Balluff’s portfolio of industrial identification products now includes high-temperature High Frequency (HF) and Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID tags. In addition, the rugged line of HF and UHF RFID readers designed for harsh operating environments has been expanded to allow more connectivity options and expanded read ranges.
The new systems provide a flexible traceability solution for manufacturing in difficult environments similar to the semiconductor industry or in paint-spray lines and drying ovens in the automotive sector.
Balluff offers not only the entire spectrum of LF, HF, and UHF-RFID systems and components, but also a variety of stationary and hand-held bar-code readers, which provide an economical traceability solution on a high technical level. When a clear line of site is available and information on the tag is minimal, bar-code identification is a viable method of identifying objects and providing visibility into a process. Bar-code technology is commonly applied in transportation and logistics or less harsh environments and allows for accurate location tracking of materials.
A traceability system offers users access to a wealth of actionable data and allows organizations to operate with true business intelligence. Traceability in manufacturing enables organizations to create lean manufacturing processes, simplify just-in-time delivery, aid legal certainty, and ensure product quality.
