The AIDA RF series is one of the most popular RFID Straightener Feeder products on the market. The AIDA RF series covers a full spectrum of material thickness and width handling abilities. It is designed to be most cost effective and safest for shipping and handling sensitive and complex applications that require the ability to process high volumes of product. The LFA series, also by Aida, is similar to the RFID but has a wider band capacity.
With both types of RFID straightener feeding systems, the RFID system is designed to identify and count objects as they come in contact with the RFID sensor. Once the product or object is detected, the feeder activates a series of electronic processes. The processes include breaking the object’s magnetic field to provide a low-level stream of electrical energy. The electric energy is used to induce mechanical movement inside of the object, which is then amplified by using an induced mechanical wave. This mechanical wave activates a second electrical process that causes the object to be scanned by the RFID sensor.
The ability of the RFID straightener to accurately locate the product or object enables the system to create a digital product outline. This outlines the shape and size of the product in digital format so that the item can be identified and purchased. The outline is an electronic representation that can be read by computer applications and further examined. There are different types of identification numbers that can be assigned to specific items such as “product number four” or “customer serial number 6”.
The RFID feeder is able to maintain continuous processing as long as there is a signal. Once the signal ceases to exist, the processing halts. The system is able to process hundreds of products during one processing cycle. Because of this extremely high processing rate, most companies believe that it is impossible for any other method of RFID labeling to compete with it.
The feeder is also capable of retaining data even after the product has been removed from the store or warehouse. In other words, it can process the product over again without erasing the previous processing data. This is possible because the RFID feeder can retain the data in its memory even after the product has been removed from the receiving device. This is also why this technology is preferred over bar code technology.
There are many benefits to be derived when the straightener feeder is used to increase productivity in the food service industry. Because of the ability to read the information that is fed into the system at any point, food service operators are able to make quick decisions about where to place products on the shelves and which items should be placed closer to the customer. When the information provided by the straightener feeder is able to be downloaded immediately, there is no need to manually enter the required data into a computer or to make manual calculations as is often required with bar code technology. There is also no need to wait for the product to be purchased from stock just to be able to manually input the necessary information.
