Thorsten Wischnewski, Head of RFID, Rako Security Label, in an interview with Dunja Kandel, „RFID im Blick“

What innovative new developments and labeling options does Rako pursue in retail with regard to transponder technology?

What I think is: RFID is just the beginning. Sensors could be the next step. In a current research project we are intensively dealing with the topic of wearable electronics. Tags with RFID interface that are permanently integrated into garments might enable new functions in the future. An additional benefit, we already offer, is tamper evidence for anti theft labels. When the tags are removed from the article, an alarm is triggered via a special EPC event.

Making Our Cities Smart

In the heads of some public administrators, mayors, public transportation managers or bankers, the future has already begun: For some time now, they have been focusing closely on the question of how mobile phones or multifunctional smartcards can be used not just for payment purposes, but for a whole range of other citizen services. NFC (Near Field Communication) – a cutting edge technology that enables secure wireless data transfer – plays a decisive role in this field as a technology component for a wide spectrum of mobile solutions.

Container identification using special transponders in a metal environment

A manufacturer of construction site containers detects more than 150,000 containers using a flat and yet robust transponder by HID Global

A trend towards ever smaller RFID transponders can be seen accross different applications. Why then does HID Global bring a transponder to the market that is rather a contrast to that trend with a width of more than ten centimeters? „Special requirements ask for special solutions“, is how Guido Kuhrmann, Sales Director IDT at HID Global, sums up the answer in a simple formula in dialogue with „RFID im Blick“. HID Global encountered special requirements at a container manufacturer that produces, sells, and rents containers for construction sites, for instance. In order to optimize all processes regarding the rental business, a UHF RFID transponder was developed by HID Global together with a manufacturer and a system integrator. The transponder meets all requirements in terms of design, robustness, function on metal, and high read range. HID Global sees growing potential in the field of metal containers or related fields, which is why the individually developed transponder was integrated into the standard portfolio.

Pool System in Retail

Complete Transparency in Container Management

About 10 million reusable containers are in circulation between more than 600 locations and suppliers of the biggest Switzerland retail company Migros every day – a major challenge when it comes to organizing logistics processes. In order to optimize the flow of goods and information sustainably and efficiently, the retail company has been counting on RFID based container detection since 2012 already. Since the integration, Migros was able to improve the transparency in the supply chain significantly, which is why another eight million labels were ordered from Inotec in February 2014. In dialogue with “RFID im Blick“, Christoph Reill, International Sales Director, reports, which added values companies, such as Migros, can generate with an RFID-based container management.

With an annual traffic of 2.4 billion passengers, Moscow Metro is one of the biggest metro systems in the world. All types of tickets were already replaced with RFID based smart cards in 2008. Since 2013, a new generation of contactless tickets has been rolled out – one of the biggest transport card applications in Europe.

Pallet Pooling

The Technology Is Ready, Where Are the Users?

At the beginning of 2013, the step was accomplished. The established EPAL wooden pallet became an „intelligent“ load carrier – thanks to RFID. Since 2007 already, EPAL investigated the use of RFID technology. Together with many technology partners and institutes, EPAL had developed a solution for almost five years. During the development, approved standards of manufacturers and pool operators had to be taken into consideration. And today? „We are ready and we can deliver high numbers of tagged pallets within a short period“, says Martin Leibrandt, CEO at EPAL. „Trade companies that called for the 'intelligent' load carrier before 2007, are unfortunately very reluctant now“, Ingo Mönke adds who is EPAL Project Manager RFID and Management Board Member of the German National Committee of EPAL.

Manufacture of Corrugated Board and Cartons

Cartons always produced and delivered “just in time“

Fork lifts with RFID readers and touchscreens, antennas in the production facility, RFID gates tested by customers and external suppliers – The company Klingele Papierwerke invests great effort for a product which is often only considered to be waste in the end: Packaging solutions made of corrugated board. This consideration was not a barrier for Klingele to further develop RFID solutions together with the system house Stonegarden. The positive experience since the introduction of the technology in 2008 in the finished goods warehouse were reason enough to push the further use. In which processes is RFID used meanwhile, which added value does the technology provide for logistics and delivery quality, and which further solutions might be realized in the future: that is what Christian Stangrecki, Central Logistics Director at Klingele talked about in the interview with “RFID im Blick“.

Intralogistics

Zero Delivery Errors

By building a new service and logistics center in Ludwigsburg, cable and joining technology developer, manufacturer, and supplier Lapp has increased its warehouse capacity from 70,000 to 90,000 cable reels compared with previous locations. At the same time,Lapp improved the security of commissioning and logistics processes. One of the main reasons: In two of the three halls, the products are stored and conveyed automatically using RFID technology. In total, 83,000 transponders are integrated into reusable system pallets and trays which are transported on 500 meters of conveying technology.

“Every day, 3,500 delivery items leave the warehouse on average. Since the initial operation in June 2012, only one in 10,000 deliveries was incorrect. We were a little surprised ourselves by the reliability, the efficiency, and the added values the system provides“, explains Peter Melansek, Corporate Logistics Processes, U.I. Lapp, in the interview with “RFID im Blick“.
