Automatic tool identification with industrial RFID

Thanks to RFID, the correct data are in the right place at the right time.

The transfer of tool parameters such as tool number, diameter and length to the CNC control ensures optimum tool use and high machine availability. Downtime monitoring and asset management concepts prevent unproductive idling, incorrect assignments and tools that are missing or not sharpened according to schedule.

Tool ID solutions read the current status on the tool and document all data. This enables forecasting for future use. And the quality and efficiency of the production process therefore improve while costs drop and efficiency increases.

With Industrial RFID, you always have the right data in the right place at the right time. And are best positioned for Industrie 4.0.
