Sensor specialist and RFID provider Balluff offers traceability solutions for lean manufacturing processes. They simplify just-in-time deliveries, aid legal certainty and ensure product quality. Data carriers mounted directly on a workpiece, a workpiece carrier or on equipment gaplessly record all steps and lots of a production sequence. This occurs in running operation, so that the data can be evaluated in real time or later – even after years – for traceability purposes. The identification systems solve application problems for material flow monitoring, automated assembly, warehousing or the control and quality assurance of flexible production lines.
