Tool Coding Using Industrial RFID

Tool identification using Balluff Industrial RFID increases efficiency, as it makes incorrect tool allocation or missing tools a thing of the past. All the tool-relevant data are stored without contact on a data carrier embedded in the tool holder. Automatic loading into the system memory means all the data are always correct and up-to-date. Because the data are continuously updated when the tool...
