Auto Ceramics Company Boosts Production With RTLS

NGK Automotive Ceramics USA has boosted production at its existing facility with the help of technology, in order to meet the increased demand from an expanding customer base. The company has installed produc- tion automation and real-time locating system (RTLS) tech- nologies to track the locations of its partially assembled prod- ucts as it fulfills customer orders. The technology includes BLE tags attached to pallets, which transmit data to beacon receivers known as Locators, which are installed throughout the facility. Learn how the firm has reduced the amount of labor required to search for palletized products as they move through the system.

RFID System Brings Visibility to Industrial Supply Chains
A distributor of specialized manufacturing components has developed an RFID-based solution to manage its industrial manufacturer customer’s inventory at manufacturing sites. The system, known as ShelfAware, allows the supplier and its customers to track which components are onsite at any given time, via an RFID tag on each product package, as well as readers at the storage area to identify when parts are consumed. The system uses the consumption data to ensure that products are automatically reordered as needed, while also helping the manufacturer to understand its inventory levels and reduce labor costs. During this session, you will hear how RFID has played a crucial role in the development of its Internet of Thing systems.
