the opportunity to learn how RFID labels can be dispensed, by watching the operation of a label applicator at Schreiner ProTech's booth.

During a technical presentation to be held at the LogiMAT Forum, RFID expert Frank Linti will describe the challenges that Industry 4.0 poses to logistics and production, and what a supply chain networked and optimized down to the manufacturing cell by means of the Internet of Things (IoT) can look like.
