Total integration of product identification for automotive production processes is the dream of many industry leaders. With RFID-based identification of the car body, commonly referred to as "Body-ID", it is already possible to integrate and harmonise track & trace for the main line in car production.
This webinar showed how integrated identification is realised from the body shop through paint shop to assembly shop and beyond.
The specialists from SICK provided a real insight into the processes based on actual references and explain about the sensor technology that enables this innovation. They illustrated the benefits and lessons learned from past installations as well as an outlook of the next steps towards total integration.
