Automotive RFID Labels
The automotive industry is a competitive environment, with every automotive manufacturer looking for a leg up on his competition. As such, innovation is taking place in every sector of the industry, with smart new digital and engineering technology being integrated into the products currently in development. As a result, wide-area radio-frequency identification (RFID), which can significantly increase performance and efficiency, has rapidly become an indispensable technology for any manufacturer seeking to remain competitive.
The Supply Chain
The overall efficiency of the supply chain can be greatly improved through RFID technology by automating the process and providing more visibility. Parts and components shipped to manufacturers for assembly can be RFID tagged, enabling automated receiving, with goods compared to data via an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This dramatically reduces the margin for error and makes mistakes easier and quicker to correct.
With so many automotive parts, it can be difficult for a factory or assembly plant to properly track each item and maintain an accurate inventory. RFID technology allows for every single item to be accounted for at all times, and any misplaced item can be identified, located, and retrieved swiftly, limiting the impact of human error. This also makes taking inventory a much faster process, allowing products to be scanned from greater distances. With RFID, you can store and track more information and even program the system to automatically re-order supplies to prevent shortages when supplies are low.
RFID technology can also be used to identify and track assembled vehicles. This permits cars to be located within crowded lots, for shipping or should any additional work need to be performed. The unique RFID serial number can also be associated with the VIN number, making it easier to build a service history of the vehicle and verify whether it has been involved in an accident or crime.
GA international can provide fully customizable RFID tags to suit your specific application. This includes a variety of inlay and antennae combinations, depending on the amount of information that needs to be encoded, your safety concerns, and the necessary read range. Our durable specialty labels combined with customizable RFID technology make for an error-free, dependable identification solution.
Moreover, an RFID system can be employed to verify that parts and components are where they need to be when they need to be. This can help synchronize production flow and keep production lines running smoothly. With RFID tags, items can be delivered to the line in advance, ensuring workers are never waiting for parts to arrive, minimizing inefficiency and time waste.
