Molds and fixtures are common assets in manufacturing, especially in discrete manufacturing. And how to manage a large number of mold and fixture assets, is a challenge for the operation managers, because most of the mold and fixture looks similar, it is difficult to achieve efficient and accurate identification via the only sealed number. By deploying an RFID system, molds and fixtures can be identified in seconds, so does their specifications and use history, what's more, volume assets can be scanned efficiently for assets inventory management. due to high temperature, vibration, impact, and other harsh environments of mold and fixture application, robust RFID tags and readers are applied. Normally RFID tags are permanently mounted to assets via screw, rivet, welding, or embedding, while handheld or tablet readers are used for the operation.
