Application of RFID in Logistics Warehousing
1. Smart storage
Using RFID technology as a key technology in the warehouse management system can significantly improve the warehouse and logistics management technology level, and the company can obtain a good return on investment, and in the future can effectively avoid and reduce the repeated investment in enterprise informationization upgrade.
(1) The system should be able to realize the visual management of warehouse real-time data in the management center, and truly realize the synchronization between real logistics and data flow.
(2) Realizing the electronicization of pallets and loading and unloading points, realizing the efficient entry and exit of goods, effectively completing management distribution, realizing cargo positioning and quick retrieval.
(3) Realize the rapid acquisition of on-site physical information, and compare it with ERP data to ensure that the accounts and materials are consistent.
Intelligent truck-based warehousing based on RFID technology has been successfully applied in many fields such as third-party logistics warehouses, auto parts manufacturing plants, well-known wineries, and tire mixing workshops. Throughout the supply chain logistics, forklifts are shifting from material handling vehicles to intelligent tools with information technology such as computers, RFID, and sensors. It makes the forklift shorten the search time when loading, unloading, transporting and distributing goods, and rationally classifies and controls the goods to achieve the purpose of improving efficiency, reducing cost and effective control.
2. Intelligent sorting
RFID-based "automatic sorting" solution, using more advanced automatic identification technology, has a lower error rate than the traditional sorting system, is not affected by the direction of the goods, and can penetrate Some substances read, store more material information, and better scalability. RFID technology is used to install the RFID read/write device on the key nodes of the conveyor line, which can automatically realize the tracking and management of the package information. Automatically record the operation process of the input item, the operation time, and play an important role in improving the conveying speed, reducing the transmission error, and losing the goods.
3. Visual logistics
The logistics information is visualized in all aspects of logistics, including logistics resource information, logistics demand information, logistics process, logistics status, logistics control and logistics environment visualization. Logistics visualization is aimed at logistics information, and its premise is the digitization of logistics.
4. Cold Chain Logistics
There is also a segment of the field that is equally eye-catching, that is cold chain logistics. It is also because in 2010, a Shanxi toxic vaccine incident that shocked the country occurred. Let government regulators, enterprises and ordinary people pay more attention to cold chain logistics. We are now looking back at this incident. The core problem is the lack of process monitoring, which leads to the exposure of the vaccine to high temperatures during transportation and is not detected or regulated in time. Some people are missing and there are also lack of management tools. The lack of people is not something we can consider. So, in terms of management methods, is there a better way to do this? This is something that can be considered. The development of RFID technology will have the opportunity to provide new regulatory ideas for this process management.
The ThingMagic reader is fully compatible with the mainstream RFID sensor tags on the market. Like ordinary RFID tags, it is also an ultra-high-frequency RFID tag that conforms to the ISO18000-6C protocol. The structure is also encapsulated by chips and antennas. The difference is that in addition to the functions of the current UHF tag chip, the chip also has the ability to collect some information such as temperature, humidity or pressure. Therefore, it is still a label we are familiar with. When it does not need sensor signal storage, it can be permanently maintenance-free without battery. It is also ISO18000-6C air interface protocol, CRC check to ensure data accuracy. The sensing signal is converted from digital signal with high precision, but the temperature can only be controlled within 0.5 degrees Celsius. At the same time, it has the technical characteristics of UHF RFID, and supports long-distance reading. The farthest recognition distance can be up to 3 Meter. Therefore, when the sensor tag is embedded in the package, in addition to the functions described above, it has additional additional features.
It can be seen that RFID sensor tags have obvious advantages in the application of such cold chain transportation. Includes automatic identification, data security, automatic monitoring, and more. Of course, this is just the application of temperature sensors. Humidity, pressure, light display, etc. all have their specific application scenarios, which help to achieve some specific functions. The RFID package integrated with these functions can provide more possibilities for visual logistics. .
