Dipole RFID provides solutions for full process transparency in automotive, pharmaceutical and more
Cost reduction, full transparency, efficiency and a rapid ROI: these are the benefits of a successful RFID solution. But how can the full potential of RFID be unlocked? At RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow, Dipole RFID showcases the way towards requirements-engineered and customer-specific solutions.
More than 5,000 RFID roll outs since 2003
The family-owned business from Barcelona describes itself as one of the pioneers of industrial RFID use in Spain since 2003. Today, Dipole looks back on over 5,000 rolled out RFID projects all over Europe and North America. “We are constantly bringing our RFID expertise to further markets and sectors. For example, we recently rolled out the first solutions for food retail. More and more companies are inquiring about RFID solutions,” Santiago Depares Aguilar states. “The technology has proven to be one of the best ways for companies to gain more flexibility in their processes. RFID is cost-efficient and effective – if it is deployed right.”
Rapid ROI through immediate cost reduction
Asked about the reasons for the increasing RFID adoption throughout the industry, Santiago Depares Aguilar highlights the positive cost-benefit-ratio that RFID solutions offer.
“RFID facilitates perfect just-in-time logistics processes by generating real-time awareness of the status and location of all goods and products. If this process transparency is combined with strong software in order to process, analyse, and visualize the data, the savings are immediate. This means that RFID solutions tend to lead to a rapid return on investment.” - Santiago Depares Aguilar, Sales Director, Dipole RFID
Specialised applications for automotive and pharmacy
The ever-expanding solutions portfolio of Dipole RFID is built on specialised applications for demanding industries, such as automotive manufacturing or the pharmaceutical industry. Production, quality control, and distribution processes in these industries require a high degree of operational expertise, all of it based around perfect control of the logistics and supply chain: “There is a lot of potential in bringing connectivity to logistics processes, especially in the automotive and pharmaceutical industry. This requires specialised technology. In automotive or pharmaceutical applications, for example, labels have to be rated for on-metal use, high temperatures, and more,” Santiago Depares Aguilar explains.
Only customised hardware provides the full range of benefits
In order to provide the full benefit of RFID, customer-specific solutions require customer-specific labels. This is why extensive customization services are a part of Dipole's offerings, Santiago Depares Aguilar says: “Every customer is different. Due to our design knowledge and experience for antennas, labels and tags, we know the matching design for each case and can design new ones if application circumstances require it. We have a strong partnership with Smartrac, for example, as well as with other leading RFID tag and label manufacturers, enabling us to choose the best hardware for the application. We then specify the products even further according to customer requirements. Dipole has been developing RFID tag systems with special applications for years and can cover a wide range of requirements to solve specific identification situations.”
