Cogiscan introduces a revolutionary concept in feeder setup validation. This system is robust and flexible enough for use on all different machine types. The Cogiscan RFID Smart Feeder system can be retrofitted to an existing placement machine in the field. The customer’s inventory of "dumb" feeders can be easily and economically converted into "Smart" feeders, by simply attaching a low-cost RF tag to each feeder.
- Enables closed-loop feeder and component setup validation
- Eliminates human errors and reduces changeover time
- Provides real-time material inventory and traceability
- Quick and easy retrofit on any machine type
- Proactively scans all feeder slots in real time.
The Cogiscan RFID smart feeder system can be used in combination with Cogiscan software applications, including Line Setup Control, Traceability, Real-Time Inventory, Preventative Maintenance, etc. Alternatively, this retrofit kit can be integrated with feeder set-up verification software from third-party suppliers, to enhance the existing system by eliminating manual barcode scanning at the machine.
