RFID Solutions and Locating
Let the data journey begin with RFID solutions.
Industrial processes in the digital enterprise demand total transparency and a high level of customization. Our solutions close the gap between the real and the digital worlds – and add value along the entire production and supply chain. We offer the industry of the future a unique, consistent end-to-end range of identification and locating systems for customer-specific applications. TIA connectivity ensures our products are seamlessly integrated in automation solutions. Support for cloud applications such as MindSphere allow large volumes of data to be recorded, analyzed, and utilized to make improvements. The end result is a system that improves visibility, increases efficiency, and brings our customers one step closer to the factory of the future.
Added value with our systemsIncreasing demand for custom and build-to-order products makes production and supply chains more complex. Therefore it’s important to utilize systems that make these complex processes manageable and cost-effective. Do you want to be able to control your production flexibility, manage your assets efficiently, track your products and components reliably, and synchronize your supply chain intelligently? Discover how to achieve all of this and more with our SIMATIC Ident products and solutions.
Optimize your production and material flow control
Machine-readable, automated, and contactless identification systems create improvements all along production and supply chains: manual work steps can be reduced, potential sources of error identified and avoided, and plant availability increased. Production can be structured more flexibly and can be made faster, even with a high level of customization. For example, the sequentially correct delivery of work pieces permits flexible planning of autonomous production steps, which prevents installation faults and the need to rework faults. You benefit from greater efficiency and economy. in logistics, material management, production, and service in a wealth of variations.
Improve customer satisfaction
With SIMATIC Ident, every product leaves a digital trace that can be documented at every step, from the creation of the individual components to recycling. This means that fluctuations in product quality can be tracked and sources of error identified and rectified at an early stage. In logistics, the systems make it possible to identify, analyze, and rectify weak points in the process. Legal requirements – for example, in the pharmaceutical or food industries – can be reliably satisfied using Industrial Identification.
What products or components are available, when, where, and in what condition? SIMATIC Ident provides fast and reliable answers to these questions. With RFID and optical reading systems from Siemens, all products and parts can be monitored in real time at all stages of the transport process, and external sequences can be better integrated into actual production. And as the digital transformation progresses, we can achieve even more: virtual data flows and real product flows will come together to produce maximum transparency in both production and logistics processes. This makes it possible to not only analyse and visualize the track-and-trace information but also to ensure that the analysed data is available worldwide. So that products arrive more quickly where they need to be: with customers.
