RF id tags and NFC

Recommended Posts

Richard Hagan

Smart technology can be applied to nearly everything we manufacture.  By encapsulating or placing a RF or NFC chip onto a product, big data can be harnessed. RF scanners can capture thousands of RF tags in a single scan or find an item from thousands randomly positioned about.  The future of manufactured goods with tags provides our customers a secure guarantee that the item is genuine, being able to access  lots of information about the product and also provide manufactures access to end users data.  Those already using tags can track products during manufacture to improve efficiency, log each items movements and processes gaining valuable information to improve quality.  

The market for RF and NFC tags and soon the combination is expected to grow exponentially over the next five years. https://www.whichplm.com/the-future-of-nfc-in-retail-technology/ Opportunities to disrupt the present methods of product identification, collect masses of data and make smart products that customers interact with, providing data back to manufacturers is an opportunity not to miss.  I phone 6 now just with a tap, reads NFC tags which will fuel demand for products to include such smart technology to be embedded.  Its time to look at IOT with 2020 vision and a clear plan to adopt.

Crystal Door will be showing our embedded smart technology at the NEC KBB 2020 1-4 March.  Customers can tap a door, and connect immediately to a Crystal Doors or see a data sheet of the product. 

Please do share your views, predictions or what experiences you have using this technology.

Hi @Richard Hagan

Thanks for posting. There seems to be endless potential for this type of software - not only in the production process but also for customers as well. How are you managing the data being produced by these at Crystal Door? i.e. are you are having to hire employees with specific data skills or are you upskilling existing staff to process the data? 

Many thanks.

Best regards,

Daniel.

Upskilling the existing employees to understand the use and implications of QR coded labels, NDC and RFid tags has been a very important first step.  The journey for integration of such technology is both requiring the skills of external consultants and upskilling our existing staff. The need to create a digital twin of our manufacturing processes and bring the silos of data from various departments to a central manageable platform has been our challenge.  Now our focus is on the end user experience and  minimising the barriers for them to adopt the technology to gain benefits otherwise not possible.  Through our journey, we first employed a IT specialist to carry out training, implementation and adaption of our platform as a champion for the project.
