Toyota-S.A. decided to their leadership position by an Automatic Tracking System in their manufacturing facility. The old Job system for capturing manufacturing required too much effort and real time information. needed real-time WIP information for the floor, stock control and management.

The Job Card systems of tracking contained only the build information needed by the technician at a particular station. The did not have the capacity for real-time tracking. It could not be relied on for access to build process item location, build and failure analysis. Furthermore, on the assembly line could no faster than the flow of the Stock would be held in the distribution yard for 3 days, due to paperwork processing, before it be released. Needless to say, method of tracking information was slow, prone to error and the capacity to offer any forward for future product builds. Toyota S.A. realized was it needed an ATS that could collecting data from

the start of the production process the various build processes and the far reaching scope of tracking the along its distribution path the country.

After reviewing the various ATS available to them, Toyota-S.A. realized that the only method to achieve their capture goals was to implement a Frequency Identification (RFID) RFID offers capabilities other tracking systems as bar code fail to offer. can survive the harsh conditions in automotive build facilities dirt, oil, extreme temperatures). Also, RFID do not require line-of-sight with readers. This allows the Tag to be placed in a variety of different on the product, offering a versatile

Toyota-S.A. tested several systems to determine which one the best solution.

Datalogic has a long-standing history with of the leading Domestic and International manufacturing companies. Datalogic has the expertise within the automobile industry to ensure a successful and RFID solution. That is Toyota-S.A. needed to move and ensure a successful application.

To their tracking requirements, installed fourteen of Datalogic HMS820 Passive Reader/Writers, one MicroMux Bus module and five of Datalogic Automation HMS150HT The HMS820 units read and information to the tags at each transfer location. The MM80 the communication interface between the Reader/Writers and the paint line And the HMS150HT Passive, High-Temperature RFID tags are mounted to the Paint Shop Dollies and providing a remote database at dollie and hanger. Importantly, particular tags are subjected to de-greasing diptanks and water stations as part of the preparation for the station. Once in the oven, are exposed to temperatures as high as The HMS150HT tags handle environment effortlessly. Furthermore, the

serve a dual purpose in application. The tags enable to track the vehicles at all points the painting process, thus their real-time tracking and they provide the capability to the maintenance records of each and hanger. This allows maintenance schedules for the dollies and to be routinely followed, helping to any unnecessary downtime.
