Lectures

Learn how leading companies employ RFID for predictive maintenance, tool use optimisation, and mass customization. Embedded in cast aluminium parts and machinery or attached to tools, containers, and vehicles, RFID solutions optimize processes in automotive manufacturing, aerospace, electrical engineering, machine engineering and more.
Efficient Test Device Management Via RFID In Airbus A380 Cabin Interior Assembly

Efficient Test Device Management Via RFID In Airbus A380 Cabin Interior Assembly

Tatjana Ockert
Project Manager Efficiency Management, Airbus in Hamburg
In Hamburg-Finkenwerder, Airbus tracks test devices with regard to the cabin interior assembly of the Airbus A380 with RFID since February 2017. The goal is to simplify the management of the test devices and to enhance efficiency potentials. Airbus documents the issuance, return and status of the test devices via an RFID gate and an RFID-controlled key cabinet. The employees guarantee 100 percent transparency and control by identifying themselves via their employee ID.
Secure Tool Change with RFID for Truck Catalyst at Kirschenhofer Maschinen

Secure Tool Change with RFID for Truck Catalyst at Kirschenhofer Maschinen

Craig Craill
Head of the Electrical Department, Kirschenhofer Maschinen
For Kirschenhofer, flexibility and traceability are two of the most important features of modern automation technology. Therefore, RFID tool identification is used in a plant for the production of different catalytic converters for trucks. In the tool mounting, three read/write heads secure the use of the correct tools. Thus, the machine cannot be started with a wrong tool.
SBB Cargo uses RFID as the basis for digitalization and predictive maintenance

SBB Cargo uses RFID as the basis for digitalization and predictive maintenance

Patrick Sorg
Project Manager Asset Intelligence, SBB Cargo
The Swiss Federal railways (SBB) are upgrading: Freight traffic subsidiary SBB Cargo relies on a widescale RFID solution to increase efficiency and productivity. Over 5,000 freight cars and train control stations all over Switzerland will be outfitted with RFID transponders and readers. The goal is modernizing individual railroad car operations and maintenance processes.

Embedding of RFID Tags in the Manufacturing Process of Cast Automotive Parts

Embedding of RFID Tags in the Manufacturing Process of Cast Automotive Parts

Christoph Pille
Deputy Head of Department Foundry Technology, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM
The Fraunhofer IFAM has developed a patented process by which RFID transponders can be integrated directly into components during the casting process with aluminium melt. Together with project partners of the automotive industry, the institute provided the proof-of-concept that this process can be used reliably in large-scale production, using LF transponders. The next development goal: the integration of UHF transponders for additional benefits and security reasons in the component supply chain.
RFID Integration Support for +500 Suppliers of OEMs e.g. VW, Porsche, and Audi

RFID Integration Support for +500 Suppliers of OEMs e.g. VW, Porsche, and Audi

Dennis Pospich
Director, Data Elektronik
In the prototype environment, RFID applications have been tried and tested for years. Now, it is time for the transformation to mass production. The talk will present current emerging challenges and takes a look at how a transfer of the solutions that have been developed and integrated for the automotive industry can also be achieved in other industries where optimised processes in material management and in the flow of goods are required.
Automotive Parts Identification in the Transparent Prototype Project at VW

Automotive Parts Identification in the Transparent Prototype Project at VW

Dr. Malte Schmidt
Head of Information Systems, Virtual Vehicle Construction and Systems, Volkswagen
The roll-out of the Transparent Prototype project is accompanied by targeted RFID support, that helps suppliers employ RFID technology, to make it easier for them to get started with this new technology. The suppliers are qualified by Volkswagen for the TransparentPrototype project and quickly develop their own ideas about how RFID can be used profitably - a positive effect.“
