Customised RFID tags speed throughput of leak testing
31 October 2011
Electronic product manufacturers seeking high standards of lean manufacturing by using RFID tags for tracking and identification can now use an electronic label system built by Uson.
The custom elements of Uson RFID tags streamline parts processing and help manage test data while cutting overall production cost.
Joe Pustka, one of the managers of Uson’s technical support team who has helped pioneer the custom RFID tags now used by Uson customers in various industries, stated: “The potential of Uson’s custom RFID tags technology to help manufacturers get better performance from their leak detection equipment is enormous. For starters, an RFID chip residing on a test part can store serial number, part number; lot number; the build plant and/or production line; date of manufacture; expiry date; part size, shape and colour; leak detection test parameters and results such as pressure, leak rate, and flow rate; and other recorded test measurements recorded such as length, weight, or torque. Uson’s custom RFID tags have been especially helpful to manufacturers of disposable parts that work together with a module or console. In these applications, when the parts are connected to the console, the RFID tags enable the console to know exactly what is connected to it and what physical parameters are required for the test solution to proceed. With RFID tags such as these, any business manufacturing products that are leak tested can create smart linking to end-user consumers, ensuring that the supply chain gets each customer the product with correct specifications.”
