RFID-BASED PROCESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
OPERATIONS - Apply Label (with printed UID) for Visual Checking onto IC
Tag
Process A
Process B
Process C
I – Attach IC Tag to camera.
II – Production History Data written to IC
tag
Production Process Information is
recorded. History data about
installation of important components
written to IC tag.
III – Reader/Writer reads from IC tag
and sends to Host, who sends to Printer
and Labels are printed.
The Reader/Writer reads the tag and
transmits it to the host computer. The
host computer sends the print data to
the printer, which prints micro QR code
labels
Traceability information collected (in
case repairs, servicing or support of any
kind is required afterward).

RFID-BASED PROCESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
SUCCESS FACTORS
1. Selection of Tag Inlets
The inlets manufactured by Nitta Industry are made of resin and are soft and flexible. This prevents
damage that can be caused to the components inside the camera.
2. Service and Maintenance Support
SATO’s maintenance and service support for all the printers and
scanners worldwide differentiated SATO’s proposal from the
rest.
3. Label Processing
SR412 has proved that it can dispense reliable and QR code
labels, 6x6 mm, that can fit onto the IC tag.
Note: SR is the Japanese version of GT412e
