Error-free JIS Order Picking for Bumpers

UHF RFID tracking beyond trade and company boundaries ensures batch size one for automotive suppliers and OEMs

Just-in-sequence production requires smooth and effective process sequences. If components are directly fitted with tags and identified, they can be further identified beyond the boundaries of trades and companies, thus considerably simplifying the verification of the warehouse and outbound process at the supplier, as well as the inbound verification at the OEM. 

Turck, for example, implements applications with UHF readers for bumper identification. UHF tags are stuck to the inside of the bumper at the supplier at the beginning of production. They stay on the product for the entire production process and thus enable identification in production, in intermediate storage, outbound verification, during shipment, right through to delivery verification at the incoming goods area of the OEM. This therefore ensures during the production process that each bumper has the correct color and specific features.

Your Benefits

  • UHF RFID smart labels glued directly in the bumper form the basis for highly efficient bumper production and JIS (just-in-sequence) delivery to the automobile manufacturer
  • Efficient solution thanks to the use of passive antennas for locating the bumpers
  • Added value thanks to automated identification of products at the incoming goods area of the customer or OEM
  • Intelligent further processing of RFID data right through to MES and ERP systems
