Whether barcode, 2D codes or RFID – our contact-free systems identify objects accurately with optical, electromagnetic or other physical detection methods. In industrial environments, the robust systems reliably complete demanding tasks like parts tracking (Track-and-Trace) or tool ID.
Barcodes and color codes are used to clearly identify coils and other products. The Balluff BVS vision sensor uses these markings to check whether slabs and coils are correctly assigned. Quickly, reliably and independent of their position.
RFID or barcodes make it possible to identify samples and racks and clearly associate the recorded data. High productivity thanks to high rate of uptime. Unnecessary inspection stations are skipped, which speeds up the process.
Balluff relies on autonomous RFID systems to correctly mix additives, dyes and granulates in coupling stations. Each coupling is identified and only released if it is connected at the right location. This way, we ensure that the right component is always used.
Balluff Industrial RFID enables fast and reliable mould replacement with the unambiguous association of mould halves through unique IDs. Reliable counterfeit protection is also guaranteed. This solution allows for rapid size changes and facilitates a continuous process.
Unplanned downtimes can be reduced with the help of the automatic documentation of the mold's usage using Balluff RFID. A separate shot counter records all production cycles. All the data is available on a data carrier either directly on the mould or on the multi-coupling. This allows the mold status to be displayed directly on the machine and provide an overview of the life cycle of the current mold at any time.
