Danish Window and Door Company Doubles Output via RFID

Idealcombi has reduced the time required to produce a custom window or door down to about one minute, using EPC Gen 2 passive UHF tags to automatically adjust the settings on its manufacturing equipment.

By deploying radio frequency identification technology at its facility, says Arne Burlund, the company's IT director, Idealcombi has doubled the capacity of its plant without requiring additional employees.

With EPC Gen 2 passive ultrahigh-frequency tags attached to products, the system automatically adjusts the setting of assembly machines, based on specifications required by a particular order. Previously, the entire process was performed manually. The RFID technology also enables the firm to create a record of its production processes. In the event of a defect or problem involving a specific product, the manufacturing process can be easily retraced.
