RFID technology makes robots run smarter and more flexible


With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, the field of automation has been constantly updated, and efficient and precise production has become the pursuit of various fields. As the market demand for intelligent production continues to escalate, intelligent robots have also ushered in unprecedented rapid development, especially in production processes with high risk factors. Compared with the traditional production management method, the use of manual production management of mechanical parts, the speed and accuracy of the reading and identification of mechanical related information in the work process will have a certain impact. Therefore, it is especially important to realize automated intelligent management. At present, the existing automatic identification technologies mainly include barcodes, smart cards, magnetic cards and RFID technologies. RFID technology makes the robotic arm run smarter and more flexible.


1 Management of robot parts production line


The use of RFID technology to achieve automatic control and monitoring of products on the production line of robot parts will greatly improve the speed and accuracy of production, improve work efficiency, improve production methods and save costs. The RFID tag can conveniently and accurately record process information and process operation information on the manipulator part production line to meet the needs of flexible production. The record of the worker's work number, time, operation, and quality inspection results fully realizes the traceability of production, and can also avoid mistakes caused by handwriting and visual information in the production environment.


2 Warehouse management of robot parts


The warehouse management of the manipulator parts is mainly realized based on the manual work of the corresponding specifications and the semi-automatic management of the computer. The disadvantage is that a large amount of manpower is required to carry out the work of standardizing the items, regularly checking the inventory, and registering the inbound/outbound storage. This makes the warehouse management problem of the robot parts very cumbersome and wastes a lot of time. The warehouse management system design of the robot parts based on RFID technology is to realize the automation of the item exit/input control, the storage position and quantity of the items, and the information inquiry process. Managers conduct statistics, inquire and master the flow of materials. The warehouse entry and exit goods of the logistics base are uniformly placed on the pallet management. The entry and exit records are manually recorded by the warehouse administrator and then input into the computer. Due to the huge amount of goods entering and leaving the warehouse every day, the warehouse administrator's work intensity is very large, and it is inevitable that There will be errors in this, resulting in high management costs and poor management efficiency.


A UHF tag is attached to each tray of the robotic parts warehouse, and readers are installed on the door of the warehouse. Each warehouse manager has a handset. In this way, before each batch of robot parts is put into the warehouse, the warehouse manager uses the handheld to scan the RFID tags of the robot parts on each tray, record the robot parts, and simultaneously write the labels on the trays under the robot parts by RFID, when the tray When the robot parts enter the warehouse, the readers on the door will directly read the robot parts information on the label and store them in the computer. The information management system in the background will automatically generate the records and accurately record the robot parts. Where in the warehouse, there is no longer a need to ship, you need to find the warehouse staff in rows and rows. It reduces the incidence of human factors in the management process and saves labor costs. The process of supply chain management for the entire robot part is simplified and more scientific.


3 Manipulator parts management in the supply chain


The application of RFID technology in the supply chain management of robot parts has reached a new stage. From procurement, storage, packaging, loading and unloading, handling, distribution, distribution, sales to service, the supply chain business processes and processes will be optimized. RFID technology will effectively solve the problem of input/output of various business operation data, control and tracking of business processes, and reduction of error rate in manipulator parts supply chain management.


RFID technology effectively assists in the successful completion of robot parts storage management. The RFID tag is a carrier of data and information in the storage management of the robot parts. The RFID reader is an RFID tag that recognizes the RFID tag on the robot parts for automatic identification and collection of data and information in the warehouse management, so that the robotic parts of the warehouse management need only Through the RFID reader, information can be displayed at each link. In today's logistics information integration construction, the manpower input will be greatly reduced and the management efficiency will be improved.
