With the gradual promotion of automation and informatization, industrial intelligence has always attracted attention. For manufacturers, information on various links such as production line machine process flow is very important. Since 2000, it can be called the upgrading stage of my country's industrial automation system. At this stage, market demand and the scale of the industry expanded rapidly, and production, warehousing, and distribution technologies were comprehensively improved. Modern warehousing systems, sorting systems, and automated production line technologies have begun to be used in rfid automated production lines in various domestic industries, especially in tobacco, cold chain, medicine, new energy vehicles, machinery manufacturing and other industries.
RFID is an important core component of the perception layer of the Internet of Things, and non-contact perception is used to realize intelligent identification and collection of data. The Internet of Things technology allows different devices to be interconnected through RFID electronic tags. The industrial manufacturing environment is very complex. Through the use of RFID electronic tags, RFID readers, and bar code, PLC and other technologies, real-time data collection of materials, work in progress, execution equipment, tooling and other multi-source links is provided for production and operation control. Basic data can effectively improve production efficiency.
Intelligent manufacturing production combines RFID technology and existing IT systems to establish a real-time management system for intelligent and digital production lines to make production more optimized and use resources more rationally, thereby increasing production capacity, asset utilization and high-quality control , Let production create greater benefits. RFID technology creates integrated intelligent production line management.
RFID technology realizes precise positioning of AGV trolleys, unmanned transport vehicles, and unmanned transport robots, and accelerates the transportation rate. By installing an RFID card reader under the material handling trolley and installing AGV landmarks on the track, when the trolley or unmanned handling robot passes through the track node, the RFID card reader automatically obtains the AGV landmark information (enter material information, type, Quantity, etc.) to achieve precise positioning, real-time acquisition of transportation status, and grasp the real-time status of the entire workshop or warehouse goods, thereby speeding up transportation efficiency, improving work efficiency, and realizing unmanned handling and unmanned contact management. The material transportation status of all transportation lines promotes production efficiency.
By installing RFID fixed card readers at the nodes of the production line, the trays or products are affixed to RFID electronic tags. When the items pass through the nodes, the RFID readers will automatically collect RFID electronic tag goods information, real-time, visualization, information, and data , Flexible production line management! Improve production efficiency, reduce manual input, avoid personnel contact and intersection, and improve production efficiency.
A visual production process monitoring platform can be realized through products such as station RFID readers, electronic trays, RFID electronic tag pendants, and the entire process can be tracked from rough to finished products, and the automatic reporting of products, the completed quantity of each product/batch, The current process of the workpiece, the execution equipment and operators of each process, and the actual working hours of each process, etc., provide original certification data for planning and scheduling, on-line materials, on-site logistics, and quality traceability, and provide a basis for enterprises to carry out value engineering. Form a product traceability tracking system, greatly improve the credibility of the company's products, and establish a complete quality system.
The RFID intelligent chemical factory can achieve greater production efficiency and improve the level of industrial automation without direct contact with personnel to a greater extent. RFID technology can implement process monitoring and visual management of the implementation of production plans. RFID enhances the timeliness of production planning and scheduling in intelligent production, greatly reduces some human errors in work to a certain extent, and improves the efficiency of the entire production line and the entire business process.
In terms of intelligent management, RFID tags and RFID handheld terminals have made great contributions to "good partners" in smart storage applications. The staff puts the RFID tag outside the packing box for binding and review when entering the warehouse, searching and reviewing when leaving the warehouse, and scanning and reading through RFID handheld devices during inventory and searching. In this way, the processes of receiving, putting on shelves, picking, replenishing, shipping, and inventory can be better completed, which is convenient and fast.
Based on the advantages of large capacity of RFID data, fast recognition speed, long service life, wide application range, convenient and fast reading, dynamic real-time communication, and tag data can be dynamically changed, the application space of RFID electronic tags is constantly expanding. In the field of industrial automation, RFID electronic tags are widely used to record product specifications, models, inventory and other information on the production line. Now it has become a major trend in the development of the entire industry. The application of RFID electronic tags can be seen almost everywhere in distribution centers, assembly workshops, warehouses with a high frequency of shipments, small cargo transportation and picking operations.
In addition, RFID electronic tags can also be used in life scenarios including tracking cars, books, and computer equipment. RFID electronic tags can be implanted in animals to help identify lost pets. For food suppliers, RFID electronic tags can also help food companies track the source and place of production of packaged goods, so as to achieve product traceability and create a safety net for food safety.
The influence of interfering objects, the reading distance is too far, etc., will have a certain impact on the normal use of RFID electronic tags. Therefore, when using RFID readers, managers also need to master the correct method of use. Perhaps in a few years, RFID technology will have a more mature industrialization model from industrial manufacturing use to management, and the true value of RFID technology will also be more comprehensively displayed in terms of production line automation, marking of item numbers and item types.
