Automation & Manufacturing

Automation and manufacturing incorporates RFID technology to streamline industrial manufacturing processes to increase productivity, safety and security. RFID transponders calibrate and track equipment use, repair and maintenance efficiently.

RFID for automation integrators and OEMs

Manufacturing today is increasingly sophisticated with involving complexities and automated procedures. With this sophistication has come a greater need to monitor products as they go through the production process to achieve efficiencies that lower operating costs.

As part of an automation solution, HID Global’s RFID tags enable data to move with a product, adding information as the product travels through the manufacturing process. They also can monitor the performance and repair history of the manufacturing equipment.

Key features of HID Global RFID Tags:

  • Support all standard frequency ranges and are durable for use in the most demanding applications and support all standard frequency ranges.
  • Operate in metallic environments
  • Withstand extreme temperatures, flames, harsh chemicals and the rough handling often found in high-volume manufacturing facilities or during transportation.
  • Tags may be branded with partner logos of our partners to support their market positioning.
