V680 Series Features 9

Assembly line job instructions

Automated reading of vehicle model information, job instructions, and process history stored in RF tags prevents human errors and reduces costs related to defects and waste, even in mixed lines.

V680 Series Features 10

Traceability management

At each process, jobs are performed per the job instructions in RF tags followed by writing the results of the job into these RG tags. Central management of workers, manufacturing dates, and inspection data enables a reliable system of product traceability.

V680 Series Features 11

History and service life management

Installing RF tags to molds and antennas to molding machines enables mold information to be read from the RF tags. This enables easy management of cumulative shot time and shot counts, which impacts mold quality. If the wrong mold is accidentally mounted, automatic mold checks performed before the molding process can prevent production of defects.

V680 Series Features 12

Line sorting

Installing antennas at branch points enables you to easily construct sorting systems that read RF tag information on containers and use PLCs or other control systems to perform point sorting. The lack of mechanical structures, such as mechanical flags, enables the build-out of maintenance-free systems with very few failures.

Massive System Variation

We provide a wide variety of RFID components so that users can customize configurations for any installation space or objective, from replacing multiple sensor-based systems to managing large amounts of manufacturing data.

RF tags

This information medium is used to tie objects and information together. Our lineup includes devices of 1 kbyte to 8 kbytes. Select components based on storage amount and size of installation object.
