Reliable Tambour-ID in paper processing industry

In paper manufacturing plants there is often a large number of machine rolls awaiting further processing, and it’s important to know which roll is which, and when it enters the processing, to know what to do with it. Any identification errors might lead to the wrong treatment of the paper roll and are expensive.

This can all be avoided by Identsystem AB’s RFID Tambour-ID system.

Identsystem AB’s Tambour-ID system is made for rough and dusty environments and communicates via a standard protocol, making it easy to integrate and compatible with older systems. The system is also compatible with older OIS-P systems.

The system consists of readers 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.

Excellent reading performance with Identsystems Tambour-ID

If you want close to perfect read- and operational reliability IdentSystem AB’s Tambour-ID system performs so close to 100% that it is hardly measurable.

It is very easily adapted and tuned to the different harsh metallic environments.

The system can replace the Baumer Ident OIS-P and is ideal for new installations. Ideal134 give the user full traceability back to master systems such as MES and similar and is invaluable for operators to avoid errors in handling and to trace production and quality data.

EVS138 Imager for Pallet handling

Ident System EVS138 Imager is a barcode scanner designed for mobile forklift mounting used for pallet handling. To enable use with double pallets EVS138 was designed with the possibility of connecting several cameras in parallel in order to scan a wider area.

EVS138 imager will read all common barcodes and 2D codes. It is based on the latest matrix technology and can withstand the tough industrial environments of forklift truck applications, including the shock and vibration stresses. It can also be supplied with its own heating element for use in freeze storages or outdoors in cold environments down to minus 30 degrees Celcius.

EVS138 can also be integrated with RFID readers such as our Ideal125, for positional readings of floor-embedded tags. The EVS138 imager autofocus and built-in error correction capabilities allow it to read codes of varied quality at distances between 0,2 m up to 13 m.

Benefits of using EVS144 Barcode reader

There are many reasons to use a forklift-mounted code reader. First, ergonomics and the working environment becomes better with a reader mounted on the lift. In all situations of cargo handling, it is important to reduce the handling as far as possible in order to minimise damage to the cargo, and if you ensure correct handling the number of errors are reduced and both customer and supplier can save money. Error in the warehouse can also be minimised at the same time as the risk of sending the wrong product to the customer is less.
If you also combine the EVS144 reader with a positioning system (by RFID), you can have almost 100% control over warehouse transfers and transactions. By always doing the right thing, the environmental impact is also lessened.

Summary of the benefits of EVS144:

  • Improved working environment/ergonomics
  • Minimised handling of cargo
  • Less damage on the cargo
  • Less or no stock handling errors
  • Fewer erroneous deliveries
  • Reduced environmental impact

Identsystem Ethernet-connected 500E LF–reader

IdentSystem 500E LF reader is a compact, easy to use LF reader capable of reading both 125 kHz and 132.5 kHz tags. 500E is ideal for tracking items on conveyor belts, pallet conveyors as well as CNC machinery. 
Configuration of the unit is done through a user-friendly web interface from your browser and configuration through a serial terminal is also available.

  • Read-Only + Read/Write 
  • Ethernet connection to PC for communication and data transfer 
  • Configuration by web interface or serial terminal connection 
  • Wide range of antennas is available. 
  • Reading distance depending on tag, antenna and environment
  • Support the following tags:
    125kHz: HITAG1, HITAG2, HITAG3, Q5, EM4x02, EM4x05 (ISO FDX B), EM4x50, TI-RFID.
    134.2kHz: 64bit R/O (8 bytes R/O), 64bit R/W (8 bytes R/W), 1088 bit multipage (117×8 byte R/W)

IDeal 134 RFID reader for Tambour-ID applications

IdentSystem’s Ideal134 RFID reader is not installed in nice papermills Tambour-ID system all over the world.

Our solution makes system design very flexible since we can design both the tags for different tambour sizes and types of metal surroundings as well as tailor-make antenna sizes and shapes depending on positionening needs. Antannas can also be fine-tuned for optimal readability, even in difficult environments.

The system can both replace the Baumer Ident OIS-P and is ideal for new installations. Ideal134 give the user full traceability back to master systems such as MES and similar and is invaluable for operators to avoid errors in handling and to trace production and quality data.

The IDeal134 reader connects 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.
