As accuracy and throughput requirements increase, the demands on logistics operations are also rising. It is crucial to use storage capacities more efficiently, set up flexible, modular conveyor systems and ensure end-to-end tracking of goods.
Turck meets these challenges with logistics-proven solutions: smart and rugged sensors, control solutions and machine safety technology as well as high-performance RFID hardware, systems and software. Our customers also benefit from Turck’s long-standing cooperation with system integrators, including Turck Vilant Systems – the turnkey solutions expert for UHF RFID projects in intralogistics.
In many production and logistics environments, there are protected areas or cabinets which require security to protect against unauthorized access. For low and medium levels of security, cylinder locks are often used. But the disadvantage of this approach is that a separate key may be required for each lock.
In logistics, incoming and outgoing goods must be detected shortly before the trucks are loaded or unloaded. With UHF RFID, this detection is reliable and also possible over long distances. So-called gates are set up for this purpose, which record the goods on forklifts or other industrial trucks directly as they pass through.
