Traceability is a very important concept, especially in large industrial sectors, such as the automobile industry. Automotive RFID has many advantages that you can take advantage of to improve productivity, assembly line times and manage stock.
Find out what traceability is and how RFID technology in the automotive industry helps to optimize your supply chain 100% with Bionix Technologies.
RFID traceability for automotive
In the Bionix Technologies blog we have already talked about what product traceability is, but this time we want to focus on what traceability is like in the automotive industry and what are the best solutions for companies working in this sector.
As you can read in our article, which we recommend if you need to dig deeper, traceability is the real-time identification of raw materials, materials and final products throughout the supply chain.
In the automotive sector, traceability is very important due to the large number of components that are needed to make a single product, the need to identify which items we require for the customized configurations of each client and also, to improve relationships with our suppliers.
RFID in the automotive industry, the technology that helps you obtain total traceability
The implementation of RFID technology in the automotive industry allows full traceability during all phases or stages of the production process, something that is not possible with other technologies.
To be able to use RFID technology in the automotive sector, special RFID tags are needed adapted to withstand high temperatures, extreme treatment conditions and that do not interfere with radio frequency waves in contact with metal.
Where are these tags used and how does RFID work?
Each and every component that goes into an automotive factory has a RFID tag like the one we have mentioned. In this way, all the items are correctly identified, which allows us to redistribute each of the elements that we need and must manage to manufacture the final product.
In short, the information on the tags allows us to know its location, its useful life, whether it has been subjected to any prior process and how many of these types of parts we have available at all times in our factory.
Automation during the manufacturing process thanks to RFID technology in the automotive industry allows controlling the entries of goods from suppliers and the packaging of parts, making easy the recirculation in the plant.
RFID in the automotive industry makes it possible to avoid errors in the collation of components during the final assembly, something very important in such a competitive sector.
The multiple variations that can be found within the same factory and within the same model make it necessary for employees to know and quickly identify the characteristics of each vehicle to optimize production times. Something that is possible with RFID.
In a sector as competitive as the automobile sector, it is very important to reduce logistics times as much as possible and deliver correctly to dealers and the end customer.
This is possible thanks to RFID, which by identifying the items allows us to view all the data on logistics flows at all times on the same cloud platform.
The vehicles, once finished, are at the dealership, where it is also very important to check whether they are already sold or not, to which customer they belong or what their characteristics and variants are compared to others.
