SICK Group, a producer of sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications, announced a range of new RFID readers and labels designed for identification in the automotive industry.
The readers aim to help car manufactures identify vehicles under production via reliable scanning and reading capabilities. SICK’s readers enable manufacturers to gather, process and evaluate information pertaining to individual vehicles during production.
The company has also developed an ISO/IEC-1800-6 compatible and temperature resistant (able to withstand temperatures of 200ºC common in painting lines) ultra-high frequency RFID label which affixes to the automotive body.
This combination of the reader and label will allow automotive makers to track ongoing production processes, from beginning to end – from the painting process to final assembly and outward transfer.
