A fish processing company is using an RFID-enabled system that moves fish through weighing, trimming and quality-control processes, while tracking data and identifying product for inspection, based on information collected by RFID readers and antennas. The solution consists of a modular unit with a conveyor, stations for employees to conduct trimming, another station for inspection and two weight scales—all with built-in ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID reader antennas to interrogate tags built into baskets containing the fish. Hear how the system tracks work-in-progress, as well as product movements throughout the company’s facilities.
