RFID & NFC for Industry 4.0
Redefining New Era for Industry Automation and Smart Factories
ARE YOU READY FOR THE UPCOMING INDUSTRIAL & SMART FACTORY (R)EVOLUTION?
Industry 4.0 – the fourth industrial revolution, characterised by the increasing digitization, automatization and interconnection of machines, products, value chains and sensors, is hot topic in the entire industrial sector. Interconnected machines that can communicate with each other and collect data might gain additional value by identifying and connecting to the physical products, communicate its status through value chain or even enable and collect data from products through RFID, NFC and sensor technologies.
Physical products and logistics items were not necessarily built to provide us with this functionality. As a result, we need a way to increase the track and trace ability in manufacturing and logistics and extend machine-to-machine connectivity from products to other connected devices. A significant role in industry 4.0 revolution plays therefore the use of:
smart-TEC offers a complete portfolio of RFID tags and labels for industrial needs and provides solutions for easy purchase of RFID tags under one roof, from simple labels to durable tags. Products range from rugged, rugged industrial RFID tags with ATEX certification, RFID cards, key to self-adhesive labels and tags.
Self-adhesive NFC & RFID labels and tags
RFID labels are the most common form of tags. In addition to traditional paper and synthetic labels per reel for use in RFID printers, smart-TEC supplies labels with a variety of customization, choice of materials, custom printing or fitted with special security features. In case the label shall properly fulfil its role, a very important element is the choice of a suitable adhesive for particular substrates. A special variant are the labels for metallic substrates, resistant PU coated labels or labels for high temperature environments.
Durable and special RFID & NFC tags
Durable tags are capable of withstanding high temperatures and harsh conditions throughout the production process. There is a choice of a wide variety of tags as regards to tag variations, shapes, sizes, chips, frequency, resistance, incl. ATEX and safety features miniature tags for embedded and proximity applications, RFID tags for packaging and logistics returnable items, asset management up to logistics durable tags for tracking wagons and containers. Customization, selection of right chip technology and the development of new specific shapes required by the project are often the key factor for successful implementation.
