RFIDs for PWB Mounting Process Management
Case Number 217
last update: April 19, 2011
RFID Tags (IC tags) that are attached to magazine racks store PWB information, such as lot number, model, PWB size, and number of boards. Setup changes are also performed during mounting based on information in RFID Tags (IC tags).
Completion information and information on the PWBs that are used are written to the RFID Tags (IC tags) on magazine racks when mounting is completed.
Inspection results (pass/fail) are written to RFID Tags (IC tags) in the inspection process, and failed items are fed back to the revision process.
RFID Tags (IC tags) that are attached to magazine racks store PWB information, such as lot number, model, PWB size, and number of boards. Setup changes can also be automated. The results of inspection processes are written to RFID Tags (IC tags), which simplifies the feedback of information for management of production history and revisions.
Benefit / Efficiency
This eliminates mistakes in setup changes, and prevents careless mistakes because mounting history information is collected automatically.
The need for administration computers for PWB magazine racks is reduced compared with bar codes.
Support for flexible production is provided by ‘urgent flags’ in RFID Tags (IC tags) on magazine racks. This enables management that can flexibly support diversification and reduced delivery times.
