Tambour identification has in the past mostly been done using Microwave-based systems. That hardware is now getting to a point where it needs to be replaced in order to warrant a safe and trouble-free operation in the mills. Since a few years Ident System AB offers an economic and well-proven replacement system based on LF-RFID instead of the microwave systems.
The system consists of a reader connected to the present Mill Executive System and will keep track of Tambour-ID, orientation and acceptable destinations. The Tambour-ID system easily integrates with various MES e.g. Honeywell Optivision, ABB Automation, Paperline and similar systems.
Ident System AB has in the past years successfully installed well over 30 systems and more are on the way. The customers have greatly appreciated the quick and easy installation and the good performance of the systems.
Ident System AB has put together a short system description of our Tambour-ID solution that can be downloaded from our website here: Link to Tambour-ID pdf.
